ⓘ 54th Primetime Emmy Awards

The 54th Primetime Emmy Awards were held on Sunday, September 22, 2002. Nominations were announced July 22, 2002. The ceremony was hosted by Conan OBrien and was broadcast on NBC. Two networks, FX and VH1, received their first major nominations this year. The program America: A Tribute to Heroes was simulcast on every major network and, therefore, is not designated with one below.

After four nominations during its first seven seasons, Friends won Outstanding Comedy Series without a directing and writing nomination. As of 2016, this is still the most recent period that a top-rated show won either major series award. Everybody Loves Raymond led all comedies with nine major nominations and three major wins. Meanwhile, after eight consecutive nominations including five consecutive wins for its first five seasons, Frasier was excluded from the Outstanding Comedy Series nomination for the first time. It would not be nominated for its final two seasons either.

For the third straight year, the drama field was conquered by The West Wing. In addition to winning its third consecutive trophy for Outstanding Drama Series, The West Wing achieved a milestone when it became the third series all dramas to gain nine acting nominations for its main cast members. This tied the mark set by Hill Street Blues in 1982 and later matched by L.A. Law in 1989. The West Wing also set a record with twelve total acting nominations when including the guest category, a category that existed for L.A. Law, but was not available for Hill Street Blues during its second season 1981–82 of nine acting nominations. Overall, The West Wing led all series in major nominations and wins with sixteen and four.

In addition, Stockard Channing joined an exclusive club of actors that have won two awards in one ceremony for different roles. Furthermore, Michael Chiklis became the second actor in a cable network series to win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series after James Gandolfini for The Sopranos in 2000 and 2001 for his performance as Vic Mackey in The Shield whilst becoming FXs first ever acting win.
