Frasier won its second consecutive Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series and led all shows with five major wins. For the second straight year, a freshman drama series came into the ceremony with a bevy of major nominations, but failed to win for Outstanding Drama Series. ER led all shows with 15 major nominations and won three major awards, but lost the top prize to NYPD Blue, which was in a similar situation to ER the previous year.

Candice Bergen's win for the seventh season of Murphy Brown made her the third performer to win five Emmys for playing the same character. She declined to be submitted for any future seasons of the show.

Marvin Hamlisch's win made him the sixth person to become an EGOT.
