Apple TV+ Original ‘Ted Lasso’ Wins 2021 Screen Actors Guild Award

Apple has announced its Apple TV+ Original comedy hit, ‘Ted Lasso’, has won a 2021 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award.

The SAG Award win went to Jason Sudeikis, the star and executive producer of ‘Ted Lasso’, for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series.

This was the first time Sudeikis had been nominated for a SAG Award and first time winning an award from the latter.

‘Ted Lasso’ continues to win awards. Back in March, the comedy series swept the Critics Choice Awards in the categories it was nominated for: Best Comedy Series; Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Sudeikis; and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Hannah Waddingham.

The Apple TV+ Original also brought Apple a Golden Globe Award earlier this year, with Sudeikis picking up the win in the Best Actor in a Comedy Series.

“Including today’s recognitions, Apple has been honoured with a total of 345 awards nominations and accolades, and 91 awards wins since its global launch just over a year ago,” said the company in a statement on Sunday evening.
