‘Red’ and ‘The Walking Dead’ Adaptations Nominated for Golden Globes

Comic books are well represented in the nominations for the 68th Annual Golden Globes Awards, honoring the year’s best in film and television. Based on the long-running Image Comics series created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore, The Walking Dead has been nominated for Best Television Series – Drama. Adapted from the WildStorm graphic novel by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, Red will compete for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical. The Walking Dead and Red have been embraced by audiences and critics, with The Walking Dead in particular breaking ratings records for its demographic. The series, which stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, was renewed for a second season before the first had even concluded. For its part, Red features an all-star cast that includes Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich. Both projects based on original creator-owned comics, and, interestingly, both deviate fairly dramatically from their source materials.

The last comic book adaptation to turn up at the Golden Globes was The Dark Knight, based on DC Comics’ Batman. Heath Ledger won Best Supporting Actor in 2008 for his portrayal of The Joker.
