THE SCENE — Audi Emmy Party
By Carole Dixon
For the first big event of the season, Audi, the official automotive partner of the 71st Emmy Awards, kicked off Emmy weekend at Sunset Tower in West Hollywood to host its annual pre-Emmy bash celebrating outstanding talent in television.
Inspired by the brand’s sustainability efforts, the fete featured eco-friendly design elements and products that will be reused and recycled following the party to reduce the carbon footprint. The climate crisis was on everyone’s mind – even on the carpet. “Anything we can do to save Mother Earth,” commented nominee Milo Ventimiglia from “This is Us.”
The all-electric Audi e-tron SUV was on display, while VIPs including Elizabeth Banks, Laura Dern, and LaKeith Stanfield as well as Brett Gelman, and Marti Noxon were chauffeured in the 2019 Audi Q7 and A8 vehicles to and from the hotel.
At the party, guests including Todd Gurley and Charlie Barnett, posed in the black and white portrait studio and enjoyed music by Reggie Watts and Alexandra Richards with JB Smoove showcasing some dance moves. In addition to passed trays of pizza and meatballs, guests nibbled on Sugarfish sushi – apparently, a favorite on the “This is Us” set.
