ⓘ 57th Primetime Emmy Awards

The 57th Primetime Emmy Awards were held on Sunday, September 18, 2005 and was hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. The ceremony was broadcast on CBS. BBC America received its first major nomination this year.

The ceremony, which aired three weeks after Hurricane Katrina hit, featured a mini-telethon for Habitat for Humanity and gave DeGeneres more opportunity to use the ceremony to somberly remember the victims of the Gulf Coast. Opening the ceremony was the famous 1970s band Earth, Wind & Fire with a comedic version of "September", in collaboration with The Black Eyed Peas. The ceremony featured tributes to ABC-TV anchor Peter Jennings who died seven weeks earlier presented by rival anchors Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw, and to talk show host Johnny Carson who died on January 23, 2005 by close friend and Late Show host David Letterman. Also, the show featured Emmy Idol, five segments in which famous TV stars performed popular TV theme songs in a format like American Idol.

Everybody Loves Raymond became the first comedy to have its final season win the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series since Barney Miller in 1982. The CBS comedy series also tied for the lead in major nominations and wins with ten and three, respectively. Freshman series Desperate Housewives became just the second series to earn three nominations in a lead acting category, joining The Golden Girls which had three nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for four separate years. In the drama field, new series Lost won Outstanding Drama Series. Defending champion The Sopranos was on hiatus and had not aired any new episodes during the eligibility period.

Actress Angela Lansbury received her eighteenth and most recent nomination. However, she failed to win causing her record losing streak to be extended.
