While there was much celebration for the winners at the Emmys, the losers were having a party of their own.
After the 65th Emmy Awards, Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler held a party for the people who, like them, did not come home with the award, the Huffington Post reports. Jon Hamm said that Kristin Wiig thought of the party idea last year when she held it in her hotel room.
“We called it the Losers Lounge because nobody that was there won and it kind of stuck,” Hamm explained. “We were like ‘That was a really fun party. We should do that again, but we should do it bigger and better and invite our friends who aren’t going to win either.’”
According to Yahoo, actors present at this year’s Losers Lounge were Bill Hader, January Jones, Jane Lynch, Jimmy Kimmel, Peter Dinklage, and David Spade.
Actors who did win an Emmy were not omitted from the party, but had to donate $1,000 to the Worldwide Orphans Foundation to get in. $2,000 was donated from the night.
“I wanted a place where everyone can celebrate, because win or lose it’s about moving forward and having fun while doing it,” Poehler said.
