The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards are still almost two months away, but we do have new tidbits to share about some of Westworld‘s nominees. 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.

It’s hard to believe Westworld‘s second season is already over, and that we don’t have a new episode on the way! As we try to find a way to fill the Westworld shaped hole in our lives, some of the cast have taken to social media to share their memories from season two with fans. We’ve rounded up some of the most fun posts we’ve seen – check them out below!
Alas, the second season of Westworld is at an end…and what a mind blowing end it was! As everyone converged on the Valley Beyond, some hosts escaped to paradise, some to the real world, and many others died – perhaps to be born again? There were also tragic human deaths (RIP Lee and Elsie) and others not so tragic (good riddance Charlotte, Strand, and sadistic tech guy whose name no one bothered to learn). While we try to recover from the finale and begin the long wait for news of season three, let’s take a deeper look at “The Passenger” with new interviews and videos!
The driving question of Westworld has always been about the nature of choice. In a world where the principal players are hosts and humans, the matter of choice has always been the defining metric of delineation between the two. A human can choose who they want to be, what they do, and ultimately who they become. A host can simply be reprogrammed by a human, the surface argument was, so by the very nature of that reality hosts do not have any real choices of their own. Yet as the byzantine narrative moved forward, it became quite clear that that explanation in its simplicity betrayed a fundamental misunderstanding of what it means to have a choice.
