Apple TV+ original series, Ted Lasso, has swept the 26th annual 2021 Critics Choice Awards, which took place on Sunday, March 7 in Los Angeles, California.
Ted Lasso won in all three categories it was nominated in, in the comedy genre:
- Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Hannah Waddingham
- Best Actor in a Comedy Series: Jason Sudeikis

Sudeikis, fresh off his Golden Globe win, which gave Apple TV+ its first award in the latter, beat out fellow nominees Hank Azaria (Brockmire), Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows), Nicholas Hoult (The Great), Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek) and Ramy Youssef (Ramy) for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
As for Best Comedy Series, Ted Lasso took home the win over Schitt’s Creek, Mom, What We Do in the Shadows and The Flight Attendant.
