The annual Golden Globe Awards was created to honor the best of both U.S. and international film and U.S. television, as chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
“Ted Lasso” stars Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, a small-time college football coach from Kansas who is hired to coach a professional soccer team in England despite having no experience coaching soccer.

Other nominees in the category included:

This is the first Golden Globe Award won by an Apple TV+ original or performer. Apple TV+ had three other nominations this year but did not win in those categories.
Ted Lasso has been renewed for a second and a third season. The second season is expected to debut during summer 2021.
