Jimmy Kimmel has received tepid reviews for his Emmy Awards hosting gig, but if you’re counting the star support behind him? He was a smash.
Following his gig Sunday at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater, Kimmel shut down West Hollywood’s Soho House, inviting winners and friends to join him at the exclusive space.
Robert Pattinson, dressed in his uniform of denim and a baseball cap, showed with a male pal and enjoyed conversation with a small group on the patio.
Samantha Ronson served as DJ for the evening, as Don Julio margaritas and Umami sliders were enjoyed by Josh Groban, Aziz Ansari, Kathy Griffin, Connie Britton, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi, Fred Armison and Jimmy Fallon.
Ladies including Cat Deely and Sofia Vergara stole attention, but it was Kimmel’s party: Bros were in no short supply, including the two-man team of Justin Theroux and John Krasinski, enjoying quality time sans their respective loves Jennifer Aniston and Emily Blunt, chatting up Groban and later DeGeneres.
Kimmel also bagged some trophy holders, including outstanding actress in a comedy winner Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet and Aaron Paul.
Bryan Cranston, David Spade, Kobe Bryant, Julianna Margulies and Michael J. Fox rounded out the guest list. And a very successful endorsement of Jimmy’s hosting turn.
