Candice Bergen

The award: Outstanding lead actress in a comedy series, “Murphy Brown" The speech: When Candice Bergen won in 1992, her show was under scrutiny thanks to then-Vice President Dan Quayle, who cited the show as an example of pop culture's contribution to the country's "poverty of values." However, Bergen had the last laugh when she referenced Quayle's infamous spelling woes in her speech. The quote: “I'd like thank the vice president and our show's writers for their great words and for spelling them correctly."
