Zendaya Coleman won her second Emmy Award for a drama series Euphoria at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards held at Microsoft Theater on Monday night in Los Angeles.
Zendaya, 26, becomes the first biracial/mixed race woman to win an Emmy for lead actress in a drama series twice, and the youngest ever 2-time winner of any Emmy Award in history.
She looked elegant in a black gown designed by Valentino.
Kenan Thompson joked, “Zendaya just turned 26, happy birthday. 26 is a weird age in Hollywood. Young enough to play a high school student, but too old to date Leonardo DiCaprio.”
He was referring to the 47-year-old Oscar winner’s preference for only dating models and starlets who are 25 and under.
