Jason Sudeikis just won his first Emmy for his role on Apple TV’s “Ted Lasso.”

The “Saturday Night Live” alum was nominated for best lead actor in a comedy series. Other nominees in the category included Anthony Anderson for “Black-ish,” Michael Douglas for “The Kominsky Method,” William H. Macy for “Shameless,” and Sudeikis’ former “SNL” costar Kenan Thompson for “Kenan.”

Sudeikis previously won the Golden Globe for his work on the comedy.

On “Ted Lasso,” he plays a well-meaning but uninformed American football coach who takes a job in England coaching a soccer team.

Hannah Waddingham, Juno Temple, Jeremy Swift, Phil Dunster, and Brett Goldstein also star on the show.
