Last night, we announced the winners of our first annual WiCnet Awards for season one of Game of Thrones. These awards were voted on by the fans (nearly 50,000 votes in total) and they were our way of recognizing all those great moments and performances that the big awards shows wouldn’t be able to. Below is the full list of winners and then a breakdown of each category and how the voting played out. Thanks to all who voted!

The live ceremony was a lot of fun. If you didn’t make it, you missed out. Miltos Yerolemou even gave a surprise acceptance speech!
Winter Is Coming: Congrats to all the winners! And to all the nominees, as well. So many great performances and moments, it was hard to narrow each category down to a handful of nominees (which I was all too reminded of in the comments for each category). But it was even harder to pick the best out of each of these. I think the winners were all well-deserved though. Thanks to everyone for participating! Can’t wait to do it again next year!
