‘Ted Lasso’ costars Juno Temple and Hannah Waddingham poised to make SAG Awards history

Ted Lasso” is on the verge of making history at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Hannah Waddingham, who won the Emmy for Best Comedy Supporting Actress in September, is widely predicted to earn a nomination at the upcoming SAG Awards in the catch-all Comedy Actress category, and one of her costars might join her. Juno Temple could also be individually nominated by SAG. That double play would make “Ted Lasso” the first show to have true multiple supporting actresses contending in this category.

The closest previous example of comedy “supporting” actresses earning nominations together at SAG is in 2012, when Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara earned individual bids for “Modern Family.” However, both were more or less leads of their show, they just chose to submit in supporting with the rest of their cast at the Emmys. Meanwhile, “Ted Lasso” has a clear lead in Jason Sudeikis, who has far more screen time than either Temple or Waddingham.

Waddingham, who plays Rebecca on the Apple TV+ series, sits comfortably in second place in our latest Comedy Actress odds. Temple, who plays Keeley, is in eighth place, though her odds are currently rising. If recent SAG trends are to be believed, when voters fall for a show, they tend to shower it with nominations as “Schitt’s Creek,” “Dead to Me,” “The Crown” and “Ozark” did last year.

It would be fitting if Temple does indeed earn a nomination alongside Waddingham, considering the crackling chemistry they share on the series. Both on and offscreen, they are each other’s biggest cheerleaders, with Waddingham even shouting out Temple in her Emmy speech, saying “There’s no Rebecca without Keeley.” SAG voters might just feel the same way.
