Zendaya’s performance as Rue Bennett in HBO’s hit drama Euphoria is one of the best things we’ve seen on TV in the last few years.
She already won an Emmy for her work in 2020 for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series — and during last night’s Emmys ceremony, she did it again.
What’s more, with last night’s win Zendaya made Emmys history twice.
Zendaya now stands as the youngest-ever person to win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series two times.
She’s also the first Black woman to win twice in the category as well.
After winning, Zendaya gave an unforgettable acceptance speech where she drew from her performance as Rue, and how it’s potentially helped others out there.
“My greatest wish for Euphoria was that it could help heal people,” she said, “and I just want to say thank you to everyone who has shared their story with me.”
“I want you to know that anyone who has loved a Rue or feels like they are Rue, I want you to know that I’m so grateful for your stories and I carry them with me and I carry them with her.”
Congrats to Zendaya! She deserves the world.
