Nominees Night, which was sponsored by Heineken with Casamigos and FIJI water served, helped mark this year’s full return to Emmy celebrations since the start of the pandemic, with less than 48 hours to go until TV’s biggest night.
Inside the indoor-outdoor party, featuring 360-degree views of West Hollywood, Garfield held court, sharing a laugh (and expressing his Ted Lasso fandom) with Richardson and Jimoh, and words with Bradley Whitford, who also chatted with Succession stars Braun and Moayed. Einbinder played social butterfly as well, taking photos with Brunson (who later shared a hug with Byer) and Severance‘s Jen Tullock.
West Side Story star Rachel Zegler made an appearance, sitting alongside Byer and Guillen, then later chatting with Yellowjackets star Jasmin Savoy Brown. Her co-stars Ricci and Samantha Hanratty, who play different eras of the same character on the Showtime series, stopped for a photo together, as additional Yellowjacket Tawny Cypress arrived late in the evening, and squealed at the site of Ricci. Lynskey and husband Jason Ritter entered shortly after but not before Ritter got a chance to say hello to Garfield at the valet.
