Jason Sudeikis has won a 2021 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in Ted Lasso. This marks Sudeikis' first Screen Actors Guild nomination and win.

The award follows last month's Critics Choice Awards, in which Ted Lasso won Best Comedy Series, Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Sudeikis, and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Hannah Waddingham. Sudeikis also won Best Actor in a Comedy Series at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this year.

Including today's recognitions, Apple has been honored with a total of 345 awards nominations and accolades, and 91 awards wins since its global launch just over a year ago including Critics Choice Awards, Critics Choice Documentary Awards, Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards, NAACP Image Awards, a Peabody Award, a Golden Globe Award and more.

"Ted Lasso" stars Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, a small-time college football coach from Kansas hired to coach a professional soccer team in England, despite having no experience coaching soccer. Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster and Nick Mohammed star alongside Sudeikis in the ensemble cast.

In addition to starring, Sudeikis serves as executive producer, alongside Bill Lawrence via his Doozer Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content. Doozer’s Jeff Ingold also serves as an executive producer with Liza Katzer as co-executive producer. The series was developed by Sudeikis, Lawrence, Hunt and Joe Kelly, and is based on the pre-existing format and characters from NBC Sports.

You can watch the complete first season of “Ted Lasso” on Apple TV+ now. The second season will premiere this summer and a third season has already been ordered.
