With her performance as Rue Benett in Euphoria, Zendaya took home the Emmy for “Lead Actress in a Drama” on Tuesday. This is Zendaya’s second win at the Emmy. For Euphoria, she received her first victory in 2020.

Zendaya has received a total of four Emmy nominations for this year.

She is also nominated for two nominations for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for the songs “Elliot’s Song” and “I’m Tired,” both of which were featured on “Euphoria” season two, which is nominated in the Outstanding Drama category. She is also nominated for “Lead Actress in a Drama Series” and for her work as an executive producer on “Euphoria” season 2.

She made history as Rue in “Euphoria” in 2020, when she was 24, becoming the youngest lead actress drama winner and the second black woman to do so, after Viola Davis for “How to Get Away With Murder.”

Euphoria is based on the Israeli television series of the same name and was created by Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin of HOT; it follows a group of students in high school in the town of East Highland, including Zendaya’s 17-year-old drug addict Rue, as they navigate issues of identity, trauma, drugs, family, friendships, love, and sex.

The South Korean won for portraying Seong Gi-hun, the protagonist of the well-liked Netflix series, in a state of escalating desperation.
Hwang Dong-hyuk, the show’s creator, won the award for best drama series director, becoming the first Asian to do so.

For the second year, Ted Lasso was named best comedy series, and Succession was named outstanding drama.

In his victory speech at the year’s most prestigious award ceremony for the US television industry, the British creator of the drama, Jesse Armstrong, made fun of the monarchy.

For his portrayal of ambitious outsider Tom Wambsgans, which he described as a “bonkers gift of a role,” Matthew Macfadyen, another Succession cast member, won best supporting drama actor.
Cox was defeated by Lee from Squid Game, failing to repeat her best actor triumph from the previous year.

Along with Zendaya, Amanda Seyfried, Michael Keaton, Julia Garner, and Jean Smart, fellow Brit Brett Goldstein won the night’s other acting awards.

Jason Sudeikis, who plays the titular football coach in the movie Ted Lasso, won best leading comedy actor, building on his win in 2021.

His co-star Goldstein, who plays Lasso’s assistant coach Roy Kent, also won for best supporting actor in a comedy series, mirroring his success.

Sheryl Lee Ralph’s win for best supporting actress in a comedy brought some success to Abbott Elementary, a well-liked newcomer mockumentary set in a US elementary school. She is the first black actress to win in this category since 1987 and portrays the strict teacher Barbara Howard. After accepting her award, she sang the first few verses of Dianne Reeves’ song Endangered Species before delivering an eloquent speech.

Quinta Brunson, who co-starred with her and created the program, took home the prize for comedy series writing.

The drama is based on the relationship between Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, Pam & Tommy, and the hotel satire White Lotus competed against each other for the most awards, winning 10, including the best-limited series.

In addition, Murray Bartlett received the best-supporting actor award for White Lotus, and Jennifer Coolidge received the best-supporting actress award.

The Dropout, which is based on the true story of the disgraced biotech entrepreneur, won Seyfried the award for best lead actress in a limited series or anthology for her portrayal of Elizabeth Holmes.

Garner once again won the best-supporting actress prize for her portrayal of Ruth in the Netflix crime drama Ozark. Like his Golden Globe victory earlier this year, Keaton won his first Emmy for his portrayal of a small-town doctor in the opioid crisis drama Dopesick.
