James Spader

The award: Outstanding lead actor in a drama series, “Boston Legal” The speech: James Spader was as shocked as anyone to win the statue over Emmy favorite James Gandolfini, who was in his last year of eligibility for "The Sopranos." Spader called out for the help of earlier Emmy winner Elaine Stritch before griping about the failed theater-in-the-round setup of that year's show. The quote: “I feel like I just stole a pile of money from the mob."
