Audi of America revved up the party circuit for this year’s Emmy Awards with a soiree held Sunday at Cecconi’s restaurant in WeHo. Fashion designer Derek Lam, who is designing the Emmy greenroom this year, hosted the fete. For the second year, Audi is the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ automotive partner, and the German automaker is also sponsoring the Lam-designed greenroom.
At the party, Eric Stonestreet explained to guests his experience of being escorted out of a Los Angeles Dodgers game on Saturday after a confrontation with a Cardinals fan.
Meanwhile, Melissa McCarthy was thrilled to be nommed for both “Mike & Molly” and hosting “SNL.”
“To be nominated for both is like someone putting a cake on top of a cake. I’m not complaining. I like cake,” she joked.
