Kevin Spacey was the toast of New York at a Museum of the Moving Image gala celebrating the actor Wednesday night.
The two-time Oscar winner delivered a funny, touching speech at the 28th annual salute, filled with anecdotes about The Usual Suspects and Jack Lemmon, among other stories, along with Spacey's impressions of Lemmon and Bill Clinton.
Before Spacey accepted his award, a glass bowl that he pretended to bobble as if he were going to drop the fragile prize, many of his famous colleagues paid tribute to the actor.
Samuel L. Jackson, Denis Leary, Spacey's producing partner Dana Brunetti, House of Cards creator Beau Willimon, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, Kate Bosworth and Penn Badgley all turned out to support Spacey and say a few words on his behalf.
Later, Spacey weighed in on their remarks, sharing stories about working with them and the many clips of his work that were shown throughout the evening.
"I haven't seen most of those f---ng clips since the like screening of those movies when they first came out," Spacey said during his f-word-filled speech. "And so, I'm having kind of a 'Wow, I haven't seen that f--ing scene in … 25 years.'"
