A Very Calm, Comfortable, And Relaxed Jason Sudeikis Became A Moment From Last Night’s Golden Globes

March 1, 2021 / Posted by:

The Golden Globe Awards are usually ripe with messiness, mostly due to the fact that a good number of nominees, presenters, and winners are drunk off their asses by Hour 2. But last night’s ceremony was a bit different, with most attendees attending from home, in an attempt to maintain proper COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Still, some famous people dressed up and others, like Jason Sudeikis, really leaned into the whole “Mandatory remote work event” angle of the evening and didn’t sweat the small stuff. The only sweating happening might have been on the inside of the sweatshirt he decided to wear when accepting his first Golden Globe last night. Because generally, Jason Sudeikis’ entire mood was pretty chill and some thought he was high.

Jason took home the award for Best Actor in a TV Series – Musical or Comedy, for playing Ted Lasso, the titular role of the Apple TV+ series, Ted Lasso. This was Jason’s first Golden Globe Award nomination, and his first win, and judging by the vibe he was giving off during his acceptance speech, the first time he’d been required to put on pants in his living room in the past 11 months. Jason was nominated in a category alongside Don Cheadle (Black Monday), Nicholas Hoult (The Great), Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek), and Ramy Youssef (Ramy), all of whom appeared from their respective living rooms in a variety of jacket choices ranging from casual to formal. But it was Jason who won the hearts of every comfort-prioritizing viewer at home by thanking the HFPA in a tie-dyed sweatshirt from NYC wellness and dance studio Forward Space:

Jason sort of rambled a bit with his speech, as acknowledged by Don Cheadle, who became a one-man “Wrap it up” orchestra swell in an attempt to keep Jason from going over the 2-minute mark. And there’s a chance that could have potentially happened because at one point Jason gave a little book report on The Three Questions by Leo Tolstoy while talking about the people who make him a better actor. And I’m sure no one would have batted a single eye if Jason eventually transitioned that into an existential question about if life is just one big acting rehearsal, man. Because a whole bunch of people on Twitter thought he was stoned:

For anyone still wondering what was going on, I’ll happily submit this post-win interview as a further clue:

Any internet detective needs to look no further than this moment of Jason learning the age of Norman Lear, recipient of the Carol Burnett Award:

I’m not saying Jason Sudeikis is stoned, but it looks like the camera cut away right before he started trying to count to 99 on his fingers, having to restart after one, because he keeps getting distracted. “One…wow, just like how my ex is dating one of the One Directions. Wait, where was I? Oh yeah, one…
