The 74th annual Emmy Awards have concluded last night (12 Sept) , with numerous repeat winners and a few surprises. Zendaya made her mark in the record books as she became the youngest two-time Emmy Award winner in acting history.
The actress, 26, won the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as the addicted girl Rue Bennett in HBO’s Euphoria. ‘My greatest wish for Euphoria was that it could help heal people,’ she says. Earlier in the show, Succession may have won Outstanding Drama Series, but Lee Jung-jae of Squid Game beat over two Roy men (Jeremy Strong and Brian Cox) to become the first foreign-language actor to win Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama. The Netflix blockbuster received six Emmy nominations in total, including Outstanding Directing for Hwang Dong-hyuk.
During Monday’s Kenan Thompson-hosted gala, Apple TV+’s “Ted Lasso” won best comedy series for a second year running. HBO Max’s “The White Lotus” won best limited series, and HBO’s “Succession” won best drama series.
