How can you not smile when you get TV stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell together in the same room? (Hint: It's not possible.) On Sunday, September 15, Audi and Altuzarra brought together the nominees of the 65th Primetime Emmys to kick off the awards week. The fourth annual party was attended by nominees Julie Bowen, Mayim Bialik, Cat Deeley and Margo Martindale along with Sarah Hyland, RJ Mitte, Thomas Sadoski, Allison Janney and Navid Negahban among others.
Once again the official vehicle partner of the Television Academy, celebs arrived in Audi vehicles including the brand's fuel-efficient flagship sedan the A8 L TDI. Throughout the week, Audi will be supporting the Emmys through various platforms; the brand's new 'Smart Performer' commercial starring nominee Claire Danes, aired during NBC's Sunday Night Football. A new Emmys edition of the video will play during Sunday's telecast.
Held at Cecconi's West Hollywood location, attendees enjoyed hors d'oeuvres, pizza and specialty cocktails during the event. Julie Bowen and Sarah Hyland of Modern Family were stunning with Bowen decorated in a white dress with silver beading and Hyland donning a chic black strapless dress. The talk of the evening was most notably surrounding Breaking Bad's newest episode, which loyal viewers were excited to go home and watch.
Checking out the display of Altuzarra looks, Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) seemed especially interested in a sequined piece. And as Love Crime by Frank Ocean sounded through the speakers, she took to the dance floor with her boyfriend. Jessica Pare (Mad Men) and host Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance) also stuck close by their beaus during the evening as they chatted with partygoers.
Of the programs receiving ten or more nominations are American Horror Story: Asylum (17), Game Of Thrones (16), Behind The Candelabra (15), Saturday Night Live (15), Breaking Bad (13), 30 Rock (13), Downton Abbey (12), Mad Men (12), Modern Family (12), Homeland (11), Phil Spector (11) and Boardwalk Empire (10).
