Pre-show parties for Emmy nominees
Kevin Costner, Amy Poehler, Bryan Cranston, Zooey Deschanel, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and other Emmy-nominated actors have celebrated their success at a series of parties around Hollywood.
Most began their evening at the Emmy Performers Nominee Reception at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles.
The event saw nominees presented with certificates acknowledging their acting achievements.
The nominated stars posed for a class photo, with many proudly holding their certificates above their heads.
"This is like graduation," said Elizabeth Moss, nominated for her work on Mad Men.
"You get to meet so many people you might not get to see at the Emmys," beamed the actress.
Also among the guests were Martha Plimpton, Loretta Devine, Mare Winningham, Julia Ormond and Eric Stonestreet.
The Emmy Awards will be presented on Sunday at the Nokia Theatre.
