To celebrate her nominations for best supporting actress in the drama and limited series categories, the 24-year-old made a tearful phone call to her mom.
On HBO’s disorienting teen drama “Euphoria,” Sweeney had a standout season as the hopelessly romantic high schooler Cassie, who lies to her friends and family about a toxic relationship. On the prickly satire “The White Lotus,” also on HBO, she’s much more vicious as Olivia, a Nietzsche-reading college student whose friendship with a less wealthy pal dissolves while on a posh Hawaiian vacation. In both series, Sweeney’s characters wreak havoc, albeit for different reasons.
“Mom, I love you, we did it through the ups and downs!” she wrote, punctuating with joyful emojis.
