After scooping up a Golden Globe and a SAG Award for his titular role as an underdog coach in Apple TV+’s breakout comedy Ted Lasso, Jason Sudeikis is setting his sights on what would be his first-ever Emmy nomination.
And make no mistake — the Saturday Night Live vet is gonna get one.
What’s more, given the relative lack of formidable competition in the Lead Actor in a Comedy Series race, there is every reason to believe he will bring home the gold in September.
But don’t let his frontrunner status detract from the fact that Sudeikis deserves all the kudos love coming his way — hence his inclusion on our Dream Emmy short list.
Scroll through the list below to review all seven of our Dream Nominees (remember, these aren’t predictions; they’re wish lists) and then tell us if our picks warrant a “Hell, yes!,” “Um, no” or “How could you leave off so-and-so?!”
For the record, 2021 Emmy nominations will be voted on from June 17-28, and unveiled on July 13. The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony is scheduled to air on Sunday, Sept. 19 on CBS.
