TV’s most-watched series “The Walking Dead” is hoping to add more Emmys to its mantle this year, including one for Best Stunt Coordination. After years of on-screen fights, explosions and countless zombie attacks, this is the first nomination in this category for the AMC action series and stunt coordinator Monty Simons.
Rival Emmy nominees in this year’s Best Stunt Coordination race are “Boardwalk Empire,” “Game of Thrones,” “Sons of Anarchy” and last year’s winner “The Blacklist.”
The zombie series may be a ratings juggernaut, but so far it only has two prosthetic makeup Emmys to show for all of its success. In 2011, the “Days Gone By” episode prevailed while in 2012 it was the “What Lies Ahead” episode.
“The Walking Dead” could triple its total Emmy haul this year as the show is nominated in four Creative Arts categories:
Best Prosthetic Makeup
Best Sound Editing
Best Stunt Coordination
Best Supporting Visual Effects
