Her Primetime Emmy isn’t the only award that Ayo Edebiri has won as of late. Throughout this month, Edebiri has also won Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards for her performance in “The Bear” Season 2. Following her win at this year’s Golden Globes, Edebiri’s former music teacher told WHDH Boston, “I’m very proud of her. It’s wonderful to see someone, a young person, become an adult who is just so beautiful and so well-rounded.”
Her recent streak of award wins has capped off what has been an astonishingly successful few years for Edebiri. In 2022, her star status rose considerably after “The Bear” premiered, and she’s since played prominent roles in big-screen comedies like “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem,” “Bottoms,” and “Theater Camp.”
If her now-viral yearbook photo proves anything, it’s that Edebiri has always had the likable comedic spirit that has made her one of her generation’s most promising and recognizable stars, too. Reading through her yearbook captions, it’s not hard to see why Edebiri has not only scored so many onscreen comedic roles but also why she’s been chosen to work as a writer and producer on shows like “Dickinson,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” and “Big Mouth.”
While she hasn’t collected any dragon balls yet (that we know of), it seems safe to say that Edebiri has nonetheless achieved a rare level of success in Hollywood. The fact that she’s long possessed the same wit and confidence that has made her such a beloved performer, frankly, just makes her seem all the more endearing and deserving of her recent accomplishments.
