Ted Lasso's Jason Sudeikis Wins His First Emmy, Calls Out SNL's Lorne Michaels During Funny Speech

Jason Sudeikis just won his first Emmy and he hilariously called out Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels during his acceptance speech.

The 46-year-old Ted Lasso actor won the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series at the 2021 Emmy Awards on Sunday (September 19) at The Event Deck at L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

Jason took a moment to thank Lorne for giving him his big break on SNL, but something funny happened.

Turns out… Lorne wasn’t at his seat during the speech, so Jason called him out!

“I want to thank folks at SNL,” he said. “Lorne who went to go take a dump now, perfect… He is going to get home, he’s going to watch, he loves watching the Emmys at home. It is fine. Which home is the big question?”

Jason also thanked his Ted Lasso team.

“This show is about mentors and teachers, this show is about teammates. And I wouldn’t be here without those three, you know things in my life… I thank my teammates that help make this show, Brendon [Hunt] and Joe [Kelly]. First and foremost from the get-go, Bill [Lawrence]. I want to thank our incredible writing staff. I want to thank our incredible directors. I want to thank my incredible cast. I am only as good as you guys make me look. And so really it means the world to me to be up here and just be a mirror of what you give to me and we reflect back and forth on each other, so thank you so much,” he said.

FYI: Jason is wearing Tom Ford.
