Thandie Newton's Acceptance Speech at the 2018 Emmys

Here's What Thandie Newton Said in Her Emotional Censored Emmys Speech

Thandie Newton's incredible performance as Maeve Millay on HBO's Westworld won Newton her first Emmy on Monday night. The 45-year-old actress took home the award for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series, and her speech was nothing short of inspiring. "I don't even believe in God, but I'm going to thank her tonight," Newton said before adding, "I'm so f*cking blessed." She then went on to thank the cast and crew of Westworld and gave her 18-year-old daughter, Ripley, a sweet birthday shout-out. "I get to guide you and love you and protect you," she said. Aww!
