Last year, Scarlett Johansson ran away with the Fan Favorite Actress award by tallying nearly a third of all the votes cast, and we weren’t certain anything similar would happen this year, just because it seemed the competition was too good. Maria Bakalova came out of nowhere to stun everyone in Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm; Carey Mulligan, Frances McDormand, and Viola Davis all powered films to potential Oscar glory; and Anya Taylor-Joy became a household name with a trio of titles, including the massively popular The Queen’s Gambit.
As it turns out, Zendaya actually managed to thwart them all by matching Scarlett Johansson’s impressive win last year. The star of HBO’s Euphoria became the youngest winner of the Lead Actress Emmy for her role in the series and starred in the filmed-in-quarantine drama Malcolm & Marie, earning 31% of all votes in our poll.
The order below reflects the number of total votes cast for each actor by users in a poll that ran on RT from March 10 to April 13.
The singer-turned-actress not only found time during quarantine to make a movie (Malcolm & Marie), but she also became the youngest Emmy winner in the Lead Actress category for her outstanding work on HBO’s Euphoria.
