This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced its nominees for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, and among the picks for the "Best Television Series: Drama" category was AMC's "The Walking Dead." A full list of nominess can be found on the Globes website.
The series adapted from Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard's Image Comics ongoing has already proved a ratings smash with its first six-episode stint, but a nomination for a major award goes a long way to cement its reputation as a critical darling as well.
Also nominated in the category are fellow AMC series "Mad Men," CBS' "The Good Wife," Showtime's "Dexter" and "Boardwalk Empire" from HBO who unsurprisingly leads all TV nominees with 12 nods.
The winners will be announced January 16 on NBC at 8:00 PM EST/5:00 PM PST. For more info, go to the award show's official website. And for all the news on "The Walking Dead" stay tuned to CBR and Spinoff Online.
