Zendaya can finally add a Golden Globe statuette to her name!

The two-time Emmy winner earned her first Golden Globe on Tuesday for her lead role as Rue Bennett in HBO’s Euphoria, taking home the award for Best Actress in a Television Series — Drama.

The 26-year-old actress beat out House of the Dragon‘s Emma D’Arcy, Ozark‘s Laura Linney, The Crown‘s Imelda Staunton and Alaska Daily‘s Hilary Swank.

Zendaya was not in attendance at this year’s award show to collect the honor.

Zendaya’s Golden Globe win on Tuesday rectifies her season 1 snub for Euphoria in 2022, where she and the HBO drama was completely shut out when nominations were released. She’s also up for a Critics’ Choice Television Award this year, where she earned her second Best Actress in a Drama Series nomination for the popular teen series, and could earn her first Screen Actors Guild nomination on Wednesday.

Zendaya made history (again) in September when she won her second Emmy for Euphoria, becoming the youngest two-time lead acting winner for her turn as teenage drug addict Rue. She first won the Emmy in 2020, making history as the youngest actress to ever win the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category.

ET spoke with Zendaya following her history-making Emmy night last year where she praised the production team behind Euphoria and shared her celebration plans.

“It’s so special, it’s such an honor to be acknowledged for something that you’re really proud of. It means it means the world to me,” Zendaya said of the accolade. “I’m so happy for so many of our behind-the-scenes folks getting so much acknowledgment — cinematography and editing — they deserve it so much, they put so much into this show.”

Euphoria was picked up for a third season by HBO last February, with filming expected to begin some time this year.

The 2023 Golden Globes airs live on Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC and Peacock. Stay tuned to ETonline.com for complete Golden Globes coverage, including this year’s winners.
