TheDailyBeast: TV’s Nastiest Contract Battles

James Gandolfini

"Sopranos" actor James Gandolfini was named outstanding actor in a drama series at the 2003 Screen Actors Guild Awards, marking the actor’s potential as a TV moneymaker. When accepting his award, he said, “Maybe there’s some stuff lately that makes me seem ungrateful, but HBO—I’d like to thank you for what you’ve done ... It is a great place to work,” he said. At the time, the star was partaking in a heated contract battle with HBO. He wanted $14 million a year for playing Tony Soprano, but the network wouldn’t offer him more than $11 million. After a public back-and-forth battle, the feud was resolved—with no change in the salary offer.
