"In just a few short years, Zendaya has captured audiences' attention with her compassionate performance on the small screen as Rue in Euphoria and has drawn audiences in on the big screen with her performances in Spider-Man: Far From Home, The Greatest Showman and Dune," Neuhauser said.

While the nod will honor Zendaya's movie performances, she's had significant success in the awards circuit recently thanks to her small-screen roles.
