The 52nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were held Sunday, September 10, 2000. The awards show was hosted by Garry Shandling and was broadcast on ABC. Nominees are listed below; winners are in bold. Two networks, Bravo and The WB, received their first major nominations. This remains the only year in which a show from The WB or its descendants received a major nomination.

For its second season, Will & Grace won Outstanding Comedy Series and led all comedy series with three major wins overall. Ally McBeal became the first defending champion, that wasn't cancelled or ended, that failed to be nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series since Get Smart in 1970.

The drama field was dominated by first year series The West Wing. In addition to winning Outstanding Drama Series it won five major awards total, leading all shows. When adding The West Wing 's technical categories it won nine awards, a record that still stands.
