Zendaya’s mom said that she had to “name drop” her daughter in order to get past security and reach the actor’s table at the Emmys on Monday.
On Monday, Zendaya won her second Emmy for her lead role in the hit HBO series “Euphoria,” becoming the youngest actress to win two Emmys, and the first Black woman to win the Emmy for lead actress in a drama series twice.
On Tuesday, Zendaya’s mother, Claire Stoermer, revealed she was at the event and hugged her daughter before the announcement of her win. Sharing a photo of them hugging on her Instagram story, Stoermer went on to explain how she was nearly stopped from approaching her daughter’s table.
“Made my way to Z before they awarded her the Emmy and gave her the biggest hug and said… breathe!!!” she wrote. “The man who tried to stop me said ‘where are your credentials?’ I said ‘I’m Zendaya’s mom’ and kept walking!! hahaha! I never name drop like that but I have to do it!”
Zendaya’s mom also gave a shout out to Sam Levinson, the creator of “Euphoria” and his wife Ashley Levinson for looking after her daughter.
She captioned a story post of Zendaya with the “Euphoria” crew: “I love this group of people. When Z is working on Euphoria, I don’t worry about her! @samlev00 and @ashlevinson thank you!!”
Stoermer was also mentioned in Zendaya’s speech on Monday after winning the award.
“Thank you to the Academy, thank you to my friends and family, some of which are here tonight,” Zendaya said before laughing as her mother cheered.
“Euphoria” picked up six Emmys this year for the show’s second season, including outstanding guest actor in a drama series for Colman Domingo.
The show has already been renewed for a third season.
