'Walking Dead' shut out of major Emmy categories

The 2014 Emmy nominations are in, and while we saw plenty of familiar names in the mix — your Breaking Bads, your Veeps — we also saw a few surprises pop up in the major categories. Plus, some great shows and actors got sadly overlooked as well. Here's a rundown of this year's biggest snubs and surprises, according to Yahoo TV.

The Walking Dead: Aside from some People's Choice and Critics' Choice awards love and a Golden Globe nod early in its run, AMC's wildly popular zombie drama has been virtually ignored by the awards shows. And once again, it got shut out of the major Emmy categories.

The Governor's saga, Carol's heartbreaking decision in the grove, the powerful backstories, that showdown in the finale... the snub is particularly egregious this year, arguably the series' richest collection of episodes yet.
