Don’t worry; none of the ongoing controversy involving Jason Sudeikis‘ ex-fiancée Olivia Wilde was present when he accepted an award on stage.
At the 74th Annual Emmy Awards on Monday night, the “Ted Lasso” star brought home his second Best Actor trophy for his portrayal of the constantly cheery, endlessly mustachioed soccer coach on Apple TV+’s sports comedy.
With 20 nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series, the series was one of the most prestigious of this year.
“I have watched award programs while lounging at home. My mother adores award shows, and whenever I smash someone’s balls, they always jump up and claim they had no chance. In his winning speech, Sudeikis stated, “I honestly didn’t. “I’m not too prepared, but I did take classes at the Second City, so I’m going for it,” the nominee said of the incredible group with which she was nominated.

“I’d like to thank my parents. We appreciate our fantastic cast. It’s a pleasure working with you guys. You guys are incredible,” he said. Thank you so much to the viewers who enjoy the program as much as we do when producing it. I’m genuinely shocked and flattered. I’m grateful.
The current scandal surrounding Sudeikis’ previous relationship with Wilde, the actor, and director with whom he shares two children, looms possibly even larger.
After seven years of dating, the couple called off their engagement in November of last year. Wilde then started dating pop sensation Harry Styles, who also stars in her upcoming psychological suspense film, “Don’t Worry Darling.”
When she was issued with child custody papers in April while discussing the movie on stage at CinemaCon, Wilde claimed it was done so aggressively in an effort to “embarrass me professionally.”
According to Variety, a source close to Sudeikis has stated that he had “no previous knowledge of the time and place” where Wilde received the papers and that he would “never condone her being served in such an unethical manner.”

In a number of recent interviews, Wilde voiced her confusion over where exactly she received the legal paperwork, pointing out the different security checks one had to go through to gain entrance to the CinemaCon stage.
She stated to Variety last month, “It was my employment.” “It would be seen as an assault in any other job. It caused a lot of distress. This was not supposed to be able to happen. It’s rather unsettling that there was such a significant security lapse. This was something that took planning because of the obstacles you had to overcome to enter the room with several badges, as well as the unique COVID tests you had to do days in advance in order to receive wristbands that were required to enter the event.
In a later cover story for Vanity Fair, Wilde claimed that the action hadn’t “shocked” her because it was “compatible with my experience of the relationship.”
The account from Sudeikis’ perspective has not yet been made public.
For Sudeikis, who also serves as “Ted Lasso’s” executive producer, writer, and creator, Monday’s victory follows a streak of successes. For his contributions to the show, the former “Saturday Night Live” cast member has previously received numerous honors, including Emmy, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild awards.
