Zac Efron won his first career Emmy, thanks to the Netflix series “Zac Efron: Down to Earth.”
The actor received the Distinguished Daytime Program Host award at the 2021 Daytime Emmy Awards held on Sunday night.
Celebrating the news, Zack wrote on social media: “Wow! I never expected this and I am so grateful. Big thanks to DaytimeEmmysnetflix and our small but very strong team, #downtoearth, who were able to make this show possible. And most of all, thank you all for seeing it. This is for you”.
