The Walking Dead changes nearly every season, introducing us to exciting new characters and plotlines. While some seasons have certainly been better than others, an argument could be made that the 2016 episodes at the end of Season 6 heading into Season 7 were among some of the strongest that the AMC show has made. Yet the show isn't nor has it ever been given any awards love by the critical faction, and we're here to walk you through a few of the reasons why the show never gets love.

There Are Too Many Key Players

While members of ensemble casts have gotten nominated by the Golden Globes over the years, The Walking Dead has more key players than nearly any other show on television and it also has a penchant for killing off more major players than most other shows. People show up to watch characters like Rick, Daryl, Carol and Michonne kick-ass and make the tough decisions, but the show really spends a lot of time expanding its universe and introducing us to an ever-growing number of people living during the walker apocalypse. Sometimes we'll spend 30 minutes or even an entire episode getting to know a new character or spending time with a character that isn't a lead on the series. It's an amazing character study on dystopian societies, but it means that the key players don't always get the screen time they might get on other shows and that could be translating into a lack of award nominations.
