Women In Film Celebrates Women In Television
The 2011 Emmy weekend rolled into West Hollywood with a crash on Friday, September 16, as Women in Film threw their annual bash. That non-profit organization that is "dedicated to helping women achieve their highest potential within the global entertainment, communications and media industries" (according to their mission statement) always puts on great parties in Los Angeles, but this one, put on with Entertainment Weekly, was a doozie.
How about a nominee or two – or 20! It was a sea of television's best and brightest at Boa restaurant on Sunset Boulevard, as talented women (and a ton of men, too) of every age, shape and size air kissed and oohed over each other's outfits and shoes. "Downton Abbey" Lead Actress in a Miniseries nominee Elizabeth McGovern rolled in from London, looking absolutely adorable in a cobalt blue strapless number and sparkling diamond choker, but she was feeling it.
"I am so jet lagged right now, I'm not sure where I am," she joked.
Elisabeth Moss, she of "Mad Men" fame and a Lead Actress in a Drama nominee, knew exactly where she was – taking her third ride on the Emmy train. She's hoping that third time is a charm, as she's been nominated three years in a row, but hasn't won. "I'm just having fun!" Moss laughed, then shared some of her Emmy night secrets. "I already have my dress picked out. It was the first one I tried on! But I can't tell you any more; we have to keep it a secret until Sunday night. I will wear Lorraine Schwartz jewels, I can tell you that. Her stuff is amazing!"
