In 2020, Zendaya made history when she took home the award for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for Euphoria at just 24 years old, making her the youngest woman ever to snag the prize. This year Zendaya is officially the youngest two-time lead actress nominee at 26 years old, having been nominated for outstanding lead actress yet again—she was just 25 when the nominations were announced in July 2022. 

To make her achievements even more historic, Zendaya is officially the youngest woman to ever be nominated in a producing category as an executive producer of Euphoria season two. She’s also nominated for her contribution to two songs featured during the season, “I’m Tired” and “Elliot’s Song.” Per Collider, Zendaya is now the first Black woman to be nominated for songwriting and acting in the same year. Yes, your girl is now a five-time Emmy nominee before she was even required to ditch her parents’ health insurance.
