Bash glories in ‘It’ crowd

MTV documents Entertainment Weekly blow out

A capacity crowd gathered at Gotham’s legendary Roxy Monday night to ponder the essence of “It.”

Entertainment Weekly bash to celebrate the “most creative people in entertainment” brought out strivers and achievers alike.

Fledgling thesp Jesse Eisenberg (who had a 50-50 shot of taking the “It Eisenberg” title) was enjoying his kudos now, “because I’m not going to be famous next year.”

Iconic Rue McLanahan (It Rerun) was pleased “The Golden Girls” was still getting its due. “It’s being watched now by kids that weren’t even born when we started,” she said.

Kelly Rowland, Danny Masterson, Shane West, Alan Cumming and Jessica Simpson mingled alongside this year’s iterations: Justin Lewis, Craig Bierko, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Jason Lewis, as MTV cameras shot the entire evening for an upcoming special.

Evening’s entertainment included performances by Snoop Dogg and George Clinton.

Bruce Willis showed up late — and separately from Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, who hit the afterparty at Plaid.
