‘Westworld’ Emmy submissions: 33 ballot entries include Evan Rachel Wood, Aaron Paul and 10 potential noms for ‘Parce Domine’
Westworld” was an Emmy favorite over its first two seasons: nine wins out of 43 nominations, and Best Drama Series bids in both 2017 and 2018. It took an extended hiatus before its third season, but it returned in the spring of 2020 with its new batch of mind-bending sci-fi episodes. So will the show get back into top Emmy races after two years away? Scroll down to see the show’s 33 submissions on the ballots from Best Drama Series all the way down to Best Special Visual Effects.

Westworld” has always been distinguished by its blockbuster values, creating both a futuristic setting and period settings within that. When it started, the show was about a Wild West theme park in the future, and the show’s world has greatly expanded since then. That has helped the show exceed 20 nominations in both of its previous seasons. And Creative Arts crafts awards account for most

From ‘Evil’ to ‘Servant’ and ‘Defending Jacob,’ Writers Are Leaving Room for the Audience to Be Author
The Killing” may have been ahead of its time.

Veena Sud’s crime drama, which first ran on AMC and was later picked up by Netflix, delivered a 13-episode first season in 2011 that declined to solve the central mystery of who killed small-town teen Rosie Larsen (Katie Findlay). When the season ended that June, there was an uproar on social media from the audience. They had given it so much time, energy and engagement while theorizing online about whodunnit, but failed to receive an answer. Sud announced the plan was always to definitively resolve who the perpetrator was by the end of the second season, but for many, that wasn’t enough.

Almost a decade later, though, there is a surge in streaming outlets that allow for not only more (and more unique) storytelling, but also new ways for the audience to engage with said content. This is causing show

Dream Emmy Nominee Mike Colter on Evil's Auspicious Start, Wicked Babies, the Goat-Demon Therapist and More

Dream Emmy Nominee Mike Colter on Evil's Auspicious Start, Wicked Babies, the Goat-Demon Therapist and More
So much of Evil‘s appeal, star Mike Colter says, is that you’re never sure exactly what the hell (or heaven) is going on.

In a recent chat with TVLine, the actor — and TVLine Dream Emmy nominee for Lead Actor in a Drama — explains how Season 1 of CBS’s supernatural drama wasted no time setting an intriguing premise: There may be answers to life’s great mysteries, as explored by a priest-in-training (played by Colter) and a forensic psychologist (played by Katja Herbers), but there’s no guarantee that we’ll ever get them.

‘Westworld’ Star Ed Harris on Whether William Will Really Be ‘The Good Guy’ Now

‘Westworld’ Star Ed Harris on Whether William Will Really Be ‘The Good Guy’ Now
(Warning: This post contains major spoilers for Sunday’s “Westworld.”)

After almost three seasons of being the Man in Black in a world full of gray, William (Ed Harris) realized his “purpose” on Sunday’s episode of “Westworld” — and that’s to be “the good guy” now.

This revelation came after a very intense Ar therapy session in which William literally had to take a closer look at himself — five versions of himself, actually — to get to the bottom of why he is the way he is and who he wants to be going forward.

Led by his hard-ass, late father-in-law, James Delos (Peter Mullan), this multi-William group chat included the real William, who is stuck in a mental facility thanks to Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), along with virtual versions of his Man in Black persona, the “good guy” philanthropist/Delos exec he presents himself as to the world, Young

‘Westworld': Could William’s Daughter Emily Be a Host?

‘Westworld': Could William’s Daughter Emily Be a Host?
(Spoilers ahead for the April 5 episode of “Westworld” on HBO)

This week’s episode of “Westworld” gave us an answer to the biggest mystery of season 3 thus far. But there’s still four more episodes left this season, and more mysteries to unravel. And the one I’m choosing to focus on at this moment is that of Emily (Katja Herbers).

I don’t know how our priorities will shift moving forward, of course, but it feels very much as though we got a big new nugget to chew on this week. The real Emily, so far as we know, is dead, shot in Westworld by her father William (Ed Harris) in season 2. But the season 2 finale gave us a weird scene at the very end in which she was chatting with William in the wreckage of a Westworld facility, implying heavily that William in this scene is a host.

‘Westworld': Wait, Dolores Did What?

‘Westworld': Wait, Dolores Did What?
(We’ve got some big spoilers ahead for the April 5 episode of “Westworld”)

Four episodes into season 3, “Westworld” answered the single biggest questions anyone had this season: which hosts were in those five pearls that Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) stole from the park in the season 2 finale? And the answer is, uh, not really what anybody would have expected before the season began.

We already knew that one of them was Bernard (Jeffrey Wright), and that fact doesn’t appear to have changed based on this big revelation. But it turns that the other four control units were not any of Dolores’s old confidantes or other hosts she knew. Instead, she had made copies of herself.

So, yeah, the other four pearls were just other Doloreses. If you’re wondering how this is possible, the answer is easy: the Cradle. The Cradle facility in Westworld contained backups and memories

Westworld Season 3 Episode 4 Review: The Mother of Exiles
This Westworld review contains spoilers.

Westworld Season 3 Episode 4

There’s something pathetic about seeing a villain brought low, not by the good guys, but by their own paranoia and hubris. Good beating bad? Hooray, kudos all around. Bad guy reduced to a shell of a man, ranting and raving at the ghosts in his head in a Grey Gardens mansion? Not quite as satisfying, especially when that villain is The Man In Black, Aka William (Ed Harris), president of Delos and terror of Westworld and all its hosts. An entire season of William luxuriating in chaos and violence in an attempt to get to the heart of the maze, only to be trapped in a maze of hallucinations and grief, tormented by Grace (Katja Herbers) and constant reminders of his own failures as a husband, father, and friend.

His wife is gone, dead by misadventure or suicide. Grace is gone,

‘Westworld’: 5 Burning Questions From Season 3 Episode 4

‘Westworld’: 5 Burning Questions From Season 3 Episode 4
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched the fourth episode of “Westworld” Season 3.

Looks like William has finally reached the center of his maze.

This episode of “Westworld” saw the return of the Man in Black (Ed Harris) — however, he was far from the confident gunslinger of the first two seasons. Instead, he was a nervous, disturbed wreck, haunted by visions of his daughter (Katja Herbers), whom he shot and killed last season because he thought she wasn’t real.

What is real, however, is the threat of Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) — or rather the host version of her — who tricked William to prove he has gone mad, and then took full control of Delos.

Meanwhile, the two dynamic duos of Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Caleb (Aaron Paul), and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) were in a race to track down Liam (John Gallagher Jr.

Westworld Season 3: What We Know For (Almost) Sure

Westworld Season 3: What We Know For (Almost) Sure
Warning: contains major spoilers for Westworld season two.

Westworld’s season two finale left an eddy of questions in its wake. Some will only be answered in season three (starting this Sunday and Monday respectively on HBO and Sky Atlantic), but two years’ worth of publicity circuit interviews with the showrunners and cast over have already provided answers to the others.

We may not yet know, for instance, which five consciousness pearls Dolores smuggled out of the park, or who’s ‘driving’ the Charlotte Hale host, but we have had a steer on whether Stubbs is a host, when the Man in Black’s post-credits sting takes place, if Emily was human when she was killed and more, all straight from the horse’s mouth (or at least from a horse-adjacent mouth).

Below then, are the facts as we’ve been told they stand…
