Zendaya Celebrates Her Emmy Nominations with a Heartfelt Post on Instagram

Almost two years ago, Zendaya made history as the youngest actress to win Best Actress in a Drama at the Emmys. She took home the gold statue for her outstanding performance on the HBO series, Euphoria. And now, the young actress is making history (once again) by snagging an acting and producer nomination at this year’s Emmys.

The complete list of the 2022 Emmy Awards nominees has finally been released and the popular teen drama has garnered a total of 16 nominations. The show is nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, making Zendaya—who serves as the show’s executive producer—the youngest woman ever to be nominated for an Emmy in this particular category (*claps*).

To celebrate the momentous milestone, she shared a heartfelt message to the Euphoria cast and crew on Instagram. Alongside a rare snapshot of her Euphoria character Rue, she wrote in the caption, “Making this show with this cast and crew of the most incredibly talented people that I get the privilege of learning from every day has been a highlight of my life.”

She continued, “I’m so proud to work beside you and CONGRATULATIONS! I don’t have the words to express the love and gratitude I feel right now, all I can do is say thank you with all my heart! Thanks to everyone who connected with our show, it is an honor to share it with you.”

The Spider-Man: No Way Home actress ended the note by saying, “We out here Emmy nominated again y’all!!!” Zendaya isn’t the only star on Euphoria to score an Emmy nomination. Other castmates like Sydney Sweeney, Martha Kelly, Colman Domingo and Dominic Fike have all snagged a nomination this year.

Congrats on your double Emmy noms, Zendaya!
