Zendaya has made Emmys nomination history again with her work on HBO’s Euphoria.

The Emmy-winning actress becomes the youngest person of color to be nominated twice in the best actress in a drama series category. For 2022, she is nominated in both the best lead actress in a drama series and best drama series categories, with the series honor coming for her role as an executive producer on the show’s second season (as she did not serve as an exec producer on its first).

The Euphoria actress and EP made history in 2020 as the youngest woman to win an Emmy for best actress in a drama series. She beat out fellow nominees Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh of Killing Eve, Ozark’s Laura Linney, The Crown star Olivia Colman and The Morning Show’s Jennifer Aniston for her portrayal of Rue, a teen with a substance abuse disorder in HBO’s hit Euphoria.

In the best actress category for 2022, she is nominated alongside Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Laura Linney (Ozark), Melanie Lynskey (Yellowjackets), Sandra Oh (Killing Eve) and Reese Witherspoon (The Morning Show). Euphoria‘s fellow best drama series nominees include Better Call Saul, Ozark, Severance, Squid Game, Stranger Things, Succession and Yellowjackets.

Zendaya received an additional two nominations for the 2022 Emmys in the best original music and lyrics category for “I’m Tired” as well as “Elliot’s Song.”

The 2022 Emmy Award nominations were announced on Tuesday morning. The Emmys are set to air live at 8-11 p.m. ET/5-8 p.m. PT across the country on NBC on Sept. 12 and stream live for the first time on Peacock.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Zendaya was the youngest two-time acting nominee in Emmys history.
