Both Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene) and Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) of The Walking Dead went home with coveted awards from Spike TV's annual Guys Choice Awards, which aired last night, June 11, and now they’re each thanking the fans and contemplating different uses for their Mantlers. Lauren got the interesting trophy because she scored the Jean-Claude Gahd Dam award, while Norman snagged the Biggest Ass Kicker trophy and the Most Dangerous Man title. In the video below, both TWD actors give their respective thanks.
“Thank you guys so freaking much,” Lauren began, pointy Mantlers in hand. “I’ve been looking for my next zombie apocalypse weapon to wield…
After daydreaming about how many walkers she could off with those bad boys, Lauren brought it right back to the fans. “I love you guys so much,” she said. “Thank you, this means the world to me.”
And what would a backstage acceptance speech be without a little bit of profanity? “Jean-Claude Gahd Dam, motherf—er,” she concluded.
Now onto Norman. We were already aware that the actor had a little mishap with his finger before receiving the award, and apparently he didn’t handle it too well. “I just want to thank Spike for this award, Most Dangerous Man,” he began. “I cut the tip of my finger off earlier and cried like a little girl so I don’t know how appropriate this is but I want to than Spike for this.”
And, like Lauren, Norman was busy thinking about all the havoc he could stir up with his new toy. “I’ll go stab somebody with this now,” he said. We bet Daryl could do some real damage with those things!
Do you think Lauren and Norman’s Mantlers would make a good weapon in the zombie apocalypse? Check out the complete video below and tell us what you think!
