The night belonged to Zendaya who managed to grab her first Emmy at the young age of 24. The actress won the award in the Outstanding Lead Actress Drama category for Euphoria. With her big achievement tonight, the actress has created history by becoming the youngest ever actor to bag an Emmy trophy. The Spider-Man: Homecoming actress is already a popular name on social media and her big win has certainly added a few extra names in her long list of admirers.

Check out her Speech
— Good Morning America (@GMA) September 21, 2020
In her winning speech albeit virtually, Zendaya thanked her family and the Euphoria team for her big win. She further added, "I know this feels like a really weird time to be celebrating, but I just want to say that there is hope in the young people out there. I know that our TV show doesn’t always feel like a great example of that but there is hope in the young people. And I just want to say to all my peers out there doing the work in the streets, I see you, I admire you, I thank you, and yeah, thank you so, so much! This is—whoa, okay, thank you!"
That was one sweet speech that came in straight from her heart.
