The Euphoria star bagged Outstanding Lead Actress In a Drama Series for her role as Rue, edging out industry veterans Jennifer Anniston, Olivia Colman and Sandra Oh.
HBO’s Watchmen dominated front row nominations, snagging a whopping 11 awards, including Outstanding Limited Series, Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie (Regina King). Schitt’s Creek swept the comedy series categories with major wins not limited to Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress in a Comedy Series – Eugene Levy and and Catherine O’Hara, and Supporting Actor and Actress in a Comedy Series –Dan Levy and Annie Murphy.
Other big winners included Succession for Outstanding Drama Series and Lead Actor (Jeremy Strong), and RuPaul’s Drag Race for Outstanding Reality/Competition series.
