The Walking Dead wins Satellite Awards

The 17th annual Satellite Awards were held on 12/16/2012 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Beverly Hills. And the TV show The Walking Dead walked away with some of the award pie.

The Walking Dead won for Best Television Series, Genre. It was a tough group to win, and the show was able to top American Horror Story (FX), Supernatural (The CW), Fringe (Fox), Grimm (NBC), and newcomers Once Upon a Time (ABC) and Arrow (The CW).  The show also was awarded the Special Achievement Award for Best TV Ensemble.

Other winners this year include The Big Bang Theory (comedy, CBS), Homeland (drama, Showtime), Les Miserables (best ensemble, motion picture), and Terence Stamp (outstanding contribution to the entertainment industry).

Other AMC shows received nominations as well. Mad Men earned two nods for best Actor and Supporting Actress. Breaking Bad nabbed three nominations for Actor, Supporting Actor and Best Drama Series.

The Satellite Awards are an annual award given by the International Press Academy. The awards were originally known as the Golden Satellite Awards. In 2011, Satellite nominations in the motion picture categories have been pared down from 22 to 19 classifications; the change reflects the merger of drama and comedy under a general Best Picture heading, including the Best Actor/Actress headings and the Supporting headings.
