September 21, 2020
Euphoria actress,Zendaya is now the youngest actress to win an Emmy for lead actress in a Drama Series. Zendaya received her award and during her virtual interview backstage,she said;
“It means so much to me,” Zendaya said during her virtual backstage interview (her family at that point was standing to the side, trying to contain their excitement). “Every single woman in that category I obviously admire immensely.”
She added, “Just to be mentioned in the category at all was something — and just to have them support me really filled my heart.”
“For me, I’ve always been very grateful for all the people who connect to Rue or feel that, through the show, they are able to attach words or find themselves within a scene or a moment where they otherwise felt alone” to have that feeling that there are people that feel what [Rue] feels is huge and very important…she’s very important to me.”
This must be a great achievement for the actress as she beat Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh, Ozark’s Laura Linney, The Crown’s Olivia Colman and The Morning Show’s Jennifer Aniston. That’s huge deal.
