Big congrats are in order for the cast and crew of The Walking Dead seeing as how the hit AMC drama was nominated for seven 2015 Saturn Awards — more than any other TV show!

The nominations for the 2015 Saturn Awards — which are presented annually by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films to honor the top works in science fiction, fantasy, and horror in film, television, and home entertainment — were announced on March 3 by Doug Jones (Hellboy) and Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story) and we couldn’t be more excited for TWD.



For starters, the drama based on Robert Kirkman’s comics is nominated in the Best Syndicated / Cable Television Series category, going up against 12 Monkeys, American Horror Story: Freak Show, Continuum, Falling Skies, Salem, and The Strain.

The absurdly talented Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) scored a nod in the Best Actor category, while his co-star Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) was recognized for his work in the Best Supporting Actor category.

As for the ladies, Emily Kinney (Beth Greene) and Melissa McBride (Carol Peletier) are facing off in the Best Supporting Actress race alongside Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who), Caroline Dhavernas (Hannibal), and Lexa Doig (Continuum).

What’s more? Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes) earned a nomination in the Best Performance by a Younger Actor category, while Andrew J. West was singled out in the Best Guest Performance race for playing disturbed cannibal Gareth.

Not surprisingly, many members of the TWD cast and crew were thrilled with these impressive nominations, so we’ve compiled their sweet and awesome reactions below:

The Walking Dead Season 5 airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
