Emmys: The big day has arrived…

… and already my feet hurt.

Had a blast making the Saturday night party rounds, starting with the Evening Before fundraiser for the Motion Picture and Television Fund Home. High-level schmoozing in the courtyard area behind CAA for a good cause, plus fantastic eats. (Heed my words, Chuck Lorre, and run, don’t walk, and go buy those Beatles remastered discs. You won’t be disappointed.)

From Century City I scooted down Wilshire Boulevard to NBC Universal’s party at Spago. It was packed, as usual, and hotter than usual, thanks to the weather. But how can I complain? I ate still more fantastic food and sweets, and I got to catch up with some Peacock folks who I usually only communicate with by email or phone. I also made a citizen’s arrest of Michael Cudlitz to tell him how much I dig “Southland.”

A few Spago pics have popped up on NBC U’s press site.

Top one is a group gaggle with the new big boss Jeff Gaspin and NBC programming prexy Angela Bromstad flanked by talent: “The Office’s” Angela Kinsey, Rich Sommer (“Mad Men’s” Harry Crane, who also guested on “Office” last season), Ken Jeong and Joel McHale of newbie “Community.” 

Middle one is the sublime meets the ridiculous, or Jeff Gaspin, “Law & Order: SVU’s” Mariska Hargitay and “30 Rock’s” Alec Baldwin.

And the bottom one is birds of a feather, or “30 Rock’s” Jack McBrayer and “Office’s” Ed Helms.
