I don’t know about you, but if I was up for an Emmy, I would be a nervous wreck. I would be getting primped and primed, and would be busy trying on every dress ever made to get ready for the big day. But for those in the business, it’s just part of their job. It’s their world, and they navigate it with grace and in a relaxed manner — so relaxed that they take the time to go and socialize and party it up before they head to Sunday’s big event. Over the weekend, the stars have been spotted at a variety of events, getting all dolled up as if it was a dress rehearsal for the real Emmys. We saw stars from Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad, and Modern Family all hobnobbing in Hollywood. Check out the stars partying it up on Emmy weekend right here:
