Everyone’s favorite terrifying teenager is getting an award right here in Austin. ATX TV Festival on Friday announced that Sydney Sweeney, star of HBO hits “The White Lotus” and “Euphoria,” will receive its second Breakthrough Award.
Sweeney will be in town for the festival, which runs June 2-5, and she will participate in a one-on-one conversation about her career.
The honor “recognizes an individual whose creative voice has made a substantial and unique imprint on the current moment in TV, and whose work exemplifies the emotional, entertaining, and artistic possibilities of the medium,” according to the festival. “Pose” star Angelica Ross won the inaugural Breakthrough Award last year.
