The 28th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards took place this evening, honoring 2021’s best achievements across film and television. Following five nominations across three categories, Apple TV+’s hit series Ted Lasso ultimately scored two awards.
Series lead Jason Sudeikis won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series.
Meanwhile, the entire cast also received some well-deserved recognition for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
To absolutely nobody’s surprise, Ted Lasso has been a frequent flyer across award shows left and right following its 2020 series premiere.
Ted Lasso follows the story of a small-time college football coach from Kansas (Sudeikis) who’s hired to coach a soccer team in England, AFC Richmond. Despite the fact that he’s never coached soccer before, Ted makes up for his lack of experience with his unwaveringly positive can-do attitude, a killer mustache, a pocket full of snappy one-liners.
The series also stars Hannah Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster, Nick Mohammed, and more.
