Zendaya is 'Overwhelmed' By Multiple Emmy Nominations

Zendaya is reacting to her multiple 2022 Emmy Award nominations!

The 25-year-old Euphoria star landed her second Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series nomination, making history by being the youngest two-time nominee.

She also picked up a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series, making history again for being the youngest female producer. The show as a whole picked up a total of 16 nominations.

Check out how she reacted inside…

“I’m overwhelmed,” Zendaya told Vanity Fair. “It’s absolutely insane. The show obviously means so much to me and so much to everyone who makes it. People put their absolute heart and soul into this, and I am so lucky to share this with all of them. I’ve already talked to so many people on FaceTime, and I have a lot more texts to send out. But I am so proud of our team and the work we do together. I’m very, very proud.”

In addition, Zendaya also picked up two nominations for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for the songs “Elliot’s Song” and “I’m Tired” with Labrinth.

“I had no idea! The intention was just to work with Lab in a deeper sense, and he always creates such a warm environment to collaborate,” she shared with VF. “Whenever we made things on set, it was just about the goal of enhancing the emotional journey of these characters and how to tell the story through another medium—so yeah, I had no idea I would be a part of this today. It’s very cool.”

Also receiving nominations for their work on Euphoria were Sydney Sweeney (Outstanding Supporting Actress), Colman Domingo (Outstanding Guest Actor) and Martha Kelly (Outstanding Guest Actress), who are all first time Emmy nominees!

“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!” she wrote on her Instagram page.

“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!
