2012 Emmy Nominations Include American Horror Story and The Walking Dead

The 2012 Emmy nominations have been announced and American Horror Story tied Mad Men for the most categories with 17 nominations. The Walking Dead also picked up a few nominations and we have a list of the major nominations for you to check out.

As you’ll notice below, American Horror Story was submitted as a miniseries which made it easier to pick up so many nominations. This series qualifies for these categories because each season is a self-contained story with new characters and cast members.

The Walking Dead was not nominated for any of the major acting or series categories, but did pick up nominations in “Prosthetic Makeup for Series, Miniseries or Movie”, “Sound Editing, Series”, and “Special Visual Effects, Series”. We’d be very surprised if Greg Nicotero and his team did not win the makeup category for their season 2 work.
