‘Ted Lasso’ Cast Celebrate Record-Breaking Emmy Nomination Day

After a positively stunning first season, the love for Ted Lasso continues unabated. Just days away from the premiere of its highly anticipated second season, the comedy darling from Apple TV+ has a lot to celebrate today. The happiest show on TV is now the all-time most nominated comedy series for a freshman season.

All seven of Ted Lasso’s acting nominees are first timers, and here is a quick look at how some of them reacted to the news:

Brett Goldstein, aka loveable curmudgeon Roy Kent:

Holy f***ing s***. What an incredible honor. Proper dream come true s***.

Every part of this show has felt like magic to me. To have the privilege to work on it, to get to make something with this incredible team and now for us to be nominated as a team is just too lovely. Extra special thanks to Jason and Bill for inviting me to be part of this. What a thing…

As a cynical English guy I’m struggling to deal with all this wonderfulness. I’m not crying, you’re crying. F*** off! You’re crying. You ****.

Nick Mohammed, who plays shy but whip-smart Nathan Shelley said:

Honoured, baffled and utterly thrilled to be nominated alongside these absolute giants and to represent Ted Lasso and everything it/he stands for.

Hannah Waddingham, as brilliant and broken (but reparable) boss Rebecca Welton rejoiced:

I can’t quite believe this is happening. I don’t know what feels greater, to be recognized for my own work or all the joy I feel for my magnificent TED LASSO family to be nominated themselves. We are a real family and to share this with them is everything. Thank you to the Television Academy. Rebecca runs through my blood stream. She is so precious to me, and this is just the icing on the cake.

Jeremy Swift, as unexpected beating heart of AFC Richmond, Leslie Higgins, humbly said:

I am very surprised to be nominated along with many of my hugely talented colleagues. Thank you Emmy voters for your support for the show. The cast, crew and creatives appreciate it very much. I hope we can continue to entertain you with forthcoming seasons.

Now I am going to bed with a hot beverage.

Juno Temple, whose Keeley Jones might actually be an even more optimistic person than Coach Lasso himself, said:

Oh my goodness I am absolutely speechless! Thank you so much for this overwhelming recognition of our show that has meant so much to me. Ted Lasso truly is a family and I could not be more grateful to be a part of it.
