On Sunday, Jason Sudeikis, co-creator and star of hit show Ted Lasso, won the first Emmy of his career for his title role in the Apple TV+ series. At Sunday’s Emmys ceremony, Sudeikis took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

Ted Lasso “is about family, this show is about mentors and teachers, this show is about teammates. And I wouldn’t be here without those three,” Sudeikis said in his acceptance speech. He went on to thank his family: his parents, sisters and children. He also made a joke about his former boss Lorne Michaels and thanked his current teammates.
