In 2022, Zendaya Coleman had a year chockfull of wins. She became the youngest two-time Emmy Award winner in history, for her role as Rue in HBO’s Euphoria. She is also the first Black woman to win an Emmy for Lead Actress in a Drama Series twice. The accolades continued when Coleman won a BET Award for Best Actress and an MTV Movie & TV Award for Best Performance in a Show. But it wasn't exactly all sunshine and roses: Zendaya’s portrayal of Rue in Euphoria drew heavy criticism this year as possibly glorifying addiction. But she spoke out about the importance of Rue’s journey to sobriety throughout the second season, saying in a statement, “I think that if people can go with her through that, and get to the end, and still have hope for her future, and watch her make the changes and steps to heal and humanize her through her sobriety journey and her addiction, then maybe they can extend that to people in real life.”
