The Serie Ted lasso has become, with just one season, the product that highest number of awards obtained for Apple TV + beating Apple’s big bets like The Morning Show, See and For all mankind.
This series just won 3 new awards for its Television Critics Association (TCA) showcases, winning awards in the top three categories: Show of the Year, New Show, and Best Comedy.
Ted Laso was the most awarded series, however, it was not the platform that won the most awards, with HBO, HBO Max and Netflix the ones that won the most awards. Television Critics Association President Melanie McFarland states that:
Television has stepped up this year, offering much-needed entertainment that has been a welcome distraction from real-life dramas. The fact that comedy shows reigned supreme at the 2021 TCA Awards is proof of that.
From the hearty humor of Ted Lasso and the sharp takes of Hacks, to the eternal laughs of The Golden Girls, this season’s sales gave us plenty of reasons to smile in uncertain times. We are excited to honor these outstanding programs in celebration of 37 years of the TCA Awards, and we look forward to getting back together in person in 2022.
The awards ceremony was held virtually, just like last year’s edition. The jury was made up of more than 250 critics and television journalists from the United States and Canada.
The series starring Jason Sudeikis received 20 Emmy Award nominations and has recently won triumph at the PHollywood Critics remotes with 4 awards.
