The 54th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were held Sunday, September 22, 2002. Nominations were announced July 22, 2002.[1] The awards show was hosted by Conan O'Brien [2] and was broadcast on NBC. Nominees and winners are listed below, winners are in bold. 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.

It took Friends eight years to earn the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, this marks the most recent time that the top rated show won either major series award. Everybody Loves Raymond led all comedies with three major wins.

For the third straight year, the drama field was dispatched by The West Wing. In addition to winning its third straight Outstanding Drama Series, The West Wing achieved a milestone on the night. It became the third show (all dramas) to gain nine acting nominations for 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 had 12 total acting nominations when including the guest category, however, while this category did exist for L.A. Law, it was not around during the Hill Street Blues era. The West Wing led all shows in major wins and nominations with four and 16 respectively.

Actress Stockard Channing joined the exclusive club of actors that have won two Emmys in one ceremony, for different roles.
