Alec Baldwin, Sterling K. Brown, more kick off Emmys weekend
LOS ANGELES: Actor Sterling K. Brown is taking Emmys weekend one day at a time.
The “This is Us” star and nominee is juggling a jam-packed schedule of call times and parties in the lead up to the awards ceremony Sunday, where he is nominated for lead actor in a drama series.
“It is a gauntlet,” Brown said Thursday at The Hollywood Reporter and SAG-AFTRA Emmy Nominees Night party. “I have got work tomorrow, then there are three parties tomorrow and two parties on Saturday and then Sunday. And then I have to be at work Monday at 6 a.m., so I’m memorizing lines. But I’m having a good time and I’m just trying to enjoy each moment as it comes.”
Brown and fellow nominees and industry peers gathered for drinks and treats, like uni toast and truffle pizza, at Jean-Georges at the Waldorf Astoria before Emmys weekend kicks into full gear.
Attendees like Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria Baldwin held court with the likes of Matthew Modine, Anne Heche, William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman, as Bob Odenkirk chatted off to the side and Geoffrey Rush introduced his son around the party.
Modine, deep in conversation with Baldwin, paused to give his young “Stranger Things” co-star Gaten Matarazzo a hug as he walked by, bee-lining to the booth in the back of the restaurant where Natalia Dyer and Finn Wolfhard were hanging out.
