Jason Sudeikis took home another award for his work in Apple+ series Ted Lasso, and gave a special shoutout to his ex Olivia Wilde during his speech.

The show swept away all three awards it was nominated for at the Critic's Choice Awards on Sunday night, including best actor in a comedy series for Sudeikis. In his acceptance speech, the actor thanked his two children, as well as Wilde.

"I want to thank my kids, Otis and Daisy," he said. "I want to thank their mom Olivia, who had the initial idea to do this as a TV show, saying, 'You and Brendan [Hunt] and Joe [Kelly] like doing that so much, you should do it as a movie or TV show.' ... She was right."

Wilde responded on Twitter, congratulating Sudeikis and his Ted Lasso colleagues, and even throwing in a joke about the now-viral hoodie he wore to the Golden Globes.

"Congrats to Jason and the entire Ted Lasso family on your @CriticsChoice wins!" she wrote. "So happy for you guys. I hope this means we all keep wearing hoodies when the ceremonies are in person next year."

Last month, a source spoke out on Wilde and Sudeikis's friendship after the Booksmart director has been linked to Harry Styles.

"Jason was initially really hurt about Harry and Olivia's relationship, but now that he's doing his own thing, things between him and Olivia have gotten better," the source said. "They're rebuilding their friendship again and co-parenting together."
