Jason Sudeikis' titular role in Ted Lasso has warmed so many hearts that the show, which is a hot favourite this awards season as well, that the lead actor has taken the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for second time in a row. 

When Jason walked up on stage, he joked about how his mother watches award shows but he "didn't think I had a chance", before adding, "I am not overtly prepared. Thank you, my parents. I am truly truly suprised and flattered." He then went on to thank the cast and crew, the fans who have "digged it" as much as they did, Apple TV and Warner Bros.

The Emmy Awards 2022 is the one of the first major award shows to happen this year to happen in a more 'normal' setting since the pandemic hit us back in 2020.

As reported by ABC News, it was a full show at the red carpet this year with the entire ceremony taking place indoors like it used to and in front of a full studio audience at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. 

Interestingly, it is also the first major Emmys is being broadcasted live since Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards.

Host Kenan Thompson, who is also marking his debut as emcee of the Emmys, joked in his opening monologue about how Zendaya cannot date Leonardo DiCaprio as she recently turned 26, and took multiple digs at streaming giant Netflix for losing subscribers.
