Thandie Newton found religion and God on Monday night at the Emmy Awards, after she won the supporting drama actress award at the 70th Annual Primetime Emmys for “Westworld”.
Thandie Newton who gave a speech while accepting her supporting drama actress award for playing Maeve on the HBO sci-fi series, said: “I don’t believe in God, but I’m going to thank her tonight.”
She also told the audience:
“I am so blessed. I am so f***ing blessed…” At this point the actress clapped her hand over her mouth as she realised she’d dropped the expletive – to more cheers from the audience.
“To work with the people that I have gotten to work with,” she said. “The cast and crew of – I can’t believe I’m here – the cast and crew of Westworld, I love you all so much.”“My family, my daughter Ripley turns 18 today and I get to guide you and love you and protect you, which is my north star, I love you so much baby,” she said. “Thank you, thank you for this,” she concluded, before walking offstage with The Handmaid’s Tale stars Elisabeth Moss and Samira Wiley, who had presented her with the award.
