66th Emmys: Breaking Nicely for L.A. Show and Lots of Parties
The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards was held Aug. 25 at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles to salute the best in prime television programming. Comedian Seth Myers was the host. Elizabeth Webster of the District Council attended the show and the L.A. parties. On her own dime, she mixed business with pleasure, seeing her California friends and talking up film production in Washington, D.C. Webster works for At-Large Councilmember Vincent Orange, who is an advocate for small business as well as bringing more film production jobs to the District.
For Webster, one of her favorite moments at the Emmys was Billy Crystal's tribute to Robin Williams for his many decades in TV. "It was so touching," she said. At the same time, she said, "I was sorry not to see "House of Cards" and Kevin Spacey win more awards, as they had been nominated in 13 categories."
Webster and her friends -- one of them, Joyce Chow said she just "loved the humor of Sofia Vergara" -- checked out most of the parties before and after the awards show, including Entertainment Weekly at Fig & Olive, BAFTA Tea, the post-Emmys Governor's Ball, the very exclusive Netflix party at Chateau Marmount and the after after VIP Netflix party with the Emmy winners.
