During a night filled with what feels like a bit of inconsiderate pomp and extravagance during a pandemic, some relatability is always appreciated. That’s why Jason Sudeikis’s ruffled, “Oh, do we need the camera on for this Zoom meeting?” look endeared the actor to me almost as much as his award-winning role as Coach Ted Lasso on the Apple comedy series.
During the Golden Globes on Sunday evening, the star appeared onscreen via video chat dressed in a tie-dye sweatshirt (which he wore in support of his sister’s dance studio and workout space) with five o’clock shadow and a general air of someone who was not expecting to be put on the spot. His acceptance speech was so long-winded that it made almost no sense — so much so that fellow nominee Don Cheadle, star of Showtime’s Black Monday, gestured for him to wrap it up! If that doesn’t sound like every time you were asked to say a few words during a presentation where you had nothing planned, I envy your preparedness.
The award for best actor in a comedy was Sudeikis’s first-ever nomination and win. Appropriately, it’s for his portrayal of the titular American football coach who’s on the brink of a divorce and journeys to Britain to coach for a Premier League team. He’s the sweetest man that’s ever lived, and he’s emotionally at the end of his rope — a vibe that Sudeikis was giving off during his speech. It’s more likely that the actor was suffering from severe jet-lag or up late working on the upcoming second season of Ted Lasso, but still, his vibe was enough to remind me of many times in life when I was one minute away from saying “f*ck it,” and wandering back to my bed for a good nap. In honor of Sudeikis’s win, we’ve come up with 13 situations where we’ve felt the same and hope that he knows how much we cherish this bit of laughter he gave us tonight.
