Gillian Anderson's Emmy Acceptance Speech
September 14, 1997

"I feel so honored that you are presenting me with this award because I have been such a huge fan of yours for so many years and, um... I'm more nervous about this right now than I am about getting up here. Um... um... I need to thank my, um, my family. My mom and my dad and I have a younger brother and sister, Aaron and Zoe, who are so wonderfully normal about this whole celebrity thing. They don't brag, they just, they, they, I'm still their big sis. And you know what, sometimes I want to shake them and say "Don't you know who I am?" That was a joke. Um, um, but all of my family - I'm just going to give you a list of names - Bob, Marilyn, Mary Jo, um Michael, John, Gramma Grampa Lee Judy um Marlice Stu Patty um Giesela Dixie um um Rosenjorgen and... um... everybody else... um... Thank you for allowing me my mistakes, for allowing me, um, to falter in my growth, for allowing me to slip into the void of production for long periods of time, knowing that eventually i will surface and be present again. Thank you immeasurably for that, for that understanding, the support and the unconditional love. I love you all, and I thank you for this."

The Text From The Ad In The Hollywood Reporter

"I would like to sincerely thank Chris Carter,
my dear friend and creator of "The X-Files".
Your genius and continued
support have been invaluable to me.

My special thanks to David Duchovny.
Your talent has always inspired me -
without YOUR "Mulder" there would be no "Scully".

Finally, thanks and congratulations
to the entire Cast and Crew.
Your creativity and perseverence have lifted the show
to its remarkable success."
