Friends has become of the world's dearest sitcoms, but nobody could have anticipated its large-scale success when it premiered in 1994. However, it was popular, even with the critics, from the show's first season. At the 1995 Emmys, Friends was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series after its first season, and although it didn't win, cast mates Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry were simply happy to have been in contention for the award.
