‘Ted Lasso’ Star Jason Sudeikis Wins Golden Globe for Musical or Comedy TV Series Actor

It seems Ted Lasso really is winning over everyone: Jason Sudeikis won the musical or comedy series actor statue at the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

This was Sudeikis’ first-ever nomination from the HFPA and therefore first win. It came for his portrayal of the titular American football coach who crossed the pond to work for a Premier League team in Apple TV Plus’ freshman half-hour. But, Sudeikis first portrayed the character more than half a decade ago, in promotional videos for NBC Sports’ coverage of the real-life Premier League. The expansion of the character in a feel-good sitcom won over audiences and critics alike when it premiered during the tumultuous summer of 2020, and it has picked up its first award too.

Sudeikis was nominated alongside “Black Monday’s” Don Cheadle, “The Great’s” Nicholas Hoult, “Schitt’s Creek’s” Eugene Levy and the incumbent winner in the category, “Ramy’s” Ramy Youssef.

“Ted Lasso” has proven to be a breakout hit for Apple. The show is currently in production on its second season in London. It was renewed for a third season back in October before production on Season 2 had begun.
