Jason Sudeikis started the 27th annual SAG Awards with a bang.
The “Ted Lasso” actor kicked off the night in character with a cold open that saw him and the rest of the “Ted Lasso” cast huddle up in the locker room to prep for the big night.
Sudeikis and the cast joked about the tough shows they were up against for outstanding comedy ensemble before the award show officially kicked off.

“Thank you to all of my fellow actors, male and female,” Sudeikis said. “That means a lot to me — it really, really does. It’s very, very flattering, very humbling.”
He also thanked his mom “for bringing me to plays and musicals in Kansas City every time they came through,” and his dad “for taking me to go see movies.”
