The 73rd Emmy Awards took place this evening, honoring outstanding achievements across the television industry. Apple’s hit series Ted Lasso came into this year’s ceremony with an impressive 20 nominations, an achievement that is to be expected given what a hot topic the show has been this year.
Last weekend, during the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, the artistic and technical categories that Ted Lasso was nominated for were announced. The show garnered three wins.
Tonight, the winners of the show’s remaining nominations were revealed. Ted Lasso won an additional four awards!
- Hannah Waddingham for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
- Brett Goldstein for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
- Jason Sudeikis for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series
- Outstanding Comedy Series
This brings Ted Lasso up to a total of seven wins at the 73rd Emmy Awards. In addition to the above categories from this evening, last weekend’s wins included:
- Outsanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy or Drama Series (Half-Hour) And Animation
- Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Comedy Series – A.J. Catoline for “The Hope That Kills You”
- Outstanding Casting For A Comedy Series
Ted Lasso follows the story of an American football coach (Jason Sudeikis) who’s hired to manage a struggling soccer team — AFC Richmond — in the UK. What Ted lacks in knowledge of English football, he makes up for with his infectiously positive attitude and determination to bring out the best in all of his players and colleagues.
This series, currently in its second season with a third on the way, is the ultimate feel-good binge. Ted Lasso is a must-watch, regardless of if you have any interest in sports, because the real showstoppers here are the show’s comedy and heart.
Ted Lasso also stars Brendan Hunt, Hannah Waddingham, Jeremy Swift, Phil Dunster, Brett Goldstein, Nick Mohammed, Juno Temple, and more.
