Thandie Newton (‘Westworld’) murders hooker and tries to take control over other robotic hosts [Exclusive Emmy Episode]

Gold Derby can exclusively reveal that Thandie Newton is entering the “Westworld” episode “Trace Decay” as her Emmy submission for Best Drama Supporting Actress. This installment of the HBO program aired November 20 and was the 8th episode of the first season. In this segment, robotic host Maeve (Newton) is having distressing flashbacks to her previous life. She orders lab workers to give her administrative privileges so that she can control other hosts and also depart the amusement park completely. She has visions of the Man in Black (Ed Harris) attacking her and her daughter in the past and then murders hooker Clementine.

Will Newton prevail at the Emmys on her first attempt? She is competing against an entire field of fellow newcomers — Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”), Ann Dowd (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), Chrissy Metz (“This Is Us”), and Samira Wiley (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) — plus two-time champion Uzo Aduba (“Orange is the New Black”).

The British native won a Critics’ Choice Award for this role in December and was also nominated at the Golden Globes and SAG Awards. She has a previous Screen Actors Guild trophy as part of the Best Film Ensemble for “Crash” (2006).
