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. Fans of the incredibly successful HBO show made their feelings of discontent clear as Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel scooped the award over Maisie Williams’ character’s triumphant tussle. Many felt Arya’s moment of glory at the end of the Battle of Winterfell was worth the top prize, which saw her plunge her Valyrian steel dagger right into The Night King’s stomach. 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.[[gallery-0]] Fans immediately made their feelings known as they slammed the Game Of Thrones “oversight” online.> .@brielarson gave shine to her stunt doubles in her acceptance speech for Best Fight for Captain Marvel and I have GOOSEBUMPS⚡️MTVAwards pic.twitter.com/tL2YYRRmDh> > — Movie & TV Awards (@MTVAwards) > > 18 June 2019One wrote: “Are you freaking kidding me Captain Marvel won’t best fight over Captain America and Arya from Game of thrones.
