The Walking Dead may have been roundly ignored by most mainstream award ceremonies, but at least one of its stars will be getting some recognition... maybe.

Melissa McBride, who plays Carol in the popular AMC series, has been nominated for a Critics' Choice Award for her work in Season 4 of [The Walking Dead](series:201193). Her nomination, which occurs in the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category, is the only nod given to The Walking Dead in the entire Critics' Choice Awards. This mirrors last year, where similarly its only nomination was for Andrew Lincoln in the Best Actor category.

McBride has some tough competition however, with the likes of Christine Baranski (The Good Wife), Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad), Annet Mahendru (The Americans), Maggie Siff (Sons of Anarchy) and Bellamy Young (Scandal) also going up the award.

The 4th Critics' Choice Awards marks the latest awards ceremony to not even nominate the massively popular The Walking Dead for a single non-acting, non-special effects award. Alternatively, Breaking Bad has earned 4 nominations, as did The Americans, while The Big Bang Theory, Fargo, The Good Wife, The Masters of Sex and The Normal Heart all earned 5 each. HBO's Game of Thrones and True Detective managed 2 each.

What do you think? Is The Walking Dead snubbed by critics and award shows?


Does The Walking Dead deserve more recognition in award ceremonies?
