Euphoria and Sydney Sweeney win big
The HBO hit show Euphoria scored 6 awards, including Best Show and Best Fight between Alexa Demie’s Maddy and Sydney Sweeney‘s Cassie. Sydney Sweeney accepted the awards on the cast’s behalf. During her acceptance speech, Sydney even referenced her iconic line from her character this season.
“I wish Alexa was here so that she could thank the amazing fans that we have because you all are so incredible,” she said. “But I have to be honest, Maddie might have gotten the last punch, but Cassie has never, ever been happier.”

“I did want to take the time to say a massive thank-you to all the fans around the world who voted for Spider-Man: No Way Home and voted for me. To be part of that film, to share that film with you, to be a part of the solidarity that was built up around the world is honestly a dream come true.
