Avengers: Endgame receives 4 noms as GOT’s Maisie Williams receives nom for ‘best hero’ in MTV Movie+TV Awards

‘Avengers: Endgame’ has been nominated for four gongs at this year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 2019 fantasy sci-fi blockbuster has the potential to come out on top at the forthcoming event, including walking away with the prestigious ‘Best Movie’ prize, after finding itself among four categories with the likes of ‘Shazam’, ‘BlacKkKlansman’ and ‘Captain Marvel’.

The ‘Best Movie’ award is for anyone’s taking as ‘Avengers’ will go up against ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’, ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’, ‘Us’ and ‘BlacKkKlansman’.

Robert Downey Jr. – who plays Iron Man – will also be hoping to score the ‘Best Hero’ accolade for the movie but, before he can add the trophy to his cabinet, he’ll have to beat off stiff competition from Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson, Game of Throne’s Maisie Williams, Shazam!’s Zachary Levi and BlacKkKlansman’s John David Washington.

The Best Villain category is equally as strong with Jodie Comer’s Villanelle from ‘Killing Eve’, Joseph Fiennes Commander Fred Waterford from ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, Josh Brolin’s portrayal of Thanos in ‘Avengers: Endgame’, Lupita Nyong’o’s Red in ‘Us’ and Penn Badgley’s creepy Joe Goldberg in the Netflix series ‘You’ all up for nomination.

Sandra Bullock has been recognized and awarded with a nomination in the Best Performance in a Movie section for her portrayal of Malorie in ‘Bird Box’, but is up against the likes of Lady Gaga’s Ally in ‘A Star is Born’, Lupita’s Red in ‘Us’, Amandla Stenberg’s Starr Carter in ‘The Hate U Give’ and Rami Malek’s depiction of Freddie Mercury in ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

‘Game of Thrones’ has found itself up for a number of awards this year too – including Best Performance in a Show and Best Fight – but producers are no doubt hoping it’ll bag Best Show.

This year’s ceremony will also see three new categories – Best Real-Life Hero, Most Meme-able Moment and Reality Royalty – in the hope of switching things up a little.
