HBO transformed the outside patio of the Pacific Design Center into an island-themed paradise of gold and pink, complete with fire pits, elevated oasis lounges and towering floral displays. But it wouldn’t be an HBO bash without its key ingredient: partying celebs.
All members of the HBO family were there, including Martin Scorsese and his “Boardwalk Empire” cohorts Steve Buscemi, Michael Pitt and Paz de la Huerta; “True Blood’s” Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Sam Trammell, “Game of Thrones’s” George R.R. Martin and Peter Dinklage, and “Mildred Pierce’s” Kate Winslet and Guy Pearce. Also there were the night’s big winners, the cast of “Modern Family.”
HBO also had a few special guests on hand. HBO topper Bill Nelson invited representatives of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Bill Nelson is a military veteran and he does a lot to support the troops. We were out here in L.A. doing work for the Marine Corps and he invited us to the party as a thank you,” said Marine Captain Anton Sattler.
