James Gandolfini Emmys Tribute: Edie Falco Gives Teary Speech For 'Sopranos' Co-Star (VIDEO)

James Gandolfini got a special spotlight tribute at the 2013 Emmys from his "Sopranos" co-star Edie Falco.

"You all knew James Gandolfini the actor. I was lucky enough to know Jim the man. For 10 years as his close colleague and his pretend life-partner, and for many more years as his friend. And it’s Jim, the man, the very dear man, that I will miss most of all," a teary Falco said.

Gandolfini passed away in June 2013.

The Emmys also paid tribute to "Glee's" Cory Monteith, "All In The Family" star Jean Stapleton, "Family Ties" creator Gary David Goldberg, Jonathan Winters and several other beloved TV players.
