Thandie Newton took home her first award for her turn in Westworld as Maeve. Newton, who was also nominated for the role last year, told those in attendance, “I don’t even believe in God but I’m going to thank her tonight. I am so blessed. I am so blessed.” The 45-year-old actress also thanked the cast and the crew of the series before giving a special birthday shoutout to her daughter, Ripley.
“My daughter Ripley turns 18 today and I get to guide you and love you and protect, which is my north star. I love you so much, baby,” she told the audience. Westworld is set to return for a third season, although a date has not been set just yet. Creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy told The Hollywood Reporter in August that fans should prepare for a “radical shift” in season three. “The hosts have a different version of mortality, a different outlook,” Nolan told the publication. “I think clearly with Dolores, as she’s laid out, there is a longer view here, a larger set of goals. They’re existential. They span eons. And that’s a fascinating level of story 
to engage in.” Congrats Newton!
