By Duchess Magazine

Well you can add Emmy winner to her growing list of titles!

Zendaya, 24, on Sunday won her very first Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her work on the much beloved teen drama Euphoria.

The HBO drama follows the troubled life of 17-year-old Rue, a drug addict fresh from rehab with no plans to stay clean.

Zendaya in her acceptance speech thanked the TV Academy and expressed appreciation towards her fellow nominees, her family, HBO, cast and crew as well as the show’s creator, Sam Levinson, saying, “I appreciate you so much, you’re my family. I’m so grateful that you trusted me with your story, and I hope I can continue to do you proud.”

In the press room, following her win, she reflected on the moment, saying, “I don’t usually cry. I got through it without letting it take over completely, but it was obviously a very emotional moment. I still can’t believe it myself, it’s pretty crazy.”

On winning an Emmy amid the chaos of the present year, she added,”I’m just grateful for moments like this, moments where we can have joy. It’s moments like this [that] we really have to all hold onto and cherish. I definitely felt this wrapping of love around me as I was sitting here. I’m just trying to take it all in and be grateful for all the moments we do have of joy and happiness.”

Zendaya beat out Jennifer Aniston, Jodie Comer, Olivia Colman, Sandra Oh, and Laura Linney, Ew.com reports.
