Great news for Walking Dead fans today, everyone's favorite walker killer, Daryl Dixon, has been named MTV's TV character for 2014!
While us Walking Dead fans already knew of Daryl's awesomeness seasons ago, it's always cool to see a character get the recognition they deserve! MTV described Daryl as "the beating heart of the group," and the character who "is growing and changing like no other character on TV," and I definitely agree!
Daryl Dixon a.k.a. Norman Reedus even sent a video to send his thanks to all of us fans, as well as the amazing cast of [The Walking Dead](series:201193), and well, he seemed to be wearing some truly awesome face paint throughout the short snippet:

Check out just a few of the times Daryl Dixon proved he was the most awesome TV character of 2014:
When he carried Beth after she got injured
Way back in the second half of Season 4 at the start of 2014, Daryl proved his kind and caring nature when he took care of Beth and carried her after she hurt her foot in a hunting trap
When he didn't hesitate to go after Beth's captors
In the second episode of Season 5, "Strangers," Daryl and Carol are talking when a car with the same white cross as the one that took Beth speeds passed. Without hesitating, Daryl jumps in the car, along with Carol, determined to find Beth again.
When he took steps to heal himself
In Season 5, episode 6, "Consumed," Daryl and Carol made their way to Atlanta to find Beth and stayed in a temporary housing facility, where Carol had stayed with Sophia years before. Later it was revealed, when it fell out of his bag, that Daryl had taken a book from the facility titled "Treating Survivors of Childhood Abuse," showing just how much Daryl was trying to move on from his past.
When he beat up a guy with a walker skull
Typical badass Daryl behavior. It's been 5 seasons of Daryl kicking ass and taking names, and hopefully he doesn't plan on stopping any time soon.
When he carried Beth out of the hospital
If this one didn't get you straight in the feels then you probably have an ice cold heart. If Daryl cries, we all cry!
Is Daryl the best character in The Walking Dead?
