After a monumental win in the 2020 Emmys as the youngest recipient of the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award, it looks like Zendaya is at again with another record-breaking nomination for her work on HBO’s Euphoria. Entertainment Weekly confirms that her role as recovering teenage drug addict Rue Bennett in Euphoria earned her a second Outstanding Lead Actress nomination, which makes her the youngest two-time Emmy nominee in the category at the age of 25.
Euphoria received 16 nominations total – one of the nominations is for Outstanding Drama Series. Since Zendaya is an executive producer on Euphoria, this makes her the youngest woman ever to be nominated for producing at the Emmys.
Euphoria also stars Hunter Schafer, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Angus Cloud, Maude Apatow, Storm Reid, and Barbie Ferreira. Other nominations for the series include Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Sydney Sweeney, Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for Martha Kelly, and Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for Colman Domingo.
