In 2021, Jason Sudeikis won the first-ever Golden Globe for Apple TV+. On Sunday night he repeated, again winning the Best Television Actor in a musical or comedy award for his leading role in the streaming service’s comedy hit Ted Lasso.

And just like in 2021, Sudeikis’ win was the only one for Apple TV+, despite a handful of other nominations.

Golden Globes: Several Apple TV+ nominations, one win

Ted Lasso has won a slew of awards, including Emmys and a Peabody, but the HBO series Hacks beat the show for Best Musical/Comedy Series at the 2022 Golden Globes.

Lasso‘s Brett Goldstein, who plays footballer Roy Kent on the show, lost in the Best Supporting Actor – Television category to O Yeong-su for Netflix’s Squid Game. Other nominees in the category included Billy Crudup and Mark Duplass for The Morning Show on Apple TV+. Also from that show, Jennifer Aniston lost out in the Best Television Actress – Drama category to Michaela Jae Rodriguez in Pose on FX.

In the Best Supporting Actress – Television category, Sarah Snook won for HBO’s Succession, beating out Hannah Waddingham. She plays Rebecca Welton, the owner of the AFC Richmond football club on Ted Lasso.

Apple TV+’s Sundance smash CODA fell short in the Best Picture Drama category, won by writer/director Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog.

Hollywood Foreign Press Association

The 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association award the The Golden Globes each year. With last year’s ceremony, the came under fire for having no Black members.

The organization said it would reform itself in various ways, but some media firms have distanced themselves from it. Among them is NBC, which usually airs the ceremony. The network said it would not televise the ceremony in 2022 ceremony, but it will consider doing so for 2023.

As a result, the 2022 awards ceremony Sunday night carried a lower profile than usual. This was Variety‘s description: “Golden Globes put on an event that could have been put in an email.”

A third season of Ted Lasso is in production and will air later this year on Apple TV+. The streaming services is available by subscription for $4.99 a month.
