With four nods each, HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” and Magnolia Pictures’ “RBG” are tied for most nominations at the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The final season of “Game of Thrones” is nominated for Best Show for the third year in a row, along with Best Hero for Maisie Williams as Arya Stark, Best Fight for Arya Stark vs. the White Walkers and Best Performance in a Show for Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen.

“Avengers: Endgame” followed suit, with nominations for Best Movie, Best Fight, some love for Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man with a Best Hero nod, and Josh Brolin as Thanos getting a shout-out for Best Villain.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the first public figure to be nominated in the Best Fight category — “RBG” is also nominated for Best Documentary, Most Meme-able Moment and a new category called Real-Life Hero.

“BlacKkKlansman,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” and “Us” join “Avengers: Endgame” in the Best Film category. Joining “Game of Thrones” in the Best Show category are “Riverdale,” “The Haunting of Hill House,” “Schitt’s Creek” and “Big Mouth.”
