Zendaya Again Sets Emmy Record With ‘Euphoria’ As Youngest Two-Time Acting Winner, Thanks “Anyone Who Has Loved A Rue, Or Feels Like A Rue”
Zendaya, who starred in the HBO teen drama series Euphoria, has once more made history at the Emmys. She won her second Drama Actress trophy today, making her the youngest actress to ever win the award twice. (You can watch her whole acceptance speech above.)
The actress thanked the cast and crew of Euphoria after saying that she was “proud to be beside” the other “great actresses” in her category. “Thank you for creating such a secure environment to do this extremely challenging event. I adore you all so much, Zendaya said. “I would want to thank the Academy as well as my friends and family, some of whom are present tonight. Sam [Levinson] was kind enough to share Rue with me. Thank you for believing in me, even in moments where I didn’t believe in myself.”
Zendaya continued, thanking individuals who have shared their tales with her in the spirit of her character’s, saying that her “biggest goal for Euphoria was that it could help heal people.” Anyone who has loved a Rue or feels like a Rue should know that she is extremely appreciative of their experiences and that she carries them with her as well. I appreciate it, very much.
In addition, if Euphoria wins the award for Outstanding Drama Series, Zendaya, 26, who is an executive producer on the programme, might shortly break the record for youngest producer winner. While she also this year landed a pair of noms in the category of Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics, as the co-lyricist of Euphoria‘s tunes “Elliot’s Song” and “I’m Tired,” she and her fellow noms Labrinth, Muzhda Zemar-McKenzie and Sam Levinson lost out in that arena to Schmigadoon‘s Cinco Paul.
Zendaya previously broke the record for the youngest Drama Actress when she won her first Emmy in 2020 for her starring role in Euphoria. The actress outperformed several Emmy nominees this year, including Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh from Killing Eve, Laura Linney from Ozark, Reese Witherspoon from The Morning Show, and Melanie Lynskey from Yellowjackets.
Based on the Israeli series of the same name, which was created by Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin from HOT, Euphoria follows a group of high school students in the town of East Highland, including Zendaya’s 17-year-old drug addict Rue, through their experiences of identity, trauma, drugs, family, friendships, love and sex. The show created, written, directed and exec produced by Levinson returned for its second season in January and was renewed for a third the following month, this time around establishing itself as the most-watched in HBO’s history, behind only the epic fantasy series Game of Thrones.
