The Entertainment Weekly-Women In Film pre-Emmy party, considered by some to be the unofficial kick-off to Emmy week, is the biggest mix of stars you'll see this week before the actual Emmy awards on Sunday.
Sharon Stone, Olivia Wilde, Cicely Tyson, George Lopez, Seth Green, Rachelle Lefevre and Sarah Silverman were just a few of the stars walking the red carpet at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood Thursday night. The event lasted several hours and was a casual environment but the attire was definitely DRESSY. Tons of press showed up, cameras in hand knowing the party would be a gold mine for video and stills of some of the best celebrities in Tinseltown.
For many of the stars in attendance, it was a way for them to show support of for TV magazine "Entertainment Weekly." Ask any television star and they'll tell you how the magazine has helped shape their career by putting them on the cover or doing a multi-page article on their show. George Lopez told me "Entertainment Weekly is huge, bigger than CNN. But seriously you can't make it in this business without them." And Shannen Doherty admitted "Entertainment Weekly has put me on the cover over the years so I just had to come out to support them too."
So now one Emmy party down... and several more to go!
