Once a Golden Globe nominee for Best Television Series Drama, awards season has left little love for The Walking Dead since the shows first season, much to the chagrin of many fans. However, the People’s Choice Awards offer fans the chance to have their say in who is worthy of award recognition and this year they have given four nominations to the zombie apocalypse series.
Stars Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, and Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Greene, have earned acting nominations for Favorite Sci-Fi Fantasy TV Actor and Favorite Sci-Fi Fantasy TV Actress, respectively.
The Walking Dead itself received nominations for Favorite TV Show and Favorite Cable Sci-Fi Fantasy TV Show.

The People’s Choice Awards will air on January 18, 2017 on CBS.
Up until this point, our characters have lived through conflicts… Disease, hunger, scores of the undead, tragedy, betrayal, and unthinkable loss. Through this, they’ve become formidable. Powerful. Unstoppable.
To start Season Seven, that power is taken away. They had found safety and stability. They had created a home. They thought the world was theirs. They thought they knew the world. They were wrong.
The first half of Season Seven sees our group fractured, broken, bereaved, and picking up the pieces while living under the thumb of oppression. Negan will have successfully brought the survivors under his control, brutally convincing them to live under his rules with a deadly and horrific example of what happens if they don’t.
Other characters are unaware of what’s happened, but have become separated from the group either by incident or choice — they will learn that they can’t escape this new turn of their world, either. This half season is about these characters starting over.
The overall theme of the season is beginning again. The world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s bigger and it’s even more dangerous.
The Walking Dead airs on Sunday at 9:00 pm ET on AMC.
