Zendaya became the youngest Emmy winner for her role in “Euphoria”

Actress Zendaya won Jodie Comer twice at the Emmy Awards last weekend. She not only received a statuette for the HBO series “Euphoria”, but also became the youngest actress ever to receive the award for “Best Actress in a Drama Series.” Earlier this achievement belonged to Comer, who received an Emmy last year. In addition to Jodie Comer, Zendaya surpassed other finalists in the fight for the award: Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show), Olivia Coleman (The Crown), Laura Linney (Ozark), and Sandra Oh (Killing Eve).

In her speech at the awards ceremony, Zendaya said:

This is a really strange time to celebrate, but I want to say that young people have hope. I know our show doesn’t always seem like a great example of this, but there is hope. I thank all my colleagues.

The series “Euphoria” tells about the 17-year-old drug addict Ru Bennett (Zendaya), who returned from a rehabilitation clinic and is trying to find her place in life. The series is based on the 2012 Israeli TV series of the same name. At the moment, work is underway on the second season, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the release date of the new season is unknown.
