REPOST: With the long Emmy weekend upon us, here again is Deadline’s guide to all the parties.
There are a number of changes in the party roster this year, some due to the fact that the Primetime Emmys are on Monday to accommodate host network NBC’s Sunday Night Football telecast.
The weekend agency/network festivities stretch over four days. They start with the WME party, which is staying on Friday despite the Emmys’ (temporary) move to Monday — CAA, UTA and ICM Partners are shifting their receptions by a day — and end with a slew of post-Emmys bashes Monday night.
Those include a revamped Governors Ball, which ditched the steeped-in-tradition ballroom setting for an open-air rooftop party held on the L.A. Live Event Deck. (You can see a preview under the post.)

Other changes on Emmy night include AMC, IFC & BBC America not holding a reception this year (though BBC America, which has a strong contender in Killing Eve, is sponsoring the BAFTA Tea Party on Saturday). TNT, whose The Alienist won at the Creative Arts Emmys, is making its Emmy party debut, joining sibling TBS, which hosted an event last year, for a joint celebration. And, with Disney’s acquisition of key Fox assets pending, we will have the last Emmy party of still-siblings Fox, 20th TV, FX and National Geographic.
The biggest change on Saturday and Sunday is the move of CAA’s staple Emmy party from its longtime location at the stately Bouchon in Beverly Hills to the boho-chic Rose Cafe in Venice. Additionally, after taking a break last year, Showtime’s Emmy-eve celebration is back at a new location, Chateau Marmont, after a long run at Sunset Tower (and sans now-ex CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves, who had been a fixture there). Additionally, after a four-year hiatus, Paradigm’s Emmy party is back, while, after hosting a bash for the last few Emmy weekends, Gersh is sitting this year out.
In other tweaks, Comedy Central’s party is on the move again. After moving its pre-Emmy soiree to the weekend of the Creative Emmys last year, the cable network is returning to the weekend of the main telecast.
