Emmys 2021: ‘Ted Lasso’’s Brett Goldstein wins Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

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.
