Arab News - - COFFEE BREAK -

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.
