Jason Sudeikis picks up an award for the lead role in Ted Lasso, Apple adds a Gloden Globe award to its accolades
Apple TV+ already picked up four Golden Globe nominations, but now has won one of them with ‘Ted Lasso’ star Jason Sudeikis. He beat out Eugene Levy and Don Cheadle for the award.
It’s the coolest thing. That’s nuts. That’s crazy. I want to thank everybody that works on this show. I read this book to my son, Otis, called ‘The Three Questions’ by Leo Tolstoy. It has three questions. When’s the best time to do things? What’s the right thing to do? And then who’s the most important one?
That last question, who’s the most important one, is whoever the person you’re with. So I kind of reject the premise of being the Best Actor because, in my humble opinion, the best actor is the person you’re acting with.
Sudeikis stars in Ted Lasso as a small-time college football coach from Kansas hired to coach a professional soccer team in England, while also having zero experience in coaching soccer. The show has received tons of positive reviews. Many fans have found solace in Lasso”s unwavering positivity, especially during the current situation of the world.
This was the 78th annual Golden Globes ceremony. The Golden Globe Awards honor the best of both U.S. and international film and television, as chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
The whole cast of Ted Lasso will be taking part in a virtual panel discussion at the PaleyFest television festival, with a video of the discussion releasing on April 1 at 7 a.m Pacific Time. The panel will consist of Brendan Hunt, Juno Temple, Nick Mohammed, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster, Jeremy Swift, Hannah Waddingham, series creator Bill Lawrence, and Ted Lasso himself, Jason Sudeikis.
