Stars kick back at 2017 Emmy after-parties

They survived the red carpet, made it through the three-hour ceremony, and — phew — they could finally let loose. Here’s a look inside the post-Emmy parties, which drew stars including Ben Affleck, who was on the scene with girlfriend Lindsay Shookus, and big winners including Sterling K. Brown, Donald Glover, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Reese Witherspoon, and more.

Jeff Garlin, Charissa Thompson, Larry David, Lindsay Shookus, and Ben Affleck

We see you, Ben Affleck. The actor was the plus-one for his girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus, whose show, Saturday Night Live, was up for a whopping 22 Emmy noms and won, among others, Outstanding Variety Sketch Series. While they skipped red carpets, they stuck together throughout the night, including at the HBO after-party at the Plaza at the Pacific Design Center, where they shared a table with Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Jeff Garlin and Larry David, as well as TV host Charissa Thompson.

Sterling K. Brown and Mandy Moore

Sterling K. Brown became the first black actor to win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series since 1998 — and celebrated at the Governors Ball at the Los Angeles Convention Center with his This Is Us family, including Mandy Moore. Although his speech was cut short, we did hear the bit where he called his co-stars Mandy, Milo Ventimiglia, Justin Hartley, and Chrissy Metz “the best white TV family that a brother has ever had, better than the white folks who raised Webster.” (Photo: Alex Berliner/Invision for the Television Academy/AP Images)

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Brad Hall

Veep‘s Julia Louis-Dreyfus made history with her sixth consecutive win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series (that’s the most Emmys ever won by a single performer for one role) and celebrated with her hubby, Brad Hall, at the Governors Ball, as Anna Chlumsky sampled the menu beside them.

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon was a winner, y’all. The actress and producer, who already has an Oscar and Golden Globe, added an Emmy to her collection for executive-producing Big Little Lies, which won Outstanding Limited Series. Reese, pictured at the HBO party, was also nominated for her acting on the show, but her co-star Nicole Kidman scored the win, keeping it all in the family. (Photo: Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images)

Perhaps Reese’s good luck charm was her daughter, Ava Phillippe. Her lookalike, who recently turned 18, made the scene with her at the HBO bash. (Photo: Getty Images)(Photo by Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic)
