Last night the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films held its 38th annual Saturn Awards in Burbank, California, and The Walking Dead was honored to take home the prize for Best Television Presentation. In addition, the series’ Writer and Executive Producer Robert Kirkman received the Academy’s inaugural Innovators Award, which was presented to him by The Walking Dead‘s former show runner Glen Mazzara.
The Walking Dead faced heavy competition for this year’s award: TNT’s Falling Skies, Starz’s Camelot and Torchwood: Miracle Day, HBO’s Game of Thrones and The Science Channel’s Trek Nation were also nominated.
A big congratulations also goes out to Laurie Holden (aka Andrea) from The Walking Dead for winning a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress on Television.
