Ted Lasso’s Jason Sudeikis and cast win big at 2022 SAG Awards for outstanding actor and ensemble

The cast of the heartwarming comedy sensation Ted Lasso was among the most high profile winners on Sunday at the 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

The actors on the Apple TV+ series were awarded with the high-profile honor for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, though all of the cast had to accept remotely from London.

The show’s star, Saturday Night Live veteran Jason Sudeikis, also won the series’ only individual acting award, while his costars Brett Goldstein, Juno Temple and Hannah Waddingham were all nominated. 

Leading man: Jason Sudeikis, 46, won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series at the 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday in Santa Monica 

The Ted Lasso cast was victorious against other acclaimed shows, including The Great, Hacks, The Kominsky Method, and Only Murders in the Building.

Sudeikis stars as the American football coach Ted Lasso, who moves to England to coach a soccer team despite having no familiarity with the game. 

Accepting the honor remotely, Jason — who beat out co-star Brett Goldstein, along with Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method), and Only Murders in the Building stars Steve Martin and Martin Short to take the prize — paid tribute to his ‘chosen family,’ as well as his two children, Otis, seven, and five-year-old Daisy, whom he shares with former fiancée Olivia Wilde.

‘Thank you very much to all you guys first and foremost, thank you. There’s my ensemble cast of Ted Lasso,’ he said while accepting the prize.

‘Thank you to Apple, Warner Brothers, all the writers, Everybody in post-production, everybody in production, our Covid crew that kept everybody safe all last season.

The actor also looked back at the improv and comedy experience that helped him get where he is now. 

‘Thanks to my kids, thanks to, you know, everybody I got to take improv classes with. Do improv shows with, everybody from Second City. My cast and crew and generation at SNL. My folks, my family and this chosen family here. So thank you very much. I really appreciate it,’ he gushed.

Ted Lasso stars Judo Temple and Hannah Waddingham were also nominated for the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series prize, but lost out to Hacks actress Jean Smart, who also faced stiff competition from Elle Fanning (The Great) and Sandra Oh (The Chair).

Jean — who has been nominated four times in the past — said on stage: ‘Actors, nobody gets us.

‘Seriously, what we do is valuable. I mean, we are the tribes’ storytellers, since man crawled out of the cave. It’s important. We actually are the world’s oldest profession.’

‘Oh my gosh, seriously, even though we’re a complete gaggle of idiots, we are so appreciative. Thank you so, so much. And we wish we were there with you, don’t we?’ she said excitedly.

She also included a shoutout for star Juno Temple, the only member of the cast who was able to attend in person in Santa Monica. 

In addition to the individual nominees, co-creator and star Brendan Hunt, Nick Mohammed and Sarah Niles were all seen in the boisterous crowd.

The cast appeared to have had to stay in the UK while filming the series, which began earlier this month.

It marked a later start to filming compared to the show’s first two seasons, indicating that the season three premiere will also likely be later than usual.

The event didn’t have a host, just a rotating group of speakers, and there hasn’t been a host since 2020, when Schitt’s Creek stars Eugene Levy and Dan Levy opened and closed the show.  

Fran Drescher, the newly-appointed SAG-AFTRA president, said last month: ‘After such a long time apart, we’re excited to be together again this year at the 28th annual Screen Actor’s Guild Awards.’ 

Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Hudgens named the nominees in a presentation via Instagram Live last month. 

Ted Lasso was tied with HBO’s acclaimed dramedy succession for five nominations each. 

Helen Mirren — who has received a total of five SAG Awards from 13 nominations — also received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement honor.  

The accolades are given out by the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. 

Founded in 1952, the awards recognize outstanding performances in movie and prime time television.
