20 years ago television looked very different.
No one had ever heard of a streaming service, we used TiVo to record our favorite shows and a group of friends ruled the airwaves.
At the 2002 Primetime Emmy Awards, The West Wing took home their third of four straight wins for Outstanding Drama Series Everybody Loves Raymond’s Doris Roberts won her first of three consecutive trophies for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Oprah Winfrey took home the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award and Friends won its first – and only! – Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.
Fresh off the season 1 finale of American Idol and season 1 of The Osbournes, the night also held meaning as reality stars and the best and brightest from the world of scripted television mingled and mingled like never before.
Of course, when we talk about the Emmys, we also have to talk about fashion. It was a red carpet showcasing some daring fashion choices, some baby-faced A-listers and some couples that sadly haven’t stood the test of time.
