Jason Sudeikis thanks ex Olivia Wilde as he wins best actor for Ted Lasso at Critics Choice Awards

Jason Sudeikis thanked his ex Olivia Wilde as he accepted the Critics Choice Award for best actor in a comedy series. 

The Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso won in every category it was nominated in at Sunday night’s virtual ceremony, including best comedy series, best supporting actress for Hannah Waddingham, and best actor for Jason.

The show, which revolves around an American football coach who is hired to manage a Premier League team, won best comedy over seven other shows – Better Things, The Flight Attendant, Mom, PEN15, Ramy, Schitt’s Creek and What We Do in the Shadows.

Jason beat Hank Azaria (Brockmire), Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows), Nicholas Hoult (The Great), Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek) and Ramy Youssef (Ramy) to the award, and accepted the win in another hoodie – this time a blue jumper teamed with a flat cap, after wearing a tie-dyed hoodie for the Golden Globes.

While delivering his speech from his living room, the 45-year-old thanked ‘Otis and Daisy’s mom’ for encouraging him to play Ted Lasso, who was brought to life for advertisements for NBC Sports’ coverage of the Premier League, in a TV show.

He said: ‘I want to thank my kids, Otis and Daisy. I want to thank their mom Olivia, who had the initial idea to do this as a TV show, saying, “You and Brendan [Hunt] and Joe [Kelly] like doing that so much, you should do it as a movie or TV show” … She was right.’

Jason continued: ‘It’s been a wack-ass year. This thing has been a wonderful vessel to hear people’s stories of forgiveness and redemption and healing and understanding. It’s really, really flattering to have the opportunity to share something. It means something to you guys. It means a lot. Thank you.’  

Olivia, 36, later congratulated her former partner, tweeting: ‘Congrats to Jason and the entire Ted Lasso family on your @CriticsChoice wins! @jasonsudeikis@hanwaddingham@brendanhunting @joekellyjk47 @VDOOZER! So happy for you guys. I hope this means we all keep wearing hoodies when the ceremonies are in person next year.’

Jason and Olivia had been dating for nine years and were engaged for seven when they split up in early 2020, with the news coming to light later in the year.

Despite the break-up, it seems the pair are on good terms, and are co-parenting their children Otis, six, and Daisy, four.

After wrapping filming on Don’t Worry Darling, which she directs and stars in, Olivia flew to London where Jason is filming season two of Ted Lasso, and is believed to have formed a bubble with her ex so they can both spend time with their children.

It is believed Harry Styles, 27, accompanied Olivia on the trip to England, as the pair were pictured holding hands at Harry’s manager’s wedding.

Meanwhile, there is speculation that actress and former Page 3 model Keeley Hazell is living with Jason, after she shared a selfie from the same living room that the actor has been accepting awards from.

Keeley, 34, met Jason in 2014 when they filmed Horrible Bosses 2, and currently stars as Bex, the younger girlfriend of AFC Richmond’s former owner, in Ted Lasso.
