The Walking Dead has once again been snubbed by the Emmys and has failed to garner a single nomination. This is despit AMC's zompocalypse drama breaking all sorts of ratings records for the third year running and delivering a fourth season that many - myself included - think is the strongest one yet.
As always with the Emmys, there are plenty of familiar faces returning, especially in the category for Outstanding Actor in a Drama, or, as I like to call it: The Category Where Six Guys Show Up and then Bryan Cranston Wins.
Here are some of the nominees:
Game of Thrones
House of Cards
OUTSTANDING ACTRESS IN A DRAMA
Claire Danes, Homeland
Lizzy Caplan, Masters of Sex
Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Kerry Washington, Scandal
Robin Wright, House of Cards
OUTSTANDING ACTOR IN A DRAMA
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad
Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom
Jon Hamm, Mad Men
Kevin Spacey, House of Cards
Matthew McConaughey, True Detective
Woody Harrelson, True Detective
OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA
Josh Charles, The Good Wife
Jon Voight, Ray Donovan
Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad
Jim Carter, Downton Abbey
Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
Mandy Patinkin, Homeland

I know I'm quite biased towards The Walking Dead (because it's awesome!), but I'm really surprised it failed to score a single nomination. I really enjoyed Season 4 and thought it contained some of the best writing and performances we've seen on the show to date.
Some of the work done by the cast - especially Melissa McBride and the whole 'child murder' thing - was astonishing.
Are you seriously telling me this isn't worthy of award recognition?
