2023 Emmys: Inside the Star-Studded After-Parties

Winners, nominees, and co-stars alike danced and partied the night away after the annual awards show.

With a slew of co-star reunions, emotional wins and standing ovations, the 75th Annual Emmy Awards proved to be well worth the wait. 

But after the major awards were handed out, with Succession and The Bear coming out on top, the stars made their way to the annual awards show's various after-parties to dine, dance and dish. 

ET was on hand, both on several red carpets at the soirees as well as inside the events for eyewitness observations. Here's what went down:

Governors Ball

Feet First

Beef star Ali Wong was spotted with her boyfriend, Bill Hader, leaving the Governors Ball in Adidas sneakers. And she wasn't the only one to opt for comfort. Keri Russell, who was enjoying a date night with her husband, Matthew Rhys, took off her heels and was walking barefoot around the venue.

Elton John's Wakeup Call

Elton John became an EGOT winner on Monday night at the Emmy Awards, but he didn't even know it. His proud husband, David Furnish, accepted the award on his behalf and then called him to wake him up in the U.K. and share the news. 

"That means so much to him. It really does," Furnish tells ET of John's new EGOT status. "We woke him up! He went to bed, he's in England. We FaceTimed and woke him up in the middle of the night, and he screamed down the phone he was so excited."

The legendary singer-songwriter recently underwent a knee replacement and is recovering at home.  

"Oh goodness, I want to take it home to the family. Celebrate with our sons, that'll be the most fun," Furnish says of his and John's sons, Zachary and Elijah. 

Wilmer Valderrama's (Lack of) Wedding Bells

Wilmer Valderrama isn't in a rush to head down the aisle. The 43-year-old actor spoke with ET at the event, where he talked about his engagement to model Amanda Pacheco. He proposed in 2020, but the couple doesn't have any immediate plans to tie the knot. 

"We wanted to do that, for sure, that's definitely in the cards. I don't know if we're going to make it this year," Valderrama tells ET. "Obviously the strike and all of the stuff that was happening really pushed a lot of stuff around and the uncertainty of when we were going to work, you know, was happening. But it's definitely something I want to celebrate with her. She's an incredible mom, and I'm excited to celebrate her in that way."

"I mean, listen, I want to be Husky Ken, so I'm waiting for that phone call Greta [Gerwig]," Hauser tells ET. "I'm so happy for Margot [Robbie], she's -- to the surprise of no one -- Margot has ascended into producing, and I'm sure she'll direct someday. I'm just so crazy proud of her. She's awesome."
