Emmy nominees attend West Hollywood party before television's biggest night

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (KABC) -- With just days away from television's biggest night - The Emmys - the party's already begun for this year's big nominees.

The best and brightest stars of the small screen lit up the red carpet for an exclusive reception honoring this year's nominees in West Hollywood.

Many were still breathing in the moment!

"It feels good when you know you're in a race with people who have put in the work and are a part of something special," said actress Regina King.

"To be here, to be nominated, to have the show nominated...just a wonderful time for us and all involved," said actor and comedian Anthony Anderson.

Michael Kelly, who plays Doug in the Netflix original series "House of Cards," said he's still in disbelief.

"No, I didn't know anybody was going to see it. Netflix was where you got your DVDs. When we started, I didn't know anyone was ever going to see the show, and now look, Netflix is running the world," he said.

And while some stars have their sights set on Sunday, a few came to work.

"I go to these parties to look for my next job, actually," said actor RuPaul. "You know of anything?"

The 68th Emmy Awards will air Sunday on ABC.
