Who can forget the TV of the ’90s?

Shows like “NYPD Blue,” “Frasier,” “Mad About You” and “The X-Files” were just a few of the classics ruling primetime and leading the Emmy nominations during the decade.

To get ready for Sunday night’s Emmy Awards ceremony ― which features the most diverse list of nominees ever ― let us take a virtual trip back to 1997, a year of satin, sequins and Michelle Pfeiffer’s little round sunglasses. 

That year, “Frasier” took home top honors in the comedy category for the fourth year in a row, while “Law & Order” won for Outstanding Drama Series. In the acting categories, John Lithgow (“3rd Rock From the Sun”), Helen Hunt (“Mad About You”), Dennis Franz (“NYPD Blue”) and Gillian Anderson (“The X-Files”) took home golden trophies for their leading roles. 

To find out who will win big this year, tune into the Emmys on Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. In the meantime, though, revel in the glory of the ’97 show below:
