Zendaya explains reason for skipping Golden Globes ceremony after last years backlash

Zendaya has spoken out about her absence from last night’s Golden Globes after the star won another award for her role of Rue in Euphoria.

The Dune star, 26, has won a string of prestigious awards in recent years, but last night marked her first Golden Globe win.

Despite this, she failed to attend the star-studded affair and took to Instagram to send her apologies – but didn’t give a reason as to why she didn’t go.

“I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to be there tonight, but I just wanted to say thank you to @goldenglobes for this incredible honor,” she wrote alongside a black and white snap of her character Rue.

“To my fellow nominees, it is a privilege to be named beside you, I admire you all deeply. Thank you to my Euphoria family, without you, none of this is possible. Lastly, thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has allowed Rue into theirs.

“I think everyone knows how much she means to me, but the fact that she can mean something to someone else is a gift. I’m honestly at a loss for words as I type this, all I can say is thank you thank you thank you. Goodnight.”

The star has since been inundated with congratulatory messages, with Euphoria co-star Maude Aptow leading them.

“CONGRATULATIONS,” she wrote alongside a string of heart emojis, as Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio posted two praise-hand emojis.

“So well deserved!!!!” added Adwoa Aboah, while the late Kobe Bryant’s daughter Natalia said: “congratulations!!!!” and labelled Zendaya as “the best”.

Another Golden Globe winner to be absent from last night’s festivities is Amanda Seyfried, who won Best Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or TV Movie for The Dropout.

As she wasn’t there, presenters Mo Brings Plenty and Cole Hauser accepted the award on her behalf after her name was called during the broadcast.

Addressing Amanda not being there, they told the audience: “Amanda Seyfried is deep in the process of creating a new musical this week and could not be here tonight.”

The excuse sent Amanda’s fans into a frenzy on social media, who begged for more information on the project she’s working on.

“Amanda Seyfried can't be here tonight because she is “deep in the process of creating a new musical this week” DO GO ON??” said one person.

Another added: “What the f**k new musical is Amanda Seyfried deep in the process of creating”.

“Amanda seyfried new musical WHAT,” a third went on.

Echoing similar sentiments, a fourth fan insisted: “i can’t believe they just said amanda seyfried is deep in the throes of creating a new musical im gonna be thinking about this nonstop what’s the musical amanda what’s happening the girls need to know amanda”.
