Even with no Emmy wins for its original series lineup, HBO came out on top in the numbers game Sunday night – the cable network’s 25 Emmys, mostly for movies and miniseries, put it well ahead of runner-up ABC, which won 18. The stars who turned out for HBO’s post-Emmys bash at the Pacific Design Center were harder to count – by 10 o’clock they were coming thick and fast. Inside, clusters of tall tropical palms and a pink and green color palette made the swank space feel like a cross between the Beverly Hills Hotel and The Cocoanut Grove, the famed L.A. nightspot of a bygone era. Bongo drummers and belly dancers entertained, and Wolfgang Puck catered for 1500. In this exclusive TOH coverage, videographer Billy Vasquez captures the faces and the feel of the night’s best party.
