Another year, another run of nominations and awards for “Ted Lasso” and its star, Kansas City’s own Jason Sudeikis.

You may recall that the first season of the warmhearted comedy — about a Kansas football coach transplanted to coach a British soccer club — cleaned up during awards season last year, culminating in 20 Emmy Award nominations and seven wins.

Now season two is starting 2022 strong.

Golden Globes: Racked by scandals over ethics and lack of diversity, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association couldn’t find a TV home to present its awards Jan. 9. So it did so via Twitter. Sudeikis won best actor in a comedy or musical series (but HBO’s “Hacks” won best comedy series — go figure).

Screen Actors Guild: “Ted Lasso” tied with the HBO drama “Succession” last week for the most nominations: five, including best comedy ensemble. Sudeikis and co-star Brett Goldstein will both compete for best actor in a comedy, while Juno Temple and Hannah Wassingham are both up for best actress in a comedy. The ceremony is scheduled to air at 7 p.m. Feb. 27 on TNT and TBS.

Critics Choice Awards: “Ted Lasso” is up for best comedy series, actor (Sudeikis), supporting actor (Goldstein) and supporting actress (Waddingham). The awards had been scheduled for Jan. 9, but the pandemic pushed off the ceremony to 6 p.m. March 13 on the CW and TBS.

Writers Guild of America: In the nominations announced last week, “Ted Lasso” is up for best comedy series. Awards will be presented March 20.

Coming up: Directors Guild of America nominations will be announced Jan. 26, and awards will be presented March 12. Producers Guild of America nominations will be announced Jan. 27, and awards will be presented Feb. 26.

As for the third and (probably) final season of “Ted Lasso,” filming is set to start on Valentine’s Day — as Waddingham said on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” last month. Expect it to debut this summer. In the meantime, seasons one and two are on Apple TV+.
