Zendaya praised her co-stars and fans for supporting her along the way in an emotional Instagram post today, despite not being to attend the Golden Globes last night to claim her trophy.
Her portrayal of Rue in HBO’s Euphoria earned the actress her first nomination for the prestigious awards event, and she went on to win in the category of Best Television Actress in a Drama Series tonight.
While receiving the prize on her behalf, presenter Jay Ellis made reference to her absence. He added, “Y’all, she’s working, she’s busy.” “It’s a good thing.”
But in a touching Instagram post today, she thanked her costars and fans for helping her get where she is today.
“I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to be there tonight, but I just wanted to say thank you to @goldenglobes for this incredible honor,” she wrote next to a black-and-white still of herself from the show. “Thank you to my Euphoria family, without you, none of this is possible,” she continued. “Lastly, thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has allowed Rue into theirs. I think everyone knows how much she means to me, but the fact that she can mean something to someone else is a gift. I’m honestly at a loss for words as I type this, all I can say is thank you thank you thank you. Goodnight♥️.”
Additionally, Zendaya commended the other women nominated in the category, including Hilary Swank (Alaska Daily), Laura Linney (Ozark), Imelda Staunton (The Crown), and Emma D’Arcy (House of the Dragon), stating, “It is a privilege to be named beside you.”
Fans are also aware of the actress’ recent schedule, which included extensive location filming for Dune: Part Two in Budapest, Abu Dhabi, Jordan, and Italy. Filming on the project apparently ended last month.
At an FYC event in Los Angeles, where she was joined by her Euphoria co-stars, was her most recent outing in the public.
