Do the Emmys hate The Walking Dead?

I like many fans of AMCs The Walking Dead have grown used to the Television Academy ( Academy? Isn't that like a janitor calling themselves a custodial engineer? ) snubbing the show save for a few special effects or technical nominations.

This year was no different. The Walking Dead was only nominated in two categories, Outstanding Special and Visual Effects and Outstanding Sound Editing.

I would like to call bullsh*t on the Television Academy not nominating any actors from the Walking Dead this year for an Emmy. One in particular stands out, Melissa McBride.

Anyone who has actually watched season 4 of The Walking Dead knows that at the very least Melissa McBride should have been nominated for her performance in episode 14, "The Grove". To me that was the best performance by a series regular ever. I stress regular because in Season 3 episode 12 Morgan Jones' performance in "Clear" was outstanding and the best in the entire series run so far.

I am seriously wondering why the Television Academy could snub McBride that way. I believe there are two factors hurting the actors in The Walking Dead. One being the fact that it is what could be called a genre show and most snooty Television Academy voters have never actually watched it. God forbid they watch something with zombies in it. You can't blame AMC for this one either as they made a concerted effort to push their actors this Emmy season.

The other being jealousy over the ratings success of the show. I can't think of any other sane reasons why the show is constantly snubbed in the acting categories the way it is.

McBride gave a performance that was at the very least worthy of an Emmy nomination. I guess she like most actors on the show will have to settle for a Saturn Awards nomination and that is a damn shame.

Was "Strain" poster creepy enough to have been pulled?

Cable network FX has decided to remove a poster for it's upcoming series "The Strain" because it simply creeped to many people out. My first thought was that was what a good poster for a horror series/movie is supposed to do. But anyway FX gave in to the public outcry and is removing the posters. Check out the poster below, do you think it was too creepy?

How will most people die during a zombie apocalypse

Hey zombie fans. In my opinion when many think of the inevitable zombie apocalypse they overly focus on the zombies as the main threat. I think that's a HUGE mistake. So with that in mind what do you think would be the #1 cause of death during a zombie apocalypse?

Film Review: Birth of the Living Dead

Birth of the Living Dead is a documentary directed by Rob Kuhns. The movie is about the making of George A. Romero's iconic film Night of the Living Dead. To be honest if you are a die hard fan of the movie you may not learn that much but to hear George Romero explain things makes the short 76 minute running time a must watch.

George Romero tells some great stories about getting the film made and finally finished. It's fun to see how many different roles cast and crew played to get the film made.

Without beating you over the head with it the documentary touches on racism although race is never actually discussed in the film. During this part of the film Romero makes an admission that was surprising to me about that fact.

The interviews with film historians, horror writers, and fans are great especially when fans discuss what went on in the theaters while people watched the movie.

I highly recommend you check this movie out if you are not only a George Romero fan but a zombie fan. I found the film on Comcast via Streamflix for free. It's on Youtube for $3.99 here: Youtube: birth of the living dead. It is also available via video streaming ($3.99) and on DVD at Amazon. The links are below:
