Game of Thrones wins mtvU award for ‘OMG Moment of the Year’ at SDCC


Last night at San Diego Comic-Con, mtvU gave out their first ever Fandom Awards during a special event at Petco Park.

The awards were entirely fan voted, and Game of Thrones walked away with the award for “OMG Moment of the Year.” Season 4 was full of shocking moments, but the one to beat them all was King Joffrey’s early demise. Beating out the Breaking Bad and How I Met Your Mother series finales, the release of the new Star Wars cast photo, and Ben Affleck being cast as Batman, the Purple Wedding turned out to be the biggest ‘OMG’ moment of all.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Natalie Dormer were on hand to accept the award, and looked to have had a great time on stage, and posed for some fun pictures together.

Watch Nikolaj and Natalie accept the award on behalf of the show below. Nikolaj jokes that it’s a bit strange celebrating the death of his son, while Natalie says they look forward to giving us more OMG moments.

The awards air on television Sunday, July 27 at 8 pm ET.

  • Dragonboner:
    a) Oberyn head pop should have won

    Not really. Once people knew Oberyn was fighting the Mountain, there were just two possible outcomes – details could have varied, but based on what the Mountain is like, was that really such a surprise?

    Joffrey’s death, on the other hand, came out of the blue in the book, and in the show if you hadn’t read the book.

  • Damn, I love me some Margery/Natalie! Smokin hot. IMO she is the best looking woman on the show, especially in her wedding dress….. WOW!

  • The Loon,

    I saw her at a premiere last year, thought why the hell is she doing duck lips, she was doing it so hard it was a laugh. Nik was th eexact opposite, walked up the street in jeans and acted like he couldnt believe he was recognized, talke dto everyone who talked to him before fans noticed and ran up for autographs.
