Ted Lasso show and CODA film win Big at Critics Choice Awards, BAFTAs

Apple TV+ scored big wins at two awards ceremonies over the weekend – Ted Lasso dominates the Critics Choice Awards, and CODA scooping up a pair of BAFTA Film awards.

Ted Lasso

The 27th Annual Critics Choice Awards ceremony held on Sunday saw Apple TV+ continue its winning streak from last year’s awards. The Ted Lasso comedy show managed to improve on its 2021 results by capturing four awards, including Best Comedy Series.

Jason Sudeikis has once again won the award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series for playing the lead character. Hannah Waddingham also repeated her 2021 success, receiving Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for portraying Rebecca Welton.

The fourth award went to Brett Goldstein, which is Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

CODA

Another Apple TV+ film gained a Critics Choice Award. CODA, the three-time Academy Award-nominated film with a predominantly deaf cast, also secured an award.

Troy Kotsur, who plays dad Frank Rossi in the film, won Best Supporting Actor.

Additionally, the 2022 EE British Academy Film (BAFTA) Awards also honored CODA twice at their ceremony on Sunday.

Kotsur won the award for Best Supporting Actor for the role, making him the very first deaf actor to win a BAFTA in the category.

Director and writer Sian Heder was also honored with an award for Best Adapted Screenplay for CODA.

 

Both Apple TV+ hits Ted Lasso and CODA have enjoyed immense success during the awards season, including wins at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards, Film Independent Spirit Awards, and a huge number of nominations.
