It’s the one with all the Emmy nominations!

For 10 years, the cast, writers, and all the other super-talented crew members of Friends made audiences laugh, cry, drink coffee (apparently), and use a bundle of catch phrases and hand gestures regularly still years later. PIVOT! Over the course of its run between 1994 and 2004, the show was nominated for a staggering 62 Primetime Emmy awards. It was robbed won six.

Among those six, though, were Jennifer Aniston for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2002 and Lisa Kudrow for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 1998. The show picked up its only Best Comedy Series win in 2002 as well, and, aside from Courteney Cox, every other member of the core cast (Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer) was nominated at some point.

With its roster of top-notch guest stars, the NBC series also was regularly nominated in the Outstanding Guest Actor/Actress in a Comedy Series category, which Bruce Willis and Christina Applegate won in 2000 and 2003, respectively. Even the theme song got a nomination for best Main Title Theme in 1995 — way to be there for us, Michael Skloff (composer) and Allee Willis (lyricist)!
