Emmys 2022: Zendaya Scores Three Nominations for ‘Euphoria’ Season 2
Zendaya scored not one, but three nods for her work on Euphoria season 2, when JB Smoove and Melissa Fumero announced the full list of nominees for the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards on Tuesday.
The actress, who previously won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her turn as Rue, was recognized again in the category, making her the youngest two-time lead acting nominee.
She also was nominated twice in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category. One is for the song, “Elliot's Song,” along with composer Labrinth and songwriter Muzhda Zemar-McKenzie and the other is for “I’m Tired,” with Labrinth and creator Sam Levinson. (Labrinth previously won the same category for the song, “All for Us,” which was heavily featured in season 1.)
Zendaya took to Instagram to celebrate the nominations, writing, "Making this show with this cast and crew of the most incredibly talented people that I get the privilege of learning from everyday has been a highlight of my life. 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!"
She added: "Thanks to everyone who connected with our show, it is an honor to share it with you. Thank you @samlev for everything you do, this show is what it is because of your heart, and thank you to @labrinth @marcellrev @hbo @a24 for being the best creative collaborators. Lastly thank you to the @televisionacademy for this incredible acknowledgment. We out here Emmy nominated again y’all!!!"
