Emmys 2016 After-Parties: Tom Hiddleston's Flirtatious Evening, 'Stranger Things' Kids Take the Spotlight and
By Rachel McRady
Didn’t score an invite to one of the star-studded Emmys 2016 after-parties? Never fear! ET was on the scene at Sunday night’s hottest bashes, rubbing elbows with your favorite A-list stars.
From Tom Hiddleston’s post-Taylor Swift schmoozing to the Stranger Things kids stealing the show, here were the best behind-the-scenes moments:
Sharing Is Caring at Amazon’s Emmy Celebration
Obviously, the Transparent cast and Emmy winner Jeffrey Tambor were the MVPs of Amazon’s post-Emmys soiree at Sunset Tower Hotel. The 72-year-old actor walked into the party holding his latest trophy and smiling.
He was greeted by a female pal who asked to hold his Emmy. Tambor kindly held it out to her, but after she asked for several pictures, he took it back. (He did earn it, after all!)
His co-star Gaby Hoffmann was spotted busting a move on the dance floor in jeans and a black top after changing out of her red carpet look.
Actress Emily Ratajkowski also dazzled at the event in a strapless navy gown with bold blue eye makeup. She brought her boyfriend Jeff Magid as her date, posing for pictures with her musician beau.
Netflix’s Party Is Picture Perfect
Though he awkwardly ran off the stage during his acceptance speech, Aziz Ansari proudly displayed his shiny new trophy at Netflix’s after party. He was quickly approached by House of Cards star Kevin Spacey, who posed for pictures with the Master of None star and creator and his Emmy. Both Netflix stars received lots of love from partygoers.
While Spacey was busy paling around with Ansari, his on-screen wife, Robin Wright, was having a blast in the photo booth with her daughter, Dylan Penn, hugging and laughing while snapping some funny pics.
Someone else who enjoyed the photo booth was Stranger Things star Joe Keery, who packed into the booth with several female friends in masquerade masks.
Serving Up Lemonade at the HBO Emmys Party
Inside The London Hotel in West Hollywood, the stars grooved to Beyonce’s “Formation,” despite the singer’s mysterious no-show at the ceremony. She was nominated for directing her HBO special Lemonade, and ultimately lost to Grease Live! But Queen Bey caused an even bigger stir when she failed to attend the show despite them saving her a seat.
After the Game of Thrones cast scored a record-breaking 38 wins, they celebrated in style at the after party. Though co-stars Emilia Clarke and Sophie Turner chose not to change out of their gorgeous gowns, Maisie Williams ditched her flower-covered frock for a mod silver mini-dress, showing off her chic new bangs.
Quantico star Priyanka Chopra goofed off with Scandal president Tony Goldwyn on the carpet, posing for pictures while pointing at photographers and laughing with their arms around each other.
Amy Schumer was up to her usual antics, striking funny poses in group shots with her boyfriend, Ben Hanisch, Silicon Valley stars Kumail Nanjiani and Martin Starr, comedian Nikki Glaser, and her sister, Kim Caramele. Though she looked stunning in her Vivienne Westwood gown, the Comedy Central star was overheard saying she couldn’t wait to get out of her binding dress.
Everyone got on the dance floor, including Modern Family star Nolan Gould and his adorable girlfriend and Sofia Vergara’s son Manolo, who jammed out to Pitbull’s “Fireball,” shortly after celebrating his 24th birthday with a Mexican fiesta earlier in the weekend.
Another main attraction at the party was newly single actor Tom Hiddleston, who posed for pictures with Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery and was spotting having a flirtatious exchange with a leggy blonde mystery woman. He was also introduced to singer Tori Kelly for exiting the fete with his all-male entourage.
Not too far away was longtime Swift squad member Jaime King, who attended the party with her hubby, Kyle Newman. Hmm, keeping an eye out for T.Swift, perhaps?
Hiddleston also planted a sweet kiss on his Night Manager director Susanne Bier's cheek as she held her Emmy. "Celebrating with Pine himself," she captioned the photo.
Forget adults, all eyes were on the adorable kids at the Governors Ball at the Microsoft Theater following the show.
The cast of the Netflix hit Stranger Things made a cameo and were quickly flooded with celebrity fans, asking them to take pictures. Earlier in the evening, Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel had stars Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin, and Gaten Matarazzo hand out the PB&J sandwiches his mom made for the show’s celebrity guests.
Recent People vs. O.J. Simpson winners Sterling K. Brown, Sarah Paulson, and Ryan Murphy all attended the bash, celebrating their wins together. Brown was seen getting emotional and choked up while speaking with a group of people congratulating him.
Paulson, of course, enjoyed the evening with her date, Marcia Clark, taking photos with the prosecutor and Murphy. Angela Bassett, whose husband Courtney B. Vance also won for his People role, went up to Murphy and the two gave each other a big hug.
Another affectionate (and totally random) pair were Charo and Saved By the Bell actor Dennis Haskins. The two were seen taking flirty pics with their arms around one another.
And though he didn’t win an Emmy, late night host James Corden was still having a blast. Loudly greeting several guests and singing along to performer and Voice winner Jordan Smith, Corden looked like he was having a great time.
Funkytown at the Fox Fete
Despite there being plenty of professional dancers in attendance, 5-year-old Modern Family star Jeremy Maguire stole the show on the dance floor. The precious child actor busted a move with his bold red cape. He was quickly joined by Grease Live star Julianne Hough, who held the cape out for Maguire as he showed off his moves.
