Global hit comedy series “Ted Lasso” recently made history as the most nominated comedy in Emmy Awards history, and earning an esteemed Peabody Award. To date, “Ted Lasso” has been also honored with an Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series Award for Jason Sudeikis at the 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards; three Critics Choice Awards for Best Comedy Series, Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Jason Sudeikis, and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Hannah Waddingham, sweeping all categories in which the widely beloved series was nominated; a Best Actor in a Comedy Series at the Golden Globe Awards for star Sudeikis; and, the Writers Guild of America crowned “Ted Lasso” with wins for both Best Comedy and Best New Series.


“Ted Lasso” stars Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, a small-time American college football coach hired to coach a Premier League team despite having no experience coaching the English game. Sudeikis also serves as executive producer on the show and is supported by an Emmy nominated ensemble including Hannah Waddingham, Brett Goldstein, Juno Temple, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift and Nick Mohammed. The second season is now streaming on Apple TV+.

The sensational winner of the Grand Jury Prize for documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, “Boys State” is a wildly entertaining and continually revealing immersion into a week-long annual program in which a thousand Texas high school seniors gather for an elaborate mock exercise: building their own state government. Filmmakers Jesse Moss and Amanda McBaine closely track the escalating tensions that arise within a particularly riveting gubernatorial race, training their cameras on unforgettable teenagers like Ben, a Reagan-loving arch-conservative who brims with confidence despite personal setbacks, and Steven, a progressive-minded child of Mexican immigrants who stands by his convictions amidst the sea of red. In the process, they have created a complex portrait of contemporary American masculinity, as well as a microcosm of our often dispiriting national political divisions that nevertheless manages to plant seeds of hope. In addition to landing the Sundance Grand Jury Prize in 2020, “Boys State” was named Best Political Documentary at the Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards, in addition to garnering best documentary wins from the Chicago Indie Critics, Oklahoma Film Critics Circle, Denver Film Critics Society Awards, Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association, Las Vegas Film Critics Society, and Phoenix Film Critics Society. The film also appeared on former President Barack Obama’s list of favorite movies from 2020.

Recently renewed for a fifth season, “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” is a four-time Emmy Award-winning singing sensation, featuring a star-studded lineup across television, film, music, sports, pop culture and more. Each episode welcomes a different group of superstars every episode buckling up and belting out their favorite songs for a road trip filled with comedy, conversation and music. “Carpool Karaoke: The Series,” which is based on the popular segment from “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” won the past three consecutive Emmy Awards in 2018, 2019 and 2020 for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series and the Critics’ Choice Award for Short Form Series in 2019. “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” is produced for Apple by CBS Studios in association with Fulwell 73.
