OMG, even James Spader looked embarrassed but proved himself a class act

How could Emmy voters pick any one other than James Gandolfini for Jamesgandolfini lead actor in a drama this past season.

After the perf Gandolfini turned in on “Sopranos?” How in the world could this happen. “Brought the proceedings to a screeching halt,” sez my neighbor Stuart Levine. Well said. “It’s the Emmy’s equivalent of the blackout at the end of the ‘Sopranos’ finale. It’s the thing everyone will be talking about tomorrow,” sez my other neighbor, Variety’s David Cohen.

But in all fairness, Spader proved himself to be nothing but classy when he came backstage. “I thought it could’ve been anybody but me,” he said. “I really was sort of dazed and confused while up there. I had not prepared much to say. I just didn’t think it was going to happen tonight…I was pleased to be nominated and most importantly pleased that the show was nominated (for best drama), because I never really knew what category we would be nominated in unless they created a category, ‘What the hell is this?'”
