After collecting the first award of the night, Ted Lasso kept the momentum going with Brett Goldstein, who plays the cantankerous Roy Kent, picking up the night’s second award — Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
“I was very, very specifically told I’m not allowed to swear,” he started off his speech before paying homage to his foul-mouthed character by letting out a loud bleep.
“It has been one of the greatest honors, privileges, and privileges, I just said that twice… but it is a double privilege. It is the most privilege privilege and pleasure of my life,” the 41-year-old actor expressed. “This is [profanity] thank you very much, thank you, thank you!”
Like Hannah Waddingham, who was pitted against her fellow Lasso co-star, Goldstein was in a tight race with his two colleagues — Brendan Hunt and Nick Mohammed, who respectively play Coach Beard and Nate.
