No Wins for Westworld at the 2017 Emmy Awards

Surprised? So are we, but we do congratulate the winners. Westworld was one of the most nominated shows (22 nominations in total) this year but it was pitted against some really diverse and fantastic shows.

There were high hopes for Westworld and Stranger Things this year. As fans of the show, perhaps it’s consoling to look at the 5 Creative Arts Emmy Awards that Westworld took home only a week back.

Here are the key winners for Emmy 2017:

  • Outstanding drama series: “The Handmaid’s Tale”
  • Outstanding lead actor in a drama series: Sterling K. Brown, “This Is Us”
  • Outstanding lead actress in a drama series: Elisabeth Moss, “The Handmaid’s Tale”
  • Outstanding writing for a drama series: Bruce Miller, “The Handmaid’s Tale”
  • Outstanding directing for a drama series: Reed Morano, “The Handmaid’s Tale”

Game of Thrones wasn’t eligible for nomination this year if any of you are wondering.

Of course, its a little disappointing for Westworld fans and we noticed some of us are reacting on Twitter.

But the show didn’t entirely go unappreciated at the 2017 Emmys. Host Stephen Colbert made a Westworld sketch with Jeffrey Wright where Colbert was a naked android from Westworld. Check it out:

Also, it’s worth checking out how the cast of Westworld looked at the Red Carpet, so here we are:
