Horror Well Represented in People’s Choice Awards 2017 Nominees

In case you have any lingering doubt that we are now in a golden age of horror on TV, you need look no further than today’s announcement of the nominees for the People’s Choice Awards 2017. The genre is more than just well represented; in fact, two of “our” shows – “The Walking Dead” and “Stranger Things” – landed in the Best TV Show category. Not Sci-fi/Fantasy… BEST.

You’ll also find “The Exorcist,” “Supernatural,” “Bates Motel,” “American Horror Story,” “The Vampire Diaries,” and even “Lucifer” and good ol’ “Teen Wolf” on the list.

And we have some decent choices for a change in the Best Thriller Movie category. Maybe next year they’ll give us our Horror Movie category back.

In the meantime, here are this year’s horror highlights; visit peopleschoice.com for the full rundown. Fans can vote via PeoplesChoice.com, Facebook, and/or via Facebook Messenger. Voting ends Thursday, December 15, 2016, at 11:59 PM ET. The results will be announced from the Microsoft Theater L.A. Live, airing live on CBS on Wednesday, January 18, 2017.
