10 fake awards we think should be given to Game of Thrones Season 7

SEASON 7 *SPOILERS* ARE HERE. You’ve been warned.
We’re certain we speak for the whole of Australia, heck the whole world, when we say we are completely devo that Game of Thrones is over for another year, or two. And what a way to leave us hanging – Tormund are you with us!?

We’re ready to go on record: this has been the greatest season ever. We have so many favourite moments it’s hard to know where to begin! To pay tribute to the season that was, we’ve come up some #GOTAwards to help remember Season 7.

The Taking One For The Team Award

samwell tarly

…Goes to Samwell Tarly for a) being a good lad and cleaning up all that poo (seriously we still feel sick) and b) for slicing off Jorah’s Greyscale (we’ll never be able to eat pie again thanks to that clever editing).

Honourable Mention
goes to Bronn for saving Jaime’s life, even if Jaime himself was none too impressed that he pushed him off his horse: “You could’ve killed me.” No Jaime, you had that covered yourself. Bronn saved your ass, so thank the Old Gods and the New.

The Death With Dignity Award

lady Olenna

…Goes to Lady Olenna Tyrell, God bless her. Not only did she neck that poison in a fashion reminiscent of Cersei/Tyrion necking wine, she didn’t let the Lannisters have it all their way. The words “Tell Cersei I want her to know it was me” re: Joffrey’s death was almost as satisfying as the Purple Wedding way back in Season 4.

Honourable Mention goes to Dickon Tarly. Well, tbh he was pretty stupid if you ask us, refusing to bend the knee to Dany and choosing to die beside his father, but he stood true to his beliefs and remained loyal to his family. 

The Creep Of The Season Award

Little finger and sansa

100% goes to you, Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Baelish. (This 100% needs no explanation.)

Honourable Mention goes to Qyburn. That guy just gives us the shivers.

The Most Satisfying Death Award

littlefinger dies

…Goes to Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Baelish without a shadow of a doubt! We’ve been hanging for this moment ever since he set a trap for Arya. No, scrap that, since Season 1. We’re now debating whether his death is even more satisfying than Joffrey’s. We’re going with yes because he thought he had the Stark sisters fooled, when in fact they had him cornered. 

Honourable Mention
goes to no one, because let’s face it, hardly anyone important or significantly evil died.

The Best Dressed Award


…Goes to Dany and her white cloak. Just when we’d started to think it was about time she changed it up a bit.

Honourable Mention goes to the Lady of Winterfell, Sansa Stark. Even Arya couldn’t help but comment on those “pretty dresses”.

The Saddest Death Award


…Goes to Viserion. We’re still grieving the saddest loss of the season no thanks to one heck of a javelin throw from the Night King (that almost became an award in itself but Pedestrian beat us to it, thanks guys). Our grief soon turned to anger when he was brought back to dead-life as an ice-breathing destroyer. 

Honourable Mention goes to Tormund!? Is he even dead? Who knows and because we won’t find out until Season 8 (or when he’s spotted on set à la Jon Snow), we’ll give this notable mention to Thoros of Myr who froze to death after being bitten by a dead bear. 

The Player Of The Season Award

Arya Stark

…Goes to Arya Stark. The girl has all the sass and we are SO unworthy. First she hood-winked those burly doormen, then she outsmarted the slipperiest creep in the whole of Westeros just when he thought he had outsmarted her. 

Honourable Mention goes to Tyrion for trying to be one step ahead of his incestuous siblings. 10 out of 10 for effort just don’t ever confront Cersei on your own again.

The Travelling The Distance Award


…Goes to Gendry. Not only did he spend three whole seasons rowing, he ran, we don’t know, a marathon(!?) in the snow to send a raven to Dany to help save Jon Snow and his Motley Crew from the Army of the Dead. Props to him ‘cos we can’t even run a marathon on tarmac.

Honourable Mention
goes to Samwell Tarly for making it all the way back to Winterfell from the Citadel. We can’t wait for his reunion with Jon or should we say, Aegon Targaryen OMG. 

The Battle Of The Season Award

loot train

…Goes to The Loot Train battle. What was not to love about Drogon torching all those Lannisters? Huge props to the Dothraki fighters for standing on moving horseback…

Honourable Mention goes to the fight Beyond the Wall, even though it should never have happened – why did you throw those rocks, Sandor, why!? You almost got Tormund and Jon killed!

The ‘Best Character Get-Together’ Award

Cersei and Jamie

…Goes to Episode 7 when all the big players: Cersei, Jaime, Dany, Tyrion and Jon, and all our other faves: Brienne of Tarth, The Hound, Jorah Mormont, Missandei, Ser Davos, Lord Varys, Theon and Euron Greyjoy, Qyburn, The Mountain, Bronn and Podrick finally shared the screen together. We waited SEVEN seasons for this greatness, thank you HBO!

Honourable Mention to Sansa, Bran and Arya’s reunion, it was all kinds of creepy and wonderful, especially when they conspired and killed Littlefinger.

So those were just some of our favourite moments in Game of Thrones Season 7. Now for one ‘Long Night’ of a wait for Season 8.
