Last night marked the 59th Anniversary of the Emmy Awards. And the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles was packed by Hollywood’s A-list to see who won what. And “The Sopranos” walked away with three awards, including the coveted “Outstanding Drama Series” honors.
The now-defunct HBO series was lucky to win the award, as it rarely goes to a show that has been canceled. Tony and the gang also snagged trophies for “Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series” and “Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series.”
And the cast and crew couldn’t be happier. Creator David Chase gave all the credit to the men and women who brought the characters to life.
He told press, "This amazing cast is what it came down to. It really is all about them." What’s unbelievable is that five cast members were nominated for individual Emmys, and none of them emerged victorious in their categories.
“Boston Legal” star James Spader beat James Gandolfini in the “Outstanding Lead Actor” category, a move that surprised a lot of people. But he kept it light hearted. “I feel like I just stole a pile of money from the mob," said Spader, accepting his award.
