“Ted Lasso” won three gongs at the Television Critics’ Choice Awards.
The hit comedy drama series, starring Jason Sudeikis, won the awards ceremony (09.15.21) on Wednesday in the categories of outstanding new programs, comedy outstanding achievements, and programs of the year.
Elsewhere, Michaela Coel (creator, writer, executive producer, and star of “I May Destroy You”) won the Drama’s Personal Achievement Award.
HBO has become even more successful at “Mare of East Town.”
The crime drama series created by Brad Inglesby, starring Kate Winslet, has won praise for its outstanding achievements in movies, miniseries, or specials.
“Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” (a late-night satirical show on HBO) praised the outstanding achievements of variety, talk and sketching for the third consecutive year.
Meanwhile, NBC’s sitcom “Golden Girls” won the Heritage Award, and Jean Smart won the Career Achievement Award.
Melanie McFarland, president of the Television Critics Association, said in a COVID-19 pandemic that television is a “welcome pastime” for the general public.
“The fact that comedy holds the highest position in the 2021 TCA Awards proves this.”
Melanie also admitted that she couldn’t wait to meet the winners again in 2022.
She explained: “From the folk humor of Ted Lasso and the sharp take of Hack to the timeless laughter of The Golden Girls, this season’s offering gives you plenty of reasons to smile in uncertain times. I did.
“We are excited to celebrate these outstanding programs in celebrating the 37th anniversary of the TCA Awards and look forward to seeing them again in 2022.”
