Best Television Series — Drama

  • “Empire”
  • “Game of Thrones”
  • “Mr. Robot”

I am protesting this category  because one of the very best shows on TV is never in this nominated. I would pick “The Walking Dead.” If people who vote on these TV awards would give it a good peak, they would find out that the zombies aren’t the only interesting thing here. The story revolves around a cast of characters that are both interesting, tragic and often funny. Shame on every award show that totally overlooks “TWD” except for technical awards.

“Certain things leave you in your life and certain things stay with you. And that’s why we’re all interested in movies- those ones that make you feel, you still think about. Because it gave you such an emotional response, it’s actually part of your emotional make-up, in a way.”
