Now this is an Emmy reaction.
“Westworld” star Tessa Thompson celebrated the HBO show’s whopping 22 nominations in the only way she knew how: by getting down to the classic rap jam, “California Love.”

The video capturing her grooving — alongside her co-star Simon Quarterman, wearing red lipstick (why, we’re not sure) — appears to have been shot inside her trailer on the “Westworld” set. That would make sense, given the show’s second season is currently in production.
“Westworld” tied with “Saturday Night Live” on Thursday as the most nominated shows of 2017. Thompson was overlooked, but her show netted major nominations including drama series, lead actress (Evan Rachel Wood), lead actor (Anthony Hopkins), supporting actress (Thandie Newton) and supporting actor (Jeffrey Wright). The actress plays Charlotte Hale, the ruthless Executive Director in charge of managing many facets of the titular adult theme park.
Season 2 of “Westworld” is likely to debut on HBO sometime in 2018. Thompson will next be seen as warrior Valkyrie in “Thor: Ragnarok,” which opens Nov. 3.
