Westworld‘s second season was at times exciting, moving, shocking, and (unsurprisingly) complex. The confusing time shifts upset many fans, while others enjoyed putting the puzzle pieces together. As the finale came to an end, however, the stage was set for a very different Westworld – with a number of characters dead, many more locked away in a virtual world perhaps never to be seen again, and a few lucky escapees. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy reflect on season two and tease where the story is headed next.
Westworld Roundup: Evan Rachel Wood on the Evolution of Dolores; Creating the Beauty of Shogun World; The Special Effects Behind Westworld’s Violent Delights
Emmy season is in full swing as we count down the days until the awards show on September 17th. Will Westworld cash in on any of its 21 nominations? Only time will tell. While we anxiously wait to see how it fares, we bring you a slew of interviews from some of the show’s Emmy nominees – including lead actress Evan Rachel Wood and members of the creative team responsible for the stunning visuals of Westworld.
Composer Ramin Djawadi has worked on two successful, big budget HBO shows, and his music for each is instantly recognizable. Considering the acclaim he’s received for his work, it’s shocking to realize he has only been nominated for an Emmy four times – with zero wins. Hopefully that will change this year, as Djawadi has garnered a double nomination for Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score) for Westworld (“Akane No Mai”) and Game of Thrones (“The Dragon and the Wolf”).
Whether he wins or not, no one can doubt the impact Djawadi’s music has had in shaping both series. In a new interview with POPSUGAR, Djawadi shares his experiences with scoring Westworld and Game of Thrones and gives insight into his creative process.

We have over a month left to wonder if Westworld will take home any awards at the 70th Primetime Emmys, but the show’s 21 nominations give it pretty good odds. One of those nominees is Jimmi Simpson, who is up for his first ever Emmy as Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series. VFX Supervisor Jay Worth is hoping for his second win in the Outstanding Special Visual Effects category, for which he garnered an award in 2017. In new interviews, both men discuss the hard work they put into Westworld to earn their nominations.

Gold Derby has revealed the episode submissions for Jeffrey Wright (Bernard Lowe), Ed Harris (William/Man in Black), and Jimmi Simpson (young William). Wright and Harris are going head to head in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, while Simpson is up for Outstanding Guest Actor. Check out the episodes below!
Westworld season two is over, and season three is more than a year away, but at least we can look forward to the upcoming 4K Ultra HD and Blu Ray release! As reported by Icon vs. Icon, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced Westworld Season 2: The Door will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu Ray, and DVD on December 4, 2018. Both the Limited Edition 4K Ultra HD and Blu Ray release will include a digital copy of the series.
One of the main storylines of Westworld‘s first season was that of the ill-fated lovers, Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and William (Jimmi Simpson). The finale revealed that losing Dolores was the catalyst for William’s transformation into the cruel and sadistic Man in Black (Ed Harris). Season two showed us some of the aftermath of William’s first visit to the park, including his changed attitude toward Dolores, and hosts in general.
While William and Dolores didn’t share much as much screen time together this season, Simpson and Wood still delivered wonderful performances that garnered them both Emmy nominations. In two new interviews, they share some of their experiences working on Westworld.
The nominations for the 70th Emmy Awards were announced this morning, and Westworld garnered an incredible 21 nominations – including Outstanding Drama Series! This falls just short of leader Game of Thrones (with 22) and helps put HBO in second place for network nominations with 108 total. Netflix, with 112, secured the top spot this year. Check out the list of nominees below!
Westworld is so well known for it’s talented cast, stunning cinematography, and complex storylines that it’s easy to overlook it’s amazing visual effects. Season two certainly upped the ante in this area with it’s CGI animals, new park locations, and considerably more violence. In a new interview with Animation Magazine, VFX Supervisor Jay Worth shares how his team brought Westworld to life.
