Today’s Emmy nominations brought great news for Westworld, which tied Saturday Night Live for the most number of nominations. HBO didn’t have Game of Thrones in the running for this year’s Emmy Awards, but they did strike gold with Westworld, which earned a whopping 22 noms. Namely, Westworld is nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, and stars Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton, and Evan Rachel Wood received nods too.
That’s right, 22 WHOLE NOMINATIONS.
Everyone is, of course, psyched including nominee Wood who took a moment to react to the amazing news! She told Entertainment Weekly that she tries to not stress too much when nominations come out, but she is ecstatic:
Clearly, Westworld is a collaborative effort because they also got nominations for writing, directing, production design, cinematography, costumes, and casting! Luckily, we will likely be getting a second season of the show in 2018 and Wood provided a little tidbit of information on what we can expect:
Ooohhhhh CHAOS, we love the sound of that.
Good luck to Westworld at the Emmys on September 17th. With that many noms, surely they’ll take home a big haul.
