There are always fetes for awards-show winners -- but losers have never had a place to go to drown their sorrows. Until now.
Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler, both multi-nominated Emmy losers (including this year), created the first Emmy Party Losers Lounge at Soho House for after the telecast.
Lots of famous losers showed up: Jimmy Kimmel, Elisabeth Moss, David Spade, Fred Armisen and January Jones.
Winners were allowed in only if they made a donation to the Worldwide Orphans fund.
In the end, both winners (Tina Fey, 2011 winner Ty Burrell) and many losers ponied up, raising almost $20,000. The hosts gifted donors with engraved bottles of Johnnie Walker Blue.
