Gold Derby can exclusively reveal that Thandie Newton is entering the “Westworld” episode “The Winter Line” as her 2020 Emmy Awards submission for Best Drama Supporting Actress. This program aired March 22 and was the second episode of the third season for the HBO show.
In this installment, Maeve (Newton) kills herself after an escape from Nazi guards, returning her to the Operations system. She then tries to lobotomize herself before Lee stops her so she can still try to reunite with her daughter. She discovers that all of her park experiences have been part of a virtual reality simulation.
Newton has received her third career Emmy nomination for this role after winning in 2018. For this 2020 contest, she is competing against reigning champ Julia Garner (“Ozark”), past winners Laura Dern (“Big Little Lies”), Meryl Streep (“Big Little Lies”) and Samira Wiley (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), previous nominees Helena Bonham Carter (“The Crown”) and Fiona Shaw (“Killing Eve”) and rookie contender Sarah Snook (“Succession”).
