Apple and its flagship comedy “Ted Lasso” did pretty well for themselves at last night’s Critics Choice Awards.
“Ted Lasso” became the most-awarded series at the 2022 Critics Choice Awards and swept top comedy categories for the second consecutive year with four awards in total, including back-to-back awards for Best Comedy Series, Best Actor in a Comedy Series and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, as well as the first-ever award for Brett Goldstein in the Best Supporting Actor category, explains a new press release from the Cupertino company.
In addition, the broadly acclaimed, Academy Award-nominated and multi-award-winning Apple Original Film “CODA” continued its awards momentum last night, as star Troy Kotsur won the award for Best Supporting Actor and became the first Deaf actor to be honoured with a Critics Choice Award.
Apple’s press release announcing the wins explains:
Following last year’s sweep, the second season of global cultural phenomenon “Ted Lasso” triumphed at the 2022 Critics Choice Awards, nabbing the coveted awards for Best Comedy Series, Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Jason Sudeikis, Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Hannah Waddingham and Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Brett Goldstein. This marks the first Critics Choice Award for Goldstein, and the second consecutive Critics Choice Award wins for Sudeikis and Waddingham.
The full rundown of Apple wins is as follows:
- Best Supporting Actor – Troy Kotsur, “CODA”
- Best Comedy Series – “Ted Lasso”
- Best Actor in a Comedy Series – Jason Sudeikis, “Ted Lasso”
- Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series – Hannah Waddingham, “Ted Lasso”
- Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series – Brett Goldstein, “Ted Lasso”
Apple TV+ has picked up almost 1,000 awards nominations since its debut a little more than two years ago and it seems highly likely that there are many more wins on the horizon.
