"Ted Lasso" (Colin Hutton/AppleTV+) The cast and producers of Apple’s "Ted Lasso" scored a major W during July 13’s Emmy nominations and broke a record in the process .

With its 20 nominations, "Ted Lasso" became the most nominated freshman comedy in Emmy history, besting the 19 nominations "Glee" earned in 2010 for its first season.

The nods earned by "Ted Lasso" included best comedy, best lead actor (Jason Sudeikis) and a number of accolades for the show’s supporting cast.

Hannah Waddingham, Juno Temple, Brendan Hunt, Brett Goldstein, Jeremy Swift and Nick Mohammed all received nominations for their performances. (Yes, there’s a four-way "Ted Lasso" race in outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series.)

"Getting nominated for an acting Emmy is as thrilling as it is surprising," said Hunt, who also shares two writing nominations with fellow writers Sudeikis, Joe Kelly and Bill Lawrence. "Not only was this kind of thing never something I was planning or pining for, but also I’m not even the "best supporting actor" on my own show. I am appreciative of, and humbled by, this recognition; but far more appreciative that so many of my castmates have received the same. We’re a team, but maybe we’re a team with a deep bench."

The show also received two nominations for comedy series editing, one for best casting and three for outstanding directing for a comedy series. One of the directing nominations went to actor and director Zach Braff.

"I’m so honored and happy about this," Braff wrote on Twitter.
