We’ve reached the last category in our preliminary voting stage today, for the Watchers on the Wall Awards: Best Fight of Season 8! That means we’ll be quickly jumping into finals voting, revealing the top 5 winners in every category so you can choose your favorites of the year. The ultimate winners will be revealed all in one night, at a live streaming ceremony here at Watchers. For those of you who miss the ceremony, don’t worry- the video will be saved, and the results posted in print as well! But the ceremony is always fun, with giveaways for those watching live. The Watchers on the Wall Awards date will be posted this week, so stay tuned- that info is coming soon. If you haven’t seen a category up for preliminary voting, that means it’s going right to finals voting!
Onto today’s voting! Best Battle, the award for the complete large-scale battles (Battle of Winterfell, Battle of King’s Landing, etc), is one of those categories going right to finals voting. Best Fight is the award to recognize smaller-scale fights or individual moments: one on one skirmishes, small-group dust-ups, and the like.
Please choose your five favorites from the preliminary poll. The ground rules: Select up to FIVE nominees from the poll. You can choose fewer if you like, but you can’t choose more than 5. (Visit the initial WotW Awards post for a complete explanation of the rules and process.)
At the end of one week (Thursday 10/31/19 at 12PM Eastern Time), whichever five fights that have the most votes will continue on to the finals. The results of the polls will be revealed when it’s time to choose the winners in the finals.
