BAFTA party fits nominess to a tea

Annual bash features merry mix of talent

Attendees of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts/Los Angeles’ annual Emmy tea party certainly got what one would expect from the Brit-hosted event — minus a rain-soaked lawn.

Emmy nominees, including Brits Julia Ormond and Michael Sheen, along with past winners Glenn Close and Shohreh Aghdashloo, were seen mixing together outside the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza hotel, munching on traditional cucumber sandwiches and scones.

Aghdashloo expressed her love for the British, saying, “With Brits, when they open the door, you are a friend, and you will always be a friend.”

Putting that British charm to work, Nigel Lythgoe, chairman of BAFTA/LA, congratulated this year’s nominees on behalf of the org.

“Tomorrow the American Television Academy is going to be awarding a number of you with that beautiful gold statuette,” Lythgoe said. “This afternoon, we want to congratulate you with the wonderful British honor, a cup of tea.”
