Spader, age 61, started his career in 1978 with minor roles, but his breakthrough in Hollywood came in 1981 when he was a part of the popular movie Endless Love. 

Spader continued his movie journey, but his other roles did not bring much significance to his career until 1986.

In 1989, another breakthrough hit his career when he played a role in the movie Sex, Lies, and Videotape, for which he received the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival. 

His outstanding acting career is well acknowledged by audiences and critiques. This might be the reason why he is three times Emmy Awardee.
