The 45th Primetime Emmy Awards were held on Sunday, September 19, 1993. The ceremony was broadcast on ABC. It was hosted by Angela Lansbury. MTV received its first major nomination at this ceremony.

For its fourth season Seinfeld won its first, and only, Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. Cheers was once again nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, it was nominated for all eleven years that it ran, and won four times. This tied the record set by M*A*S*H which also went 11/11, but only won once.

On the drama side, Northern Exposure was the defending champion and was seen as the heavy favorite as it came into the ceremony as the most nominated show with 11 major nominations. But in a major upset Picket Fences took home Outstanding Drama Series. Northern Exposure set the dubious record for the largest shutout of all time, as it lost all 11 major nominations. Including its Creative Arts nominations the record increases to 0/16. Both of these records were later broken.
