Zendaya Shares Photos After Winning Emmy Award

Zendaya looked glamorous in a billowing black Valentino gown as she sat down on the street.

Zendaya recently made history on Monday night as she became the youngest two-time Emmy Award winner for acting. While the actress delivered a very emotional acceptance speech, she was still on cloud nine! Euphoria’s actress showed off her new award in a beaming photo shared on her Instagram. The actress took home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series gong for her performance as addiction-plagued teen Rue Bennett in HBO’s Euphoria.

Zendaya looked glamorous in a billowing black Valentino gown as she sat down on the street outside of the Microsoft Theatre in LA, admitting her ‘feet hurt’ after the ceremony. Alongside the stunning snap, she penned, “When your feet hurt but you got a whole lot to smile about. Still absolutely beaming, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Zendaya looked stunning in a voluminous half-up, a half-down hairstyle that was secured in place with a black satin headband. She delivered an emotional acceptance speech which touched on her ‘greatest wish’ for the coming-of-age drama, as well as how the vulnerability of Euphoria fans has inspired her on and off the screen.

The former Disney Channel star, who appeared to be holding back tears as she looked out on the crowd of her peers, said, “My greatest wish for Euphoria was that it could help heal people. I want you to know that anyone who has loved a Rue or feels like they are a Rue, I want you to know that I am so grateful for your stories.”

Zendaya finished off the touching speech by saying: ‘And I carry them with me, and I carry them with her.’ Along with being the youngest-ever two-time honoree, she is also the first Black woman in history to take home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award twice, as reported by Variety.

Zendaya walked away with her first Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy in 2020 for her work in Euphoria’s first season. The edgy teen drama, which premiered on HBO in June 2019, follows Rue (Zendaya) and other students at her high school as ‘they navigate love and friendships in a world of drugs, s*x, trauma and social media.’
