MTV Movie Awards 2019: Game of Thrones fans outraged as Captain Marvel beats Arya Stark fight
Game of Thrones fans were left seething after Arya Stark’s battle with the Night King didn’t win Best Fight at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
The death sealed an important victory for the army of the living, with Arya being branded “heroic” by viewers.
However, it was Larson who was honoured with the popcorn statue, bouncing up on stage to say the award was “so cool” and thanking her stunt doubles and trainers who were standing either side of her.
Fans immediately made their feelings known as they slammed the Game Of Thrones “oversight” online.

“Ummm @MTV how the fudgeeee did Arya Stark (@Maisie_Williams ) not win? She’s is the baddest of the baddest. This has me so upset,” commented somebody else.
Captain Marvel also beat competition from Captain America vs. Thanos in Avengers: Endgame and Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s fight against inequality in On The Basis of Sex.
The film, which was released back in March, also includes Jude Law and Samuel L Jackson among its cast.
