Jason Sudeikis had quite the speech last night after discovering he won a Golden Globe Award for “Best Actor in a TV Series, Musical, or comedy, thanks to his AppleTV+ breakout comedy, Ted Lasso.
Okay, “quite” is a bit of an understatement.
The 45-year-old actor and comedian, well known for his time as a writer and actor for Saturday Night Live, was caught in disbelief as he was told that he had just won a Gold Globe, and not gonna lie, my guy looked like he was zooted off his arse.
Seen in a tie-dye hoodie, with glassy eyes the color of the red carpet, Sudeikis had a hard time keeping his train of thought as he attempted to make an acceptance speech in two minutes. Many people have speculated Sudeikis looked like he had a date with the devil’s lettuce right before he got on, and the faces of the co-nominees are PRICELESS.
Sudeikis starts off his speech by saying:
“Uh, thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press, I mean this is the, for me the coolest thing that a group of, you know, like uh, that’s nuts, that’s crazy”
Then he proceeds to say “this is nuts” two more times…
We see co-nominee Don Cheadle start to motion for Sudeikis to wrap it up while others laugh, as Sudeikis has a tough time letting out what he wants to say.
Let’s give the guy a break though, Sudeikis is currently in England filming the second season of Ted Lasso, and it was between 2 a.m and 3 a.m. in England when he had to accept the award via Zoom meeting. Maybe the guy was just exhausted, and so stunned at the nomination that he was at a loss for words.
Personally, I like to go with the theory that the edibles just hit at the perfect time. That’s more fun.
