LOS ANGELES The Primetime Emmy awards wrapped Sunday night at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live. And afterward, the swirl of activity on the party landscape looked a bit different this year, with major player Entertainment Tonight sitting this year out. Still, high-profile hosts returned, including HBO at the Pacific Design Center, and of course the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' own Governors Ball at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Naturally, they provided eye-catching decor for the celebratory night.
Earlier in the week, Variety and Women in Film hosted a pre-Emmy party at the Montage's Scarpetta, honoring female nominees. Entertainment Weekly and L'Oréal hosted a bash Friday at Fig & Olive. Kicking things off even earlier were Audi and Derek Lam, which took over Cecconi's for a third annual bash a full week ahead of the awards.
And there were so many more. Here's a look inside Emmy week's big parties, suites, and events.
