    I mean… It’s not the best drama series ever but it never had an actor or actress nominated. Shame on the Academy for not recognizing the work of Andrew Linconl, Melissa McBride, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, Steven Yeun (now Oscar-nominated thanks god), Sarah Wayne Callies, Chandler Riggs….. and so many others.

    Because the recent seasons have been trash lol.

    Considering it made AFI and DGA for season 1 it probably would have been series nominated with the expanded field but it’s no surprise why the Emmys haven’t touched it above the line in recent times (as deserving as some of the actors may be).

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    I stopped watching during season 8, and i can say that when The Walking Dead was good it was GOOOOOOD, very well developed, the acting and the characters were a wonder to watch, that is what hurts the most about it, so many snubbed performances.

    Because it’s trash.

    However, I agree that Andrew Lincoln and Melissa McBride deserved nominations at some point.

    It’s a genre show that didn’t have the benefit of being seen as prestige like GoT and was overshadowed (awards wise) by other programmes on it’s network (Mad Men, Breaking Bad).

    Haven’t seen the show but far as am aware the general consensus is that it’s been largely trash since one of the main characters got killed off in the season 7 premiere.

    Because it’s a bad show. Only season one is worthwhile. The writing is quite bad after that season and that just kills the actors performances. AMC being greedy killed it’s chances of being a prestige genre show.

    Andrew Lincoln deserved nods for every season he was in.
    He is so good.

    For Your Emmy Consideration:
    Matthew Rhys for "Perry Mason" as Leading Actor in a Drama Series
    Ethan Hawke for "The Good Lord Bird" as Leading Actor in a Limited Series
    Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn for "Wandavision" as Leading and Supporting actress in Limited Series
    Tobias Menzies for "The Crown" as Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
    MJ Rodriguez for "Pose" as Leading Actress in a Drama Series.

    Season 3 is what I consider to be nomination worthy especially for Lincoln and it was the peak of the show.

    Sadly, AMC was heavily focused on Breaking Bad and they weren’t willing to take a break with Mad Men so there’s little attention given to TWD’s chances.
