As fans of The Walking Dead, we are very proud of our stunt team and all of the hard work and passion they bring to the set of The Walking Dead to make scenes like Spencer zip-lining across a cable above the hungry walkers or a huge tower collapsing or Glenn falling off a dumpster so exciting yet safe for all those involved in creating those scenes for us.

The stunt ensemble honorees will be announced from the red carpet prior to the show during the Live Pre-Show webcast on the SAG website and People magazine website beginning at 6 pm est.  The SAG Awards will be broadcast on TNT and TBS on Saturday,  January 30 at 8 pm est.
