For its second season, Will & Grace led all comedy series with three major wins, including Outstanding Comedy Series. Ally McBeal became the first defending champion, that wasn't cancelled or ended, that failed to be nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series since Get Smart in 1970.

The drama field was dominated by first year series The West Wing. In addition to winning Outstanding Drama Series, the series won five major awards total, leading all shows. Overall, when adding The West Wing's technical categories, it won nine awards in a single year, a record that stood until Game of Thrones received twelve awards for their fifth season in 2015. In addition, James Gandolfini became the first HBO actor to win the Lead Actor, Drama Emmy, for The Sopranos.
