The AP says:
Unlike previous years, The Weinstein Co., E! and Paramount Pictures did not host after-parties at the hotel. Showtime held an offsite party at the nearby Peninsula Hotel, and Fox Searchlight hosted a party at the restaurant Craft.
NBC Universal's annual party on the Hilton's rooftop was a mostly industry affair, with guests dancing to a DJ spinning tunes by Prince and Britney Spears. Vases of white roses and lilies, and silver containers full of white feathers, decorated the area. Massive black chandeliers hung from the ceiling.
The reporter who was covering the parties busted into the "intimate" party for AMC's Mad Men and interviewed a whiskey-loving Jon Hamm, who "seemed a little unsteady on his feet." At that minimally-decorated bash, guests ate mashed potatoes out of martini glasses, grooved to retro music and kept the booze flowing freely.
The hotel's Circa 55 restaurant was, apparently, the most happenin' of all hotspots: the HBO party was hosted there (as is tradition). Eva Mendes, Drew Barrymore, Lauren Hutton, Paul Giamatti, Laura Linney and Anna Paquin made appearances at the bash, and we feel it is important to note that the poor Mercury-poisoned Jeremy Piven was snacking on chocolates and wasn't washing them down with booze. He passed on champagne and wine to drink water instead.
