Zendaya Makes History, Wins Second Emmy Award For "Euphoria"

On Monday, Zendaya won her second Emmy Award for best actress in a drama series for her portrayal as Rue in "Euphoria." Her win made history – she is the only Black woman to win two Emmys in this category.

Her character Rue Bennett is a teen who is recovering from drug addiction. In her acceptance speech, Zendaya, who is also an executive producer on the show, said she hopes it can help heal people. "I want you to know that anyone who has loved a Rue, or feels like you are a Rue, I'm so grateful for your stories and I carry them with me and carry them with her. Thank you so much," she said.

The star first won the award in 2020 for the same role. That time, she also made history, becoming the youngest person to win the Emmy for best actress in a drama at 24 years old.

There are only two other Emmy winners who took home their awards at a younger age. Roxana Zal won a supporting actress Emmy in 1984 at the age of 14 for her role in "Something About Amelia." Kristy McNichol won an Emmy for supporting actress in 1977 at age 15 and again in 1979 at 17 for her role in "Family."

However, because Zendaya's wins were in the lead actress category, she holds the record as the youngest and first black woman to win two Emmys in this category.
