It's beyond madness that The Walking Dead hasn't recieved a single nomination!! Surely, surely, surely the most popular show on cable television should be acknowledged?!

It discredits the awards because it makes NO logical sense whatsoever.

I'm also VERY unimpressed that the Lady Kaka Show's been nominated . I'm not surprised though.
