Thandie Newton Thanks God With A Divine Twist At The Emmys

The "Westworld" actress won for best supporting drama actress -- then won over some believers with the line of the night.

Thandie Newton of “Westworld” found religion Monday night at the Emmy Awards ― and it inspired a divine one-liner.

While accepting her supporting drama actress award for playing Maeve on the HBO sci-fi series, she said: “I don’t believe in God, but I’m going to thank her tonight.” 

That got a nice round of applause from the audience ― and in some places on Twitter, too.
