Primetime Emmy nominations were announced this week, and Ted Lasso of Apple TV+ received an impressive 20 nominations, including Brett Goldstein for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. The actor took to his Twitter account to celebrate the award nomination in the best possible Roy Kent manner, offensively noting that he was included in the “knockout list.”
Goldstein became a breakout star thanks to his role as Roy Kent in Ted Lasso, even rivaling Sudeikis’ charming enough performance as the titular coach to become the favorite character of the series. Some viewers even began to put forward a strange theory that Goldstein was not a real person, but rather created by computer graphics, to which Goldstein himself boldly responded by shooting him, even answering in the most Roy-Kent style that this theory was “f—-ng the load of crazy s-t”. Even before his new Emmy nomination, Goldstein showed how closely he and Roy are connected in real life when he struggled not to swear while accepting his Emmy win for Ted Lasso in the first season.
