Emmys weekend is officially in full swing! Festivities kicked off on Friday with a number of star-studded Emmy Awards pre-parties before Sunday’s big event. Check out the photos below!

Variety and Women In Film teamed up to host a pre-Emmy celebration at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood. Attendees included Lea Michele in a slinky, sparkly silver dress, Donald Glover in a blue suit, and Kate Walsh working a trench coat. They were joined by Laverne Cox, Michelle Dockery and Sarah Hyland, among others.

The other big soiree was the Entertainment Weekly shindig, for which Cox actually changed outfits. Guests ranged from Mary J. Blige and Keegan-Michael Key to Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Many stars actually party-hopped between the two events.

Vanity Fair also hosted a bash with social media stars, and the talent agency Gersh had a cocktail party that drew Emmy power players like Jeffrey Tambor and Allison Janney. Meanwhile, TV Guide Magazine held its Advocacy Awards, with honorees including Derek Hough and Tony Hale. The Television Academy also had a reception for nominated performers.

More parties are planned for Saturday night, and Gossip Cop will have full Emmy coverage, including red carpet photos, on Sunday. Check out the photo gallery below!
