With a show like Westworld, one that features the best of the western and sci-fi genres, there is no limit to the variety of consumer products that can be created based upon the show.

Is Anthony Hopkins Returning to Westworld? New Interview Hints at His Involvement in Season 2

He may not have have won an Emmy last Sunday, but Anthony Hopkins‘ riveting performance as Dr. Robert Ford on Westworld helped make the first season a critical and commercial success for HBO. As the founder and director of Westworld, he ruled the park with an iron fist and appeared to be the chief obstacle to the hosts gaining consciousness. As we saw in the finale, however, Ford was actually helping the hosts all along. His sacrifice at the end of season one was the catalyst for the host rebellion, led by Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood). Ford died to set them free.

Sidse Babett Knudsen Reflects on Her Westworld Character’s Death Scene; Tessa Thompson Talks about Season 2’s Shift in Power

The wound of drawing a blank at this past Sunday’s Primetime Emmys is still fresh, no doubt about it. Of course, the shows that did win big certainly did so on their own merit, but even so, it feels like Westworld succumbed to robbery at the hands of the Academy’s voters.

That being said, no one can take away from the incredible performances of the first season cast. Among this talented group of individuals is Sidse Babett Knudsen, who brilliantly portrayed Theresa Cullen, the Head of Quality Assurance who stumbles upon a scheme that ultimately costs the character her life. While Knudsen was not nominated for her portrayal of Theresa, that by no means takes away from the fact that she played the character incredibly well.

Emmy-Awards

As the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards kicked off at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, millions tuned in to see who would take home television’s highest honors. The show definitely did not disappoint, as host Stephen Colbert and each of the evening’s presenters and winners graced the stage in entertaining and humorous fashion.

The awards actually officially began at last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys, where our very own Westworld was up for 15 of its 22 nominations. The HBO hit tied with NBC’s Saturday Night Live and Netflix’s Stranger Things for most wins, earning 5 trophies for its outstanding creative achievements during its freshman season.
