This is the one party of the year that we wish we could attend. There were a number of after parties going on after last night’s 2013 Emmy Awards but there was one in particular that almost everyone wanted to attend – the loser’s party. For all the nominees that didn’t walk home with a statue, this was their party to attend!
Amy Poehler and Jon Hamm hosted the post-Emmys Loser Party at the Soho House in LA that had an entry rule that went like this: if you were nominated and didn’t win, you were allowed in for free. But if you did win and still wanted to party with the rest, you had to make a $1,000 donation to the World Wide Orphans Foundation (WWO). How cool is that?!

Just to give you an idea of how epic this after party was, celebs in attendance were Amy, Jon, Tina Fey, Allison Williams, Amber Tamblyn, Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann, Bill Hader, Zooey Deschanel, Jimmy Kimmel, Aziz Ansari, Adam Scott, Aubrey Plaza, Seth Meyers… you get the idea.
Clearly the party was a success because they raised $30,000 for WWO! Jon dished about the party, which was started last year by Kirsten Wiig, last Friday, saying, “We figured that the winners get celebrated enough so we thought it was about time that the losers get celebrated. And Poehler and I are friends from a long time ago and every year when we would the Emmy we would kind of wink at each other and call each other loser for the rest of the night.”
Great idea guys, but can we please be invited next year?
