Westworld Vs.The Handmaid’s Tale: What They Have In Common, and Who Should Win the Emmy

#TeamSciFi Vs. #TeamDystopia

After the Emmy Nominations were announced earlier this morning, I posted this status on my Facebook page: "If Westworld doesn't win every Emmy it was nominated for, I quit." A friend of mine posted "Girl, it's up against The Handmaid's Tale in some cases. Nope." And so, a conflict was born.

Westworld's premiere on HBO had 3.3 million viewers (including the live airing, HBO Go, and HBO Now numbers), which puts it closer to Game of Thrones territory (which had 4.2 million viewers for its premeiere) than Vinyl territory (the now-cancelled show only had 1.4 million viewers for its pilot). People love them their sci-fi and fantasy, huh? And it's a good thing, too, because that shizz is expensive to make.
