Watchers on the Wall Awards Season 8: Best Supporting Actor – Preliminary Round


So, a fun thing happens when you slaughter a good chunk of the cast before the final season of Game of Thrones– it really clears the decks when it comes time for fandom awards season. In all of our acting categories, the nominees are few and unified enough that we can go ahead and confirm the final nominations for all the performance categories. That is except for one, the category that is an absolute bloodbath every year due to an overabundance of talent. And that’s the one we’ll be voting on today- Best Supporting Actor!
