Jason Sudeikis Thanks Ex Olivia Wilde in Critics Choice Awards 2021 Acceptance Speech

Jason Sudeikis gave a surprising shout-out in his acceptance speech during the 2021 Critics Choice Awards.

On Sunday night (March 7), the 45-year-old actor’s hit comedy series Ted Lasso won big at the awards show.

Jason gave a special shout-out to his ex Olivia Wilde while accepting the award for Best Comedy Series.

“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 said.

After it was announced that Jason had won, the 36-year-old actress/director took to Twitter to congratulate Jason and the Ted Lasso crew for their big wins.

“Congrats to Jason and the entire Ted Lasso family on your @CriticsChoice wins!” Olivia tweeted. “@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.”

It was announced back in November 2020 that Jason and Olivia had broken up after almost 10 years together. In January, Olivia went public with new boyfriend Harry Styles.

Jason was recently spotted out with this model amid romance rumors!
