Don’t worry, Emmy darling Jason Sudeikis took an award on stage for an uninterrupted run from any ongoing drama with his ex-fiancé Olivia Wilde.
The “Ted Lasso” star took home his second Best Actor trophy on Monday evening for his performance as the constantly-sunny, persistent-mustache soccer coach in the sports comedy Apple TV Plus at the 74th Annual Emmys.
The series topped all other comedies with 20 nominations, including Most Decorated, Outstanding Comedy Series of the Year.
“I have watched award shows sitting at home. My mom loves award shows. I always burst people’s balls, they get up and say, ‘I didn’t have a chance.’ I really didn’t,” Sudeikis said during his acceptance speech. “It’s an amazing group, I was enrolled so I’m not overly prepared, but I took classes in another city, so I’m going for it.”
“Thank you to my parents. Thank you to our incredible cast. I am glad to work with you guys. You guys are amazing,” he continued. Many thanks to the people who watched the show and we made it. I dig as much as I do. I am really surprised and happy. Thank you.”
But perhaps even bigger is the ongoing controversy about Sudeikis’ former relationship with Wilde, the director and actor with whom he shares two children.
Last November, the pair broke off their engagement after seven years, and Wilde later began a romance with pop star Harry Styles, who stars in her new psychological thriller, “Don’t Worry Darling.”
Wilde was speaking about the film on stage at CinemaCon in April when she was served with child custody documents, a move she said was meant to “embarrass me professionally” and “in the most aggressive way possible”. it was done.
Meanwhile, a source close to the Sudeikis has insisted that he had “no prior knowledge of the time and place” where Wilde obtained the documents, and that he had “never been in such an improbable manner,” according to Variety. Will not condemn the service done”.

In several recent interviews, Wilde expressed his nervousness at the exact same spot where he was served with legal papers, including the various security measures he had to face in order to access the CinemaCon platform.
“It was my workplace,” she told Variety last month. “In any other workplace, it would be seen as an attack. It was really disturbing. This should not have happened. There is a huge security lapse, which is really scary. The barriers you had to overcome to get into that room with several badges, as well as special COVID tests that had to be done a few days ago, that provided you with the wristbands that were needed to gain access to the event – it’s something It was something that required forethought.”
Wilde later said in a Vanity Fair cover story that she was not “surprised” by the move, as it was “in line with my experience of the relationship.”
Sudeikis has yet to publicly share his side of the story.
Monday’s win comes on the heels of a string of achievements for Sudeikis, who also serves as executive producer, writer, and producer on “Ted Lasso.” The “Saturday Night Live” alum has previously been honored with several awards for his work on the series, including multiple Emmys, Golden Globes, and Screen Actors Guild trophies.
