The biggest upset of Emmys 2020 is Zendaya.
The 24-year-old actress won the coveted lead actress award in a drama series for her role as a troubled teen drug addict, Ryu, on the controversial HBO show Euphoria.
She is the youngest and least experienced nominee in this year’s competitive heavy industry striker category, each of whom was more anticipated. Among the nominees were Jennifer Aniston, 51 (“The Morning Show”), Olivia Coleman, 46, (“The Crown”) Laura Linney, 56, (“Ozark”) Sandra O, 49 (“The Murder of Eve”) and Jody Comer 27, (“The Murder of Eve”).
Apart from Comer, who is 27 years old, Zendaya, who started on the Disney Channel, is more than a decade younger than everyone else in this year̵
“I hope all young people,” she said in her acceptance speech.
The actress was clearly shocked and did not expect to win, as the room full of family members behind her was dancing and screaming.
“Euphoria” has been renewed for a second season.
