Pre-Emmy Weekend Festivities

| November 19, 2018 | Parties

Ahead of the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, Los Angeles was buzzing with the biggest bashes of the weekend: Audi, BAFTA, Variety, Entertainment Weekly, LA Confidential and Wanderluxxe’s glitzy fetes.

THE PARTIES Pre-Emmy weekend is always a celebratory affair, and this year was no exception. At Variety’s bash, Jenna Dewan danced her way around Cecconi’s, and at Entertainment Weekly’s Sunset Tower party, Arielle Kebbel snapped a selfie on a gold swing. The hotel’s addictive french fries were a hit, naturally. THE SCENE Audi’s pre-Emmy event kicked off the weekend at Kimpton La Peer Hotel, where Issa Rae, Jeremy Wright and Adina Porter cozied up for a photo op by the pool. Thandie Newton strolled inside the BAFTA LA Tea Party at The Beverly Hilton before enjoying Champagne alongside Westworld co-star Angela Sarafyan. The La Peer reignited at LA Confidential’s bash, where September cover star Elisabeth Moss hung out with friends poolside. THE HIGHLIGHTS Glow stars Jackie Tohn and Ellen Wong hugged it out at Wanderluxxe’s Diversity Honoree Luncheon at Craig’s. At Variety’s soiree, Troye Sivan hit the stage, telling the crowd, “If you’re here tonight, it means you’re either nominated for an Emmy, or at least you know someone who’s nominated for an Emmy, and that’s pretty cool.” -Brandi Fowler
