Sarah Paulson had a very, very good weekend!
The 41-year-old actress won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie at Sunday's Emmy Awards for her role as real-life prosecutor Marcia Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson. She used her speech to thank Clark, who Paulson brought to the awards show, and declare her love for girlfriend Holland Taylor.
After the show, Paulson brought Clark with her to the 2016 Governors Ball in Los Angeles, where she gleefully waited for her Emmy Award to be engraved while sipping on a World Class cocktail.
Plenty of stars started partying before the Emmys were even over! Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy enjoyed drinks by Austin Cocktails while visiting the Backstage Creations Giving Suite, which benefitted the Television Academy Foundation.
Emily Ratajkowski attended the ceremony with Zac Posen, the designer who created the intricate, navy blue mermaid-tail gown she wore for the big night. Considering it was extremely warm in L.A. on Sunday, it was quite smart of the model-actress to grab a FIJI water while she was still on the red carpet.
Parties began all over L.A. well before the award show even kicked off. Derek and Julianne Hough enjoyed sibling time at the Variety and Women in Film's Pre-Emmy Celebration, sponsored by Mercedes Benz, on Sept. 16, while Jon Voight attended the SHOWTIME Emmy Eve party, sponsored by Heineken, at the Sunset Tower Hotel the following evening.
Jodie Sweetin was all about family time this week. The Fuller House star and her 8-year-old daughter, Zoie, played with Hasbro's new #FurbyConnect, a fuzzy, digitally interactive toy with Bluetooth technology, at their L.A. home on Sept. 20.
Ashley Tisdale had games on her mind as well. The Young & Hungry producer romped through the first interactive urban orchard at the launch of King's Farm Heroes Super Saga mobile game at New York City's Madison Square Park on Sept. 21.
Elsewhere in the Big Apple that day, Olivia Culpo, Bethenny Frankel, and Jules Wainstein were among the guests who celebrated The Stanton Social's 10+1 anniversary.
Leave it to Heidi Montag to ring in her 30th in a sweet way. The birthday girl was graced with a red velvet cake topped with cotton candy while friends sang "Happy Birthday" at Sugar Factory American Brasserie on Ocean Drive at Hotel Victor Miami in South Beach, Florida, on Sept. 16. Of course, her husband, Spencer Pratt, was there too, rocking a "Make Speidi Famous Again" hat, because, why not.
Across the country, Chris Evans spent the weekend in Las Vegas at the Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace. He posed with the Joe Louis statue, known as a lucky spot at the recently upgraded Caesars Palace Race & Sports Book, on Sept. 17.
Daniel Craig had a bit of luck as well. The man also known as James Bond got to introduce The Killers when they headlined the Music Midtown Festival at Atlanta's Piedmont Park on Sept. 18.
Celebrities did a lot more than party, however. Kristen Bell, who's well known as a philanthropist and activist, helped Thrive Market CEO Gunnar Lovelace announce the company's latest initiative to help feed children in need: the 10K Meal Challenge.
Meanwhile, Aaron Carter and Audrina Patridge were among those who stopped by Debbie Durkin's EcoLuxe Luxury Lounge at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on Sept. 17 to support Shriner's Hospital for Children -- Los Angeles. The 28-year-old singer even celebrated Christmas in September by sitting on Santa's lap!
