Zendaya made history at the 2020 Emmys Sunday night (Sept. 20), and everyone from Drake and Chloe x Halle to Kehlani took to social media to celebrate her groundbreaking win.

"@Zendaya @euphoria it was a LOCK...congratulations," Drake wrote on his Instagram Story following Zendaya's adorable at-home acceptance surrounded by her cheering loved ones.

Chloe x Halle also shared the love on Twitter, tweeting, "YESS!!!! @Zendaya omg we’re in tears over here. SO WELL DESERVED," while Sarah Paulson quoted part of the star's heartfelt acceptance speech in her tweet, writing, "'Hope in the young people' YESSSSSSS @Zendaya."

Kehlani, meanwhile, could barely contain her excitement over her fellow Oakland, Calif. native's win, exclaiming, "I KNOW THATS RIGHT OAKLAND CALIFORNIA @Zendaya...THATS MY MF SISTER YUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" with a number of glimmering star emojis.

Nominated for her starring turn as Rue Bennett in HBO's Euphoria, the 24-year-old became the youngest person to ever win the award for best actress in a drama series, beating out the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Olivia Colman, Sandra Oh, Laura Linney and Jodie Comer.

"Still don’t really have any words....feeling so much love right now, thank you," Zendaya also tweeted the next day (Sept. 21).
