Emmys: THR's Complete Guide to the TV Industry's Hottest Parties

Associated Press

The Hollywood party circuit turns its attention toward the small screen with a slew of Emmy week bashes.

The Emmy telecast turned up on a Monday night in 2014 — the first time TV’s biggest night landed on that day of the week since 1976 — but this year the awards revert back to regularly scheduled programming. Which means, Hollywood’s Emmy parties skip back a day leading up to Sunday’s big show. Here’s a rundown of all the Emmy-inspired cocktail shindigs, industry bashes and piggyback parties in 2015.
