I know that the Drama Lead Actress category is filled with heavy hitters, but I don’t think anyone has the passion behind them that Zendaya does. It really makes me think that she has a chance to pull an upset off. Do y’all think so, too?July 30, 2020 at 8:46 am #1203615036
I still have Laura and Jennifer battling it out, but it all being white winners that I’m predicting despite what the fields look like doesn’t sit right with me. I think she has a far better chance next year, especially since I think Euphoria could get into drama series, but the passion she got on is something far greater than young winners Comer and Maslanay pulled clearly. Not to mention, I don’t think Aniston will win if Billy does and Laura is weakened with both Janet and Tom snubbed. So, I’m predicting her to be in 3rd to 4th place right now at worst.July 30, 2020 at 9:13 am #1203615098
Yes. I’m tempted to have her as my number 2 behind Aniston.

She’s on a teen drama that’s been criticized as being too sexualizing of its female characters and too graphic in its depiction of substance abuse, so no, she’s not winning. This is a three-way race between Olivia Colman, Laura Linney, and Jennifer Aniston.
Plus, if another teen drama like Stranger Things couldn’t win any of its acting nominations, then what makes people think Euphoria can?July 30, 2020 at 12:06 pm #1203615727
yes she does. hbo didn’t even focus on euphoria, the hype for the show happened a year ago, zendaya received no nominations in precursors outside of CC and this is a teen show we’re talking about. i think her getting in with all those barriers aside means she has some sort of passion. not to mention twitter went CRAZY over previous winners like rami, jharrel and jodie getting nominated and this year she was the most talked about on there. it’s also worth noting that a lot of black people in the industry were thrilled over her getting in too (+ she’s the only black nominee with davis being snubbed)
so in short i certainly think she’s in it to win.July 30, 2020 at 12:16 pm #1203615751
I think everyone but Comer has a chance in that field.July 30, 2020 at 12:31 pm #1203615786
IDK, it won’t be a good look for the Emmy’s if all the acting categories went to white people this year in particular.July 30, 2020 at 12:33 pm #1203615791
I dunno, the passion could pull her through but this race is probably still Linney v. Aniston. It’s definitely possible, though.July 30, 2020 at 12:36 pm #1203615795
The fact that she didn’t crack any precursor and beated powerhouse names like Elisabeth Moss, Viola Davis and Nicole Kidman among others for the nomination is really impressive. I dare to say she’s #3 only behind Linney and Aniston given the strenght of their shows, but yes she can upset. What I’m curious is Euphoria’s future awards-wise with second season though.July 30, 2020 at 12:38 pm #1203615803This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.July 30, 2020 at 12:41 pm #1203615806
Of course she has a chance she is 4 in my prediction because i dont think older voters will vote for her but who knowJuly 30, 2020 at 12:45 pm #1203615817
She probably has a very slim chance of winning, but she would undoubtedly get my vote. Just kinda stomps all over her competition (save for perhaps Comer).July 30, 2020 at 12:56 pm #1203615834
She absolutely can. None of the other contenders are gonna get a fraction of the press (buzz) as Zendaya in the days/week/months to come. She’s also deserving: there’s this small moment where it flashes to her face in the season finale right as *spoiler* is getting on the train that absolutely shatters me, a performance that has stuck with me for basically a whole year now.

Interesting to hear that you like Comer when you usually seem to prefer much more naturalistic performancesJuly 30, 2020 at 1:04 pm #1203615844
The hurdle was getting nominated, so in that respect, yes, Zendaya is very much in this race. However, I imagine that many Emmy voters who wouldn’t know Zendaya from a needle in a haystack will now catch up to “Euphoria” before voting starts and see what an awful mess that show is. To say she’s the best element of it is faint praise, so it’s a double-edged sword. Battling against the deficits of the series and doing stunning work in spite of that is clearly noteworthy. But will her age, the graphic nature of the series, and being a “teen” show be something that voters will want to rubberstamp? It’s not Drama Series, I know, but I think some voters still think this way. The reality is, the next generation of contenders are now emerging, and these dying awards shows need the next generations to keep this ship afloat. The Zendaya’s, the Shira Haas’s, the Jharrel Jerome’s, the Paul Mescal’s, the Asante Blackk’s, the Joey King’s, the Eliza Scalen’s, etc. It’s time. But just focusing on lead actress drama, I think there are other narratives going on in the race for the win, but Zendaya is a spoiler, at least.Not now
