On September 17th, the television industry’s biggest night fêted its MVPs at an event that was solid gold. Following the Stephen Colbert-hosted 69th Emmy® Awards telecast, a team of Hollywood power players, including event planner Cheryl Cecchetto and James Beard-winning chef Joachim Splichal, joined forces yet again to bring the ‘Golden Grandeur’ 2017 theme to life—in an eco-friendly way, no less (an important and timely focus that did not exist in previous years). All décor and food elements were either recyclable, repurposed or bio-degradable in a bid to show The Television Academy’s commitment to the environment. Winners such as Alexander Skarsgard, Alec Baldwin, Aziz Ansari and Donald Glover were in attendance at the gala, which was held, as usual, at the Los Angeles Convention Center following the ceremony.

At the Pilot Pen-sponsored event, the Emmy nominee hit the turntables and also walked around to various vendors including Blooming Skin Care, iMaxAlarm and Burke Williams. Pilot Pen’s “Modern Classics” theme inspired talent to write inspirational messages with the #1 selling and favorite pen in the US, the Vanishing Point retractable fountain pen, with a 18-karat gold nib. Pilot Pen’s space was adorned with colorful art reminding all that “Words Are Powerful, Choose Your Words Wisely”, which created a positive vibe alongside DJ Jesse from PRISM DJ’s, and the perfect grand entrance for attendees as they entered the lounge experience. Pilot Pen also inspired the celebrities to share their message by offering them a $5,000 donation to their charity of choice.
