Apple TV+ Wins First Golden Globe: Jason Sudeikis Best Actor TV Series, Musical or Comedy for Ted Lasso

“…the best actor is the person you are acting with.”

Apple TV+ picked up its first Golden Globe this evening with Jason Sudeikis winning Best Actor in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy for his title role in Apple original comedy series Ted Lasso. Apple's first Golden Globe marks another success for its awards campaign team with the service accumulating over 200 nominations and over 60 awards at the time of writing.

Jason Sudeikis accepted his award during the twilight hours in London via live video-link during an all virtual award ceremony whilst representing his siblings New York based dance studio.

"Wow, that's nuts! Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press.
This is for me the coolest thing that a group of... that's nuts.
I want to thank everybody that works on the show. I'm reading a book to my son Otis called the three questions by Leo Tolstoy and he has these three questions. When's the best time to do things? What is the right thing to do? and who is the most important one? (the answer to) that last question is whoever is the person that you're with. So, I kind of reject the premise of being best actor because in my humble opinion the best actor is the person you are acting with. I want to shout out to all of the people I get to act with on this show because they're incredible. Do they make me the best? no. But I know for a fact that they make me better. Better than I am, better than I thought I could be and better than I thought I could do."

Production is currently underway in London for Ted Lasso season 2 and 3 and is expected to conclude in May with the premiere of season 2 expected to air on Apple TV+ in the summer.

Ted Lasso's award winning first season is now available to stream on Apple TV+.

Apple have announced that its original comedy “Ted Lasso” will debut on TV+ this August. Jason Sudeikis reprises his role originally played for a viral ad campaign promoting NBCSN’s English Premier League coverage.

Apple describe the series as follows:

Ted Lasso is a small-time college football coach from Kansas hired to coach a professional soccer team in England, despite having no experience coaching soccer.

Sudeikis also serves as executive producer, alongside Bill Lawrence (“Scrubs”) via his Doozer Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content.

Apple have signed the original comedy series to a multi-year deal. The company continues its efforts to bring live sports to its streaming service with the English Premier League broadcasting rights set for auction during the 2021/22 season.
