Talking of youthful — for the next yr in a row, Euphoria’s Zendaya has defended her title as the youngest Emmy acting nominee. She is also now the youngest creating nominee. Succession, with 14 nods, set a new file for acting nominations, though Saturday Night time Stay remains the most-nominated Emmy exhibit in history (nine new nods this year bring SNL’s historical full to 315).
