Pinkie’s Up! It’s Teatime For The Emmy Nominees at the BAFTA LA TV Tea
With Marlise Boland and Elyse Ashton
September 21, 2019 – Beverly Hills
It’s award season in Hollywood and every year the most talked about pre-Emmy award celebration is the BAFTA Los Angeles TV TEA. Easily the most glamorous tea party you’re likely to see stateside as Emmy nominees from the UK and US alike join A-listers and studio execs for the best of English traditions…afternoon tea – complete with scones and lashings of clotted cream!
Held poolside at the Beverly Hilton with the gorgeous LA sun shining down, Emmy nominees caught a bit of respite just ahead of the 2019 awards ceremony. Hosted by BAFTA Los Angeles and BBC America, Hollywood’s most brilliant stars graced the red carpet before heading into the party to enjoy a nice cuppa and some cucumber sandwiches. Amongst the teatime guests were Killing Eve stars, the double-nominated Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s marvelous Emmy-winning Rachel Brosnahan, and Chernobyl’s Jared Harris, Ava DuVernay and her brilliant cast of When They See Us and many more!
But the voltage really amped up with the arrival of Hollywood Royalty, Michael Douglas (nominated for The Kominsky Method) and wife, Catherine Zeta Jones (Queen America, Chicago) looking every bit the glamorous movie stars.
We had a great time interviewing the celebrities on the red carpet. Check out our interviews below. OUR FAVORITE: We asked the celebrities, “HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR TEA?” We can’t decide if Rufus Sewell was our favorite or not…
The Anglophile Channel spoke to Michael Douglas about his nomination, The Kominksy Method and what exactly is a fascinator? It was fascinating that he didn’t have a clue given that he’s married to one of Britain’s most stylish fashion icons!
We were so excited to be one of the only outlets Ms. Zeta-Jones chose to speak to. Looking every inch a glamour queen, Zeta-Jones shared her thoughts on making Queen America:
Fiona Shaw, who we loved to loath as Petunia Dursley in the Harry Potter film series, nominated for her role on Killing Eve gave us some insight into her role on the Emmy-nominated series:
Game of Thrones is certainly the show to beat at this year’s Emmys. Liam Cunningham, who plays Davros on the epic HBO hit series, told us what it was like saying goodbye to the show:
Dashing Rufus Sewell was all charm and gorgeousness as he talked about his roles on ITV’s Victoria and his guest role on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel:
Upcoming Disney+ star, Isabella Blake Thomas (Once Upon A Time, Doctor Who), talks about her role in Disney’s newest princess series, Secret Society of Second Born Royals set to launch in November:
Emmy winning director, Ava DuVernay, who gave us one of the most inspiring Emmy acceptance speeches in recent years, was on hand with her incredibly talented cast from When They See Us.
