Ted Lasso’s Brett Goldstein tries not to swear — and fails! — on Repeat Emmys Win

Brett Goldstein won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday night.

On receiving his award for his performance on Ted LassoGoldstein, 42, began by saying, “I’m pretty good at trying not to swear.”

He thanked writer Joe Kelly for “creating this magical thing and leaving me a little part of it.”

Goldstein continued: “I’ll never take it for granted, it’s incredible.”

He then went on to say that “the hardest part of being in Ted Lasso is to be in a scene with any of this cast and not ruin the shot just by looking at them and saying “Oh my god, you’re good.” “

Goldstein then revisited his original vow by explaining that the last time he was on stage he was told not to swear — and he didn’t listen. This time, he stuck to old habits.

“Last time I was here I was told not to swear and I did and I’m sorry but that meant the power went out at home in the UK so my family never heard me say it so thank you for that second luck,” the actor said before calling out to his family – and slipping into a blizzard.

Other nominees in the category were Anthony Carrigan (Barry), Bowen Young (Saturday night live), Henry Winkler (Barry), Nick Muhammad (Ted Lasso), Toheeb Jimoh (Ted Lasso), Tony Shalhoub (The Wonderful Mrs. Maisel) and Tyler James Williams (Abbott Elementary).

Goldstein plays the irascible, but lovable, now-retired football player Roy Kent on Apple TV series.

The series follows the eponymous character Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) as he transitions from an American football coach to managing an English football (soccer) team, played by Goldstein’s character.

The series, which is currently filming its third and final season, also stars Hannah Waddingham, Juno Temple, Nick Mohammed, Jeremy Swift, Phil Dunster, Brendan Hunt, Sarah Niles and Toheeb Jimoh. (Mohammed and Jimoh were both nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category, and the show is up for 20 Emmy nominations after sweeping last year’s ceremony.)

Since Goldstein has taken on the fan-favorite role, he has earned critical acclaim. Monday’s award marks the second year in a row that he has taken home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, after winning it last year as a first-time Emmy nominee.

Goldstein didn’t start his hit comedy gig as an actor. Instead, the star began as a writer on the show, but began to feel a connection with Roy Kent as an actor.

He filmed five scenes and submitted an unsolicited audition, he previously told PEOPLE.

“My personal favorite is the scene where Roy is [parking lot] in episode 5 and is behind Keeley [Temple] and accidentally scares her with her car. I think that might have been what sealed the deal,” Goldstein shared. “That or [Jason and co-creator Joe Kelley] I couldn’t be bothered to keep looking.”
