Fans Will Love How Jason Sudeikis and ‘Ted Lasso’ Cast Celebrated Emmys
Actor Jason Sudeikis won his first Emmy for Ted Lasso — and claimed Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, at that! But it was only one of several awards the show received at the 2021 Emmy Awards.
Sudeikis and the Ted Lasso cast had a big night and they celebrated their wins together at a private after-party. Lucky for fans who want to know what they did at that party, witnesses leaked a few details online.
The cast celebrated by performing with and for each other, and also snacking on some favorite treats from the show.
Jason Sudeikis and the ‘Ted Lasso’ cast win some and lose some
Ted Lasso on Apple TV+ is a fan favorite. The feel-good comedy immediately resonated with viewers thanks to a stellar cast led by Sudeikis. As such, it’s little surprise the show and its stars did well at the 2021 Emmy Awards.
Sudeikis has one Emmy trophy to show, but the night was a more momentous achievement than that. This year is the first he’s snagged a nomination in any category and his multiple roles on the show scored him nods in four.
Ted Lasso received a slew of nominations and claimed four wins total, including Outstanding Comedy Series.
Hannah Waddingham won her first Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Rebecca Welton. Then, Brett Goldstein won his first Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for playing Roy Kent. Both Waddingham and Goldstein claimed bittersweet victories over Ted Lasso costars.
After so much success, and despite a few losses, a cast celebration was well in order.
The cast celebrated wins with ‘Ted Lasso’ biscuits and birthday cake for Jason Sudeikis
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cast’s after-party was “a strictly “friends and family”-style gathering for the cast and creative team.”
Writer and producer Jamie Lee said of the party, “What we’ve made only exists because everybody came together to create this beautiful thing, and so it’s really nice to just be with your people and celebrate that.”
Guests snacked on the show’s famous biscuits. There was also birthday cake in honor of Sudeikis, who turned 46 on Sept. 18. Party witnesses said the cast also had a blast singing karaoke, and Sudeikis reportedly performed in more than one duet.
‘Ted Lasso’ season 3 is confirmed
New episodes of the second season of Ted Lasso are currently streaming on Apple TV+. There are still two new episodes left to catch on Fridays before the season finale debuts on Oct. 8.
Fans can enjoy what’s left of the season, but also rejoice that the show will return for a third. Season 3 was picked up before the second season ever premiered. Until it premieres, fans can sometimes catch the cast in character on Twitter.
Sudeikis confirmed that the third season will also have 12 episodes. But rumor is that he plans on making Ted Lasso a three-season show. He confirmed he planned on a three-season arc, but still hinted at the possibility of continuing the show after season 3.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Sudeikis said he’s happy for the first three seasons and he doesn’t know what will happen after that. But he jokingly referred to the “iMoney truck” as a potential influence on his decisions.
Judging by the show’s success at the 2021 Emmy Awards, the formula is successful enough to make it last a little longer. Fans of the show would probably love to hear it’s been extended beyond season 3 no matter what reasons Sudeikis has for doing it.
