Edie Falco got understandably choked up as she took the stage to remind the world that her "Sopranos" co-star James Gandolfini, who died of a heart attack while visiting Rome in June, was not Tony Soprano. "Jim was really quite different. He had tremendous warmth and heart. He was kind. He was uniquely generous," she said of the man who hated all the attention he got. "If you needed anything at all, ever, Jim was there to take care of it before you even had a chance to ask."
Edie's voice cracked as she was overcome with emotion toward the end of her tribute. "You all knew James Gandolfini the actor," she said. "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."
