A few weeks back, we asked you, the fans of Game of Thrones, to provide the pool of nominations for this year’s Watchers on the Wall Awards. The submissions have been sorted, scrutinized, and tallied, and the time has finally come for this year’s awards voting, celebrating season 5, to properly begin.
The first category you’ll all be voting on is Best Supporting Actress. But before we jump into that, we’d like to announce the nominations for Best Actress! The field for Best Actress is much narrower, and so like last year, five nominees will go straight to the finals of Best Actress with no need for a preliminary vote.
The actresses nominated for Best Actress are once again Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams. Congratulations!
Now, for the Best Supporting Actress voting!
In the preliminary round voting, we’re looking to narrow this group down to the top 5 performers. So, in order to find viewers’ top 5 picks for Best Supporting Actress, we’re asking that each of you select up to FIVE nominees from the poll. You can choose fewer if you like, but you cannot choose more than 5.
At the end of 72 hours (Thursday 8/20/15 at 9AM EDT), whichever five actresses have the most votes will continue on to the finals. (Note: in the final rounds, you will only have one vote to cast in each category!)
We’d like to give an extra special thank you to Greatjon of Slumber for handling the monumental task of tallying the nominations!
The results of this poll will be revealed when it’s time to choose the final winner of Best Supporting Actress, in a few weeks. For now, feel free to debate and campaign for your favorites.
Enjoy, and let the voting begin!
*Reminder: you may choose up to five nominees in this poll!*
