The Emmy Awards have wrapped. "Big Little Lies" was a big winner along with Donald Glover, "Saturday Night Live" and "The Handmaid's Tale." Lena Waithe made history as the first black woman to win for writing in a comedy series, "Handmaid's" was the first streaming show to win drama, and Donald Glover was the first black man to win directing in comedy. Check out our behind-the-scenes stories, fashion breakdowns and red carpet interviews.

Yes, the 'Stranger Things' kids were at the EW pre-Emmy party, plus 'This Is Us' cast and countless stars

So many stars popped into the pre-Emmy party thrown by Entertainment Weekly at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood that they had to stand in line if they wished to walk the red carpet.

Inside the party space on Friday, guests carved out a spot to dance, while others spent every moment mingling with past and present Emmy nominees, industry insiders and all the other VIPs present.

This shindig, which was sponsored by L’Oreal Paris, featured — in addition to cheeseburgers, fries and a chance to catch up with TV stars — servers carrying trays of mascara.

Just beside the patio, Seth Meyers, host of “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” and his brother, actor Josh Meyers, chatted with friends.

Did the talk show host have any predictions for the Emmys? “I predicted Hillary was going to win,” he said. “So, what do I know?”

Sharon Lawrence of “Me, Myself and I” didn’t offer predictions either but said she was already happy with the 69th Primetime Emmys. That’s because last week, as the first awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys, Gerald McRaney — also known as Dr. Nathan Katowski on “This Is Us” — took home an Emmy for guest actor in a drama series.
