Millennium was an American crime-thriller television series which was broadcast between 1996 and 1999. Created by Chris Carter, the series aired on Fox for three seasons with a total of sixty-seven episodes. However, an episode of its sister show The X-Files—also titled "Millennium"—was later produced in order to give a sense of closure to the series.[1] Millennium starred Lance Henriksen, Megan Gallagher, Klea Scott, and Brittany Tiplady, with Henriksen and Tiplady earning award nominations for their roles.

Henriksen portrayed Frank Black, an offender profiler who worked for the Millennium Group, a private investigative organisation. Black retired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation to move his wife (Gallagher) and daughter (Tiplady) to Seattle, where he began to consult on criminal cases for the Group. After his wife's death, he returned to the FBI to work with new partner Emma Hollis (Scott) to discredit the Group.

Since its 1996 debut, Millennium has received several awards, including four American Society of Cinematographers Awards, two Primetime Emmy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, one People's Choice Award, and five Young Artist Awards. In its three-year tenure, the series earned a total of twenty-one award nominations. Cinematographer Robert McLachlan and actress Brittany Tiplady providing the series' only individual wins, while the first season episode "Broken World" earned its only episodic win. A 1997 People's Choice Award for Favourite New TV Dramatic Series was the only award won by the series as a whole.

American Society of Cinematographers[edit]

Millennium was nominated for four American Society of Cinematographers awards, without winning any of them.
