At just 24-years-old, Zendaya – star of HBO’s hit drama ‘Euphoria’ – has taken home EMMY gold in the ‘Lead Actress In A Drama Series’ category at the 2020 ceremony.
The win makes her the youngest ever to do so.
See her acceptance speech inside:
“Zendaya made history tonight, not only taking home her first Emmy Award win for HBO’s Euphoria but also becoming the youngest to ever do so in this category. Facing stiff competition, Zendaya bested last year’s winner Jodie Comer, who until today, held the title for the youngest to receive this award, as well as Jennifer Aniston, Olivia Colman, Laura Linney, and Sandra Oh.”
She is only the second Black woman in the ceremony’s 71-year history to be awarded the trophy in this category following Viola Davis’ breakthrough win in 2015 for ABC’s ‘How to Get Away with Murder.’
