If there is a rising star in the Hollywood industry that requires the attention of the public eye, then one of them has to go to Zendaya. From making a name for herself in the industry by starring alongside Tom Holland as MJ in Marvel Studio’s Spider-Man series to going on and being starred in her own highly popular HBO original series Euphoria and all other major projects that she has her hands in, it’s safe to assume that she has a bright future ahead.
And as if to show her gratitude to her fans and supporters, she absolutely killed it with her role as Rue Bennet in the HBO Original, she won this year’s Golden Globe Award in Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama category, making this her first-ever Golden Globe Award. As she and the crew of the show celebrate this victory, many believe that her win was not the right choice by the appraisal council of the awards.
The Public Believes There Were More Suitable Nominees Other Than Zendaya
With such an illustrious career in such a short time in the industry, Zendaya proved that there is nothing that can beat you when you put your heart and soul into your work. Being the supporting pillar to Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in the MCU’s Spider-Man series, playing the role of Anne Wheeler in The Greatest Showman, and making heads turn in HBO’s Euphoria is not as simple a task that the actress makes it to be.
And with her absolutely stunning performance in the HBO Original film, she has been awarded a Golden Globe Award. As the popularity of the show keeps skyrocketing with each subsequent season, the performance by Shake It Up star is also getting better like a fine wine. With this award becoming her first Golden Globe, she promises to get better and better with each episode of every season for the foreseeable future of the show.

But it seems like many are not happy with this decision, as the public gets divided on the internet about whether or not she deserved the award when there were better nominees in the final round.

With nominees from great shows like Emma D’Arcy from House of the Dragon, Laura Linney from Ozark, and Imelda Staunton from The Crown, it shows how fans may be divided over the win.
