Awards season high. Following the news of the 2022 Emmy Awards nominations in July, numerous Euphoria cast members reacted to the critical acclaim their show received.
“Making this show with this cast and crew of the most incredibly talented people that I get the privilege of learning from everyday has been a highlight of my life. I’m so proud to work beside you and CONGRATULATIONS! I don’t have the words to express the love and gratitude I feel right now, all I can do is say thank you with all my heart,” Zendaya wrote via Instagram at the time.
The Spider-Man: No Way Home actress received four nominations for her work on the show: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, two separate nods for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for “Elliot’s Song” and “I’m Tired,” as well as a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series.
The Greatest Showman performer, who stars as Rue in the critically-acclaimed teen drama, made history in 2020 when she became the youngest Emmy winner to score the lead actress in a drama series trophy. She’s also the youngest person in Emmys history to be nominated as a producer.
The Disney alum’s costars Sydney Sweeney, Colman Domingo and Martha Kelly are also up for honors on TV’s biggest night. Sweeney, who portrays Cassie on the drama series, is nominated for supporting actress, while Domingo (Ali) and Kelly (Laurie) are both up for the guest actor and actress categories, respectively.
In addition to playing Cassie the popular HBO drama, Sweeney is also nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series for The White Lotus as Olivia Mossbacher.
“It’s an honor to know that both Olivia and Cassie have connected with so many. I’m so proud of both these shows and grateful to everybody that’s been a part of them, the Sharp Objects alum shared via Instagram when she received the nominations in July. “But most importantly mom, I love you, we did it through the ups and downs!🥺♥️🥰 thank you thank you!!”
Domingo, for his part, detailed how he found out about the news after wrapping The Color Purple musical movie in Atlanta over the summer.
“It was my last day and I watched the nominations when it happened,” the If Beale Street Could Talk actor shared with the Los Angeles Times in August about the July day his nomination was announced. “I actually shed a tear. That’s not usually my style, but I felt like there was so much that had so many people rallying for me. I felt like I was, like, whoa, I didn’t want to let them down, in a way. That’s a strange thing to say, but I guess that’s what happened.”
