The 79th annual Golden Globe Awards are here, set to honor some of the best in film and television in 2021. Following the ongoing controversy around the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization ended up hosting a private event this year, rather than the normal televised, celebrity-filled evening that audiences have come to expect.

Apple TV+’s critically acclaimed comedy series Ted Lasso was nominated for four awards this evening and ultimately won one: Jason Sudeikis for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

Sudeikis portrays the lead character of the show, Ted Lasso, a man with a heart of gold, a mustache of steel, a pocket full of snappy one-liners, and a killer sneaker collection. Since the show premiered, Sudeikis’ Ted and his optimistic “Believe” slogan have skyrocketed to pop culture phenomenon status, inspiring fans across the world to spread positivity and bake biscuits in his honor.

Given the outstanding success of both seasons thus far (check out our season 2 review!), it comes as no surprise that Ted Lasso continues to be a staple nominee across award shows as of late. If you’ve yet to watch, make sure to peruse our top five reasons why you need to watch this show right now.

Ted Lasso also stars Hannah Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster, Nick Mohammed, and more.

Seasons 1 and 2 of Ted Lasso are now streaming exclusively on Apple TV+, and a third season is on the way. In case you missed it, a hilariously festive animated short “The Missing Christmas Mustache,” was released last month.

Stay tuned for more news on Ted Lasso!
