Game of Thrones
Despite record high ratings and universal acclaim, one area in which "The Walking Dead" can't catch a break is recognition for its acting. The nominees have been announced for the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards, and "TWD" does show up, but not where we might have hoped.
HBO's "Game of Thrones" was the big winner at last night's Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards with six, but two of the horror crowd's favorites also took home one Emmy each.
Well, this is a shocker: "American Horror Story" has tied "Mad Men" to lead the nominees for 2012 Emmys with 17 nominations each. It did so in the category of "Miniseries or Movie" rather than "Drama Series", but we'll take it. Read on to learn what other genre shows are in the running - yes, "The Walking Dead" makes an appearance!
With Friday the 13th falling right in the middle of Comic-Con, it's shaping up to be the biggest horror day of the show. Here's the schedule for Day 2, but as always be sure to check the official SDCC site for updates.
As someone who stood in line several hours last year for the "Game of Thrones" Comic-Con panel and still didn't make it inside, this latest bit of news concerning when presentations for both that show and "True Blood" will be held gives me hope that this year might be different.
Body count may not be the MOST important thing to horror fans, but many agree it's near the top of the list so when we heard that the results of a 2012 TV Body Count Study included quite a few of our favorite series (and most likely several of our readers' as well), we thought we'd pass them on.
For everyone who has been complaining about the Oscars, it's time to announce the nominees for the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films' 38th Annual Saturn Awards. Most of these names should definitely help make you feel better about things!
It should be no surprise to anyone that Jessica Lange took home the "Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series" SAG Award last night for her exceptional performance as Constance in FX's "American Horror Story". Here's hoping she'll be back next season!
Nearly three and a half of the dullest hours of my entire award-watching life just transpired as the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards is history. Sadly, our genre only took home two awards this year, but they were well deserved!
There's not a lot of horror included in this year's Golden Globe Awards nominees, but what is there should make genre fans happy, even if TV shows like "The Walking Dead", "True Blood", and "Dexter" have been overlooked for some new blood.
Nominees were announced today, December 14th, for the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, and despite a few oversights that we're pretty surprised by (for instance, where the hell is Claire Danes from "Homeland"?), we were pretty pleased to see a few horror entries, especially in the television categories. Read on for the 411 regarding the genre-related nominees.
The last time we did a story about HBO's amazing "Game of Thrones" series joining forces with Dark Horse for a new product line that's set to debut in the spring of 2012, all you guys seemed to care about was when you can get your hands on the Blu-ray box set. Well, the answer has come!
We've been on the fence as far as covering the wildly popular "Game of Thrones", just mentioning the show here and there as it's seemed appropriate, but this latest news to cross our desk is just too cool to ignore: Dark Horse Deluxe is partnering with HBO on a vast "Game of Thrones" product line debuting in the spring of 2012, leading up to the show’s second season premiere in April. Read on for the details!
2011 is starting to wind down, which means it's time for all the various awards shows to begin rearing their heads. First up are the People's Choice Awards, which for some reason ditched the Favorite Horror Movie category they instituted last year, but we won't hold that against them too much since "The Walking Dead" made the cut for Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show.
We haven't given much coverage here at Dread Central to HBO's stellar "Game of Thrones" series, an adaptation of author George R. R. Martin's best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy novels, but with the news coming today that genre director Neil Marshall has signed on to direct an episode from the series' second season, we just couldn't resist mentioning it. Plus, we hear there are more supernatural shenanigans planned for Season 2 so you'll want to read on for those details.
