But did the fear of fangs stop Cory Monteith from showing up? The rest of the ‘Glee’ cast partied alongside the cast of ‘True Blood,’ ‘Entourage,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ and so many more!
Every year, the HBO Emmy party is THE bash to beat — and this year was no exception! Stars from all networks flocked to the glam event, which was held at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, following the Emmy Awards Sept. 18. The Game of Thrones cast mingled with the Entourage guys, while the Glee kids chatted it up with William H. Macy.
Sponsored by Belvedere, Stila Cosmetics and other brands, the party was filled to the brim with bars and buffets set up with items like shrimp and grits, chicken Marsala, salmon, pea risotto, tuna sashimi, foie gras, gnocchi mac & cheese, plus full dessert bars — and stars were loving every second of it.
Lea Michele stuck close to her BFF and co-worker, Dianna Agron, for much of the night. The girls joined their fellow cast members at a table and seemed to be enjoying themselves. Noticeably absent was Glee hunk, Cory Monteith, who was at the actual Emmy awards, but was nowhere to be seen at the HBO party.
Jon Hamm was with his long-time partner, Jennifer Westfeldt, making the rounds and chatting with a wide variety of people. We nearly died of happiness watching Friday Night Lights star and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, Kyle Chandler, congratulating Jon and visa versa. The men shook hands and Jon hugged Kyle’s supportive wife.
Meanwhile, the Entourage cast were among the first to arrive and some of the last to leave. Adrien Grenier spent much of his night playing wing-man to Friday Night Lights‘ Zach Gilford, while Jerry Ferrara was spotted laughing and living it up with Kevin Dillon and taking a smoke break in the back, along with Julia Stiles.
Other celebs at the party included True Blood cast members, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Brit Morgan, Joe Mangianello, Adina Porter, Janina Gavanka, Ashley Jones and Jim Parrack, Stanley Tucci, Guy Pearce, Michael C. Hall, Topher Grace, Chris Noth and the very happy cast of Modern Family.
