Sure, the 2019 Emmys was a really exciting moment in the entertainment world but let’s get to the important stuff: the after-party.
After the final awards were presented at the 71st Emmys, television’s biggest stars and execs headed off to after-parties across Los Angeles which continued well into the wee hours.
Before they left the venue, guests were given bottles of Sterling Vineyards wines for a celebratory chug, while winners received a fancy $250 personalised bottle of Sterling’s 2015 Iridium Cabernet Sauvignon, Cosmopolitan reports.
According to the Napa Valley winery and Emmy Awards sponsor, more than 10,000 glasses of their wines—including Sauvignon Blanc Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Platinum Cabernet—were served to guests.
To give you a better idea of what 10,000 glasses of wine looks like, it is about:
- 1,500 bottles
- 300 gallons
The big ledges over at Variety did a little breakdown of what happened at each after-party so please sit back and enjoy the tea…
The Governors Ball at LA Live Event Deck
Fleabag star and recipient of several comedy awards Phoebe Waller-Bridge along with comedian John Oliver were “mobbed” the moment they hit the party.
Russian Doll collaborators Amy Poehler and Natasha Lyonne also attended together, though Lyonne was later spotted waiting for Fred Armisen so they could walk back inside together.
Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel was spotted entering the event with Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
Other attendees included Amazon top dawg Jeff Bezos, Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier along with Fox’s alternative head Rob Wade, Who Is America? star Sacha Baron Cohen, The Good Place creator Mike Schur, and Succession star Jeremy Strong.
HBO at The Plaza at Pacific Design Center
As always, the HBO party was an extravagant, star-studded masterpiece.
“The centerpiece of this year’s bash was a giant illuminated orb with multiple faces that hovered over partygoers,” the publication reports.
“There [were] many bars and separate areas where you could pick up food. They were serving salmon with vegetables and had huge dessert tables that were surrounding the bars in the middle of the party,” an insider told E! News.
“The dance floor was towards the back area of the party and there was a DJ booth. They had a dance floor [with] HBO-themed flames.”
The Game of Thrones cast descended on the event, chuffed with their win of 12 Emmys, including Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Nathalie Emmanuel, Conleth Hill, John Bradley, Iain Glenn, Alfie Allen and author George R.R. Martin.
Several GoT stars, including Dinklage and Coster-Waldau, were spotted boogying the night away.
The legends of new series Euphoria were also in attendance including Zendaya, Maude Apatow, Sydney Sweeney and other cast members who were spotted “huddling and giggling in the very adult setting.”
Other beloved guests included the Queer Eye lads, RDR fave Nina West and Drake who was said to be a huge hit.
“Drake was the life of the party,” the source said. “Truly, many people were approaching him wanting to say hi and take photos with him.”
Amazon Studios at Chateau Marmont
Waller-Bridge, the qween of the evening, arrived clutching a statuette (I mean, you would).
She and her Fleabag co-stars assembled in the courtyard where she reclined on a sofa in the corner with one Emmy statuette nestled behind her back and another sitting on the table in front of her.
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Alex Borstein exchanged mutual congrats with the Fleabag cast, followed by the show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino along with comedian Stephen Colbert.
Opposite the Fleabag occupied couch was actor Hugh Grant, while fellow Brit James Corden “surveyed the scene indoors, where a lady was playing the electric violin with some vigor, before diving straight into the golden wallpapered photo room.”
Other guests included Real Housewives of New York star Bethenney Frankel, The Hills star Whitney Port and actor Jon Hamm.
At around 1AM, the Fleabag cast began to exit the venue and were passed by several members of the GoT cast including Peter Dinklage.
Dinklage was greeted by “yells and demands for autographs as he stepped out his car and away towards the chateau entrance.”
Your mate Taika Waititi also joined wearing a white denim jacket adorned with various patches. The Marvel director headed straight to a secluded table in the darker corner of the chateau courtyard, as most of the guests made their way down the main staircase and into the early morning on Sunset Boulevard.
Netflix at Milk Studios
Being the network with the second-most Emmy wins for the year, the folks at Netflix had a lot celebrate.
Emmy winners Michelle Williams and Billy Porter were the toast of the party, deservedly so.
When They See Us star Niecy Nash posed for selfies with friends and fans then cut a rug on the dance-floor with former The View host Sherri Shepherd along with Raising Dion star Ja’Siah Young.
Other guests included various cast members from When They See Us, Queer Eye’s Tan France and Netflix vice president of content Cindy Holland.
According to a source, Amy Poehler and Natasha Lyonne were both spotted on the dance floor boping to songs like Beyoncé‘s ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)’ and Gloria Estefan‘s ‘Conga.’
They were joined by GoT stars Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke who danced together to Salt-N-Pepa‘s ‘Push It’.

The publication reports that at one point, a Domino’s delivery guy wandered through with a pizza box although it’s unknown who the food was delivered to.
At the same time, vegan ice cream sandwiches were wheeled out and exhausted Emmy-goers descended on them.
Black Monday’s Andrew Rannells and his boyfriend Tuc Watkins (Desperate Housewives) later arrived, as well as Almost Family’s Brittany Snow.
Talkshow host Seth Meyers also stopped by for a bit with his brother, actor Josh Meyers.
