While fans of The Walking Dead may despair at how often the show seems to be passed over for acting accolades come award season, thankfully there's always been one aspect of the series that seems to get the recognition it deserves, Greg Nicotero's special make-up effects team.

Not only has Nicotero and his capable crew managed to secure an Emmy nomination for their make-up, but it was recently announced that the show is also up for a Make-Up Artists And Hair Stylist Guild Award in the Best Special Make-Up Effects category!

The series has some stiff competition, with make-up artists from Game of Thrones, Penny Dreadful, Saturday Night Line and #Westworld also nominated in the same category, though with its long history being nominated and winning in similar categories in other awards, there's no doubt that the show is a top contender.

While the Make-Up Artists And Hair Stylist Guild Award are due to announce the winners on February 19, The Walking Dead itself returns with the remainder of Season 7 on February 12 on AMC.
