Westworld took home four Emmys this year including a big win for Thandie Newton in the category for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series!
Westworld deserved all 21 awards it was nominated for at the 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Season 2 was an intricate maze that enthralled fans and strengthened our love for the characters.
The talented sci-fi series was lucky enough to win 4 Emmy awards this year:
- Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series- Thandie Newton
- Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media Within a Scripted Program
- Outstanding Hairstyling for a Single-Camera Series
- Outstanding Makeup for a Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic)
Westworld had to beat out some major competitive players which included Game of Thrones for these awards, and we are quite proud of them for their achievements. It is truly inspiring to see one of the most advanced and talented shows on television receive recognition for all of the visual and theatrical efforts that they put into creating such a visually stunning series.
And while some of the awards were presented during the Creative Emmys, Sunday’s award ceremony allowed us to see Thandie Newton graciously accepting the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Although she seemed surprised by the win, true fans knew from the beginning that she was going to be a winner.
This is Newton’s first Emmy win which makes this even more momentous for her, fans, and the series in general. Last year, Ann Dowd of The Handmaid’s Tale beat out Newton for the Emmy but this year it was Newton who walked away with the golden statue in her hand.
As for all of the losses, Westworld will just have some new records to beat with season 3, and we know they can do it! Congratulations to all the winners especially to our divine Maeve, Thandie Newton.
