Zendaya Becomes Youngest Emmy Winner For Lead Actress In Drama

Euphoria star Zendaya made Emmys history as the youngest actress to win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, at 24 years old. She broke last year’s record of age 26 set by Killing Eve star Jodie Comer. Zendaya is also the second Black actress to take home that Emmy title after Violas Davis won for her role in How To Get Away With Murder in 2015.

“I know this feels like a really weird time to be celebrating,” Zendaya said. “But I just want to say that there is hope in the young people out there. I know that our TV show doesn’t always feel like a great example of that, but there is hope in the young people. And I just want to say to all my peers out there doing the work in the streets, I see you, I admire you and I thank you.”

Zendaya took home the trophy over Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Sandra Oh (Killing Eve), Laura Linney (Ozark), Olivia Colman (The Crown), and Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show).

Euphoria was nominated for five Emmys at this year’s ceremony: Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score), Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics, Outstanding Music Supervision, Outstanding Contemporary Costumes, and Outstanding Contemporary Makeup (Non-Prosthetic).
