Evan Rachel Wood, Westworld- Best Performance By An Actress In A TV Series – Drama

In her role as the android Dolores in the HBO series Westworld, Evan Rachel Wood had to figure out how to appear human while subtly suggesting her character’s robotic existence.  “The hosts are so human,” she explained to the HFPA.  “Finding those little moments to take you out of that was really interesting.  The tiny shifts or the blink that may be slightly off . . . we would have to ask questions like, do I sweat? Do I squint when the sun is bright?”  The series is based on the 1973 movie of the same name, but the action is limited to one Western-themed amusement park whose hosts accommodate the wildest wishes of their guests.  No fantasy is too far out to fulfill, and violence and death are taken in stride.  This is the third Golden Globe nomination for Wood.
