Zendaya won for her role as Rue Bennett whose childhood trauma led to her recurrent drug addiction. The show just scored a Season 3 renewal in February after the Season 2 premiere on Jan. 9 attracted 14 million total viewers at HBO and HBO Max.
During her acceptance speech, Zendaya, thanked the “Euphoria” cast and crew as well as the millions of viewers who have shared with her their stories of addiction.
“My greatest wish for ‘Euphoria’ was that it could help heal people, and I just want to say thank you to everyone who shared their story with me,” Zendaya said according to Rolling Stone. “I want you to know that anyone who has loved a Rue or feels like you are a Rue, I’m so grateful for your stories and I carry them with me and carry them with her. Thank you so much.”
