One of the most common questions we here at Watchers On The Wall received when we established the new site was, “Are you going to do an awards show this year?” Well, as you can see, there will be a yearly show awarding the best of Game of Thrones season 4, voted on entirely by the fans.
After a few days of discussion between the WotW staff and some of the community here, we’ve decided on a structure for the awards in which everyone’s opinion will be heard, and everyone’s favorites will have a shot. In past awards, people have expressed some frustration at their choices never having a chance so we hope this system will make things more equal.
Update 8/6: There’s just one day left in the initial open nomination period, so be sure to get your nominations in today!
The categories we’ll be voting on are:
Best Supporting Actor
Best Supporting Actress
Best Guest Actor (appearance in 3 episodes or less)
Best Guest Actress (appearance in 3 episodes or less )
Best Death Scene
Best Visual Effects Scene
Best Action Scene
Best Comedic Scene
Best Dramatic Scene
Best All-around Quote
The way to decide winners will be a three-step process.
3. Final Round Voting: A second round of polls will determine the winner of each finalized category.
The winners of the Watchers on the Wall Awards will be announced on one night, on a date to be determined not too far in the future. We’re still planning the event, but it’ll be a party. We’re thinking live chat, Bex drinking pink moscato and talking about Kit’s hair, and that’s just the start.
By the way, Greatjon of Slumber took the initiative in getting the awards going again over at WotW and is helping out in a huge way with the polls, so we’d like to give him a big thanks!
We’ll keep these comments open for five days to accept initial nominations. Not long after that, we’ll start the polls. Vote early, vote often!
