Emmy👏award👏winner👏Zendaya👏.

So, the Emmys are looking a tad bit different from past years, but that definitely did not stop Zendaya from dressing in two (2) phenomenal outfits and winning her first freaking Emmy.

ABC

She won for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her performance in Euphoria.

Not only did she win Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series, but she became the YOUNGEST person to win that award ever.

ABC

She's also the second Black actor to win the award after Viola Davis in 2015.

Needless to say, people are ✨thrilled✨:
