“Friends” finally has a few in the TV Academy.

The NBC sitcom, with only three previous noms and no series wins in its past eight seasons, took home the award for comedy series at the 54th annual Emmy Awards Sunday night, while “The West Wing” flew home with the drama trophy for the third year in a row.

Not only did “Friends” win the top prize, but Jennifer Aniston picked up the trophy for actress in a comedy.

The Peacock and HBO duked it out for the most honors and settled for a tie — at 24 apiece — counting wins from the Creative Arts Emmys on Sept. 14. No other network even came close: CBS took eight awards overall for third place, followed by Fox (seven) A&E (six) and ABC (five).

As for the major categories, NBC won nine Emmys Sunday night, compared to HBO’s seven.

Overall, the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games’ “Opening Ceremony” took seven awards, the most of any program, followed by six for “Six Feet Under” and the HBO mini “Band of Brothers.”

In the acting categories, kudocast viewers saw a lot of faces on stage they’re not used to seeing clutching an Emmy award.

Besides Aniston, “Everybody Loves Raymond” star Ray Romano and “The Shield” main man Michael Chiklis all landed their first-ever Emmy trophy to their own big surprise — or relief.

Chiklis’ win, for his role as Det. Vic Mackey in FX’s freshman series “The Shield,” wound up the biggest surprise of Emmy night.

“Friends” had what was considered one of its strongest seasons ever; its slightly more dramatic turn this past season — including the storyline revolving around Rachel’s (Aniston) pregnancy — clearly paid off.

The Emmy gives the show some added juice as it launches its ninth (and presumably final) year. The win will surely also give the Peacock and studio Warner Bros. Television renewed vigor in the attempt to convince the show’s cast and exec producers Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane to return for yet another season.

“This is so amazing, after eight years and the last three hours and 10 minutes,” Crane said. “This is so worth the wait.”

NBC and Warner Bros. also landed the top drama prize with their “West Wing.” The show beat HBO’s “Six Feet Under,” which led all nominees with 23 and took home six.

“We’re just as surprised as you are,” said “West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin. “Alan Ball and the guys from ‘Six Feet Under’ — if I was half a man, I’d ‘Ving Rhames’ this thing right over to you, but I think we know that’s not going to happen.”

“Band of Brothers,” nominated for 19 Emmys this year, didn’t disappoint. The Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg collaboration won six awards, including this year’s miniseries Emmy.

“We didn’t just win this,” Spielberg said. “The men of Easy Company won this in 1944.”

Eight of the World War II-era drama’s helmers, including Hanks, also took the award for directing a mini or movie.

“All we did was bring to fiction what happened in history,” Hanks said. “It is our great pleasure.”

Chiklis was visibly shaken as he beat out “The West Wing’s” Martin Sheen, “24’s” Kiefer Sutherland and “Six Feet Under’s” Michael C. Hall and Peter Krause.

“I’m a dreamer, like everyone in this room,” Chiklis said. “We all have a little place inside of us where we allow ourselves to secretly dream of a moment like this.”

Aniston, meanwhile, was the first “Friend” to be rewarded by the cast members’ joint decision to submit themselves for the actor/actress, rather than supporting actor/actress, categories. In the past, the show had seen only one win for the regulars, with a supporting-actress win for Lisa Kudrow a few years back.

“This has been the greatest nine years of my entire life,” said Aniston, who beat Patricia Heaton (“Everybody Loves Raymond”), Jane Kaczmarek (“Malcolm in the Middle”), Sarah Jessica Parker (“Sex and the City”) and Debra Messing (“Will & Grace”).

In his fourth try as a nominee for actor in a comedy series, “Raymond’s” Ray Romano finally felt some love from the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences. Romano beat out three-time winner Kelsey Grammer (“Frasier”) and three first-time nominees: “Friends'” Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry and “Bernie Mac Show’s” Bernie Mac.

“I love my wife, who this morning said to me, ‘I hope you win … But if you go up and say you love me, don’t think it makes up for never saying it when we’re alone together,” Romano quipped.

Meanwhile, apparently everyone loves “Raymond’s” supporting players. Brad Garrett, who plays Romano’s long-suffering brother on the hit CBS laffer, also picked up his first Emmy.

“Whaddyuh think, Ray?” said Garrett, who took home the Emmy for supporting actor in a comedy. (To which Romano answered, picking up his own award later in the evening, ‘I think mine’s bigger, Brad!’)

“I just hope that this award breaks the door for Jewish people trying to get into show business,” Garrett joked.

“Raymond’s” Doris Roberts, meanwhile, repeated her win last year for supporting actress in a comedy — her third Emmy in the category. “This is what happens when you’re young and sexy,” said Roberts, who made headlines recently after she accused the entertainment industry of ageism.

Allison Janney, who’d previously been honored in the supporting actress category for “Wing,” won in her first bid in the leading actress category for the series.

On the drama side, for the third year in a row, “West Wing” dominated the supporting actor and actress categories.

The supporting actor award has also become a revolving door of sorts, as the Academy seems determined to eventually award each of the show’s thesps. “West Wing” chief of staff John Spencer took the trophy this year, his first Emmy after three tries. He beat out co-workers Bradley Whitford, who won last year, and Richard Schiff, who picked up the award in 2000.

“I serve at the genius and the art of (‘West Wing’ creator) Aaron Sorkin, one of the greatest writers of all time,” Spencer said. Stockard Channing took over the reins as supporting actress, her first Emmy.

Channing, who also won an Emmy Sunday for supporting actress in a miniseries or telepic (for “The Matthew Shepard Story”), echoed Spencer’s tribute to Sorkin.

“I have to thank the sexiest man in Hollywood, Aaron Sorkin,” she said.

Frosh Fox laffer “Bernie Mac” made some waves, as exec producer Larry Wilmore bested long-established entries such as “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Sex and the City” (as well as newcomer “Andy Richter Controls the Universe”) for comedy writing.

Fox also took the drama writing award, as the show’s “24” and its Robert Cochrane and Joel Surnow won for penning the show’s pilot.

“I feel like Halle Barry,” joked Wilmore, one of primetime comedy’s few black executive producers. “This is unreal — this is not supposed to happen in your first season. It was such a dream come true to do this show.”

While his series didn’t take the top prize or acting categories, “Six Feet Under” creator Alan Ball didn’t go home empty-handed. Ball won the directing in a drama award for helming “Six Feet Under’s” pilot.

Although “Sex and the City” — last year’s comedy winner — didn’t repeat its series win, the show’s exec producer Michael Patrick King won for directing in a comedy.

“I never thought I would even admit to having a sex life, let alone getting a prize for it,” King said. ” ‘Sex and the City’ is a joy.”

In the world of made-for-television movies, HBO’s “The Gathering Storm” cleaned up, picking up three trophies, including best telepic; Albert Finney, for lead actor in a miniseries or movie; and Larry Ramin and Hugh Whitemore for writing for a mini, movie or drama special.

Besides “Matthew Shepard Story’s” Channing, other telepic winners included Showtime’s “Wild Iris,” which landed star Laura Linney her first Emmy, for lead actress in a miniseries or movie.

Given the gravitas surrounding last September’s multi-network “America: A Tribute to Heroes” (and the honorary Emmy given the web for their part in the special), it’s probably no surprise that the landmark special won the trophy for variety, music or comedy special.

But the all-star telethon was shut out of other major categories, including directing for a variety, music or comedy program, which went to the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Winter Games Opening Ceremony.

The special also lost the writing for a variety, music or comedy program award, which was given to the writing staff of “Saturday Night Live.” (“SNL” beat out last year’s winner, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”)

On the variety, music or comedy series front, “Late Show with David Letterman” continued its dominance, bringing home the Emmy for the fifth consecutive year.

“We’ve all worked for Dave forever, which I think shows what kind of man Dave is, that he inspires that kind of loyalty,” said “Late Show” exec producer Barbara Gaines.

And crooner Sting can add an Emmy to his mantle, having won the award for individual performance in a variety or music program — his first-ever nomination in TV land.

And the 2002 Emmy winners are . . . – Winners are marked in red.
