On Thursday, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films held its 37th 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/Director/Executive Producer Frank Darabont received the prestigious George Pal Memorial Award for his twenty-five year body of genre work.

The Walking Dead faced heavy competition for this year’s award: BBC’s Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol and Sherlock, ABC’s Kung Fu Panda Holiday Special and Starz’ The Pillars of the Earth and Spartacus: Gods of the Arena were also nominated.
