A whole bunch of TV types will be in attendance, and we think we know how it'll go when they mingle.

Sen. Patrick Leahy: Ms. Vergara, what a very great pleasure it is to meet you.
Sofia Vergara: Yes...sir! And the same to you!
Sen. Patrick Leahy: I should have said -- I'm Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont.
Sofia Vergara: ...I know! I know who you are! You used to be the Vice-President.
Sen. Patrick Leahy: Oh goodness, no, you might be thinking of my former colleague, Vice-President Cheney.
Sofia Vergara: Maybe! I don't really follow politics.
Sen. Patrick Leahy: Haha, well, this might be a long night for you!
Sofia Vergara: Ay, I know, and look at these heels!
Sen. Patrick Leahy: Excuse me, I think I see Josh Gad.
Bellamy Young: Oh my God, Robin, hi!
Robin Wright: Hi?
Bellamy Young: This is so funny, where is a photographer?
Robin Wright: I'm so sorry, have we met?
Bellamy Young: I'm Bellamy Young! From Scandal!
Robin Wright: Oh! Very nice to meet you. Robin.
Bellamy Young: I know, of course -- you're following in my footsteps!
Robin Wright: I'm sorry?
Bellamy Young: You know -- I was a TV First Lady first, and now so are you! We should get a picture together -- maybe with Mrs. Obama! Three First Ladies! Wouldn't that be a hoot?
Robin Wright: I don't really...know if she would want to do that.
Bellamy Young: Just the two of us, then!
Robin Wright: Oh. Okay. Sure. Posing with someone from Scandal. ...Yes. I think I saw a photographer over there. Let me just go track her down, but you stay right here. Don't move.
Bellamy Young: Absolutely!

[Fifteen minutes pass. Bellamy sadly goes to the bar.]

Darren Criss: Ms. McClendon-Covey, I'm so sorry to interrupt, I just wanted to tell you how much I loved you in Bridesmaids. I just did a little film with Kristen and she told me so many funny stories about you and the production, so I'm thrilled to meet you. I'm Darren.
Wendi McClendon-Covey: Darren. Come on. You think I don't watch Glee? It's great to meet you. Look at you in your tux! Adorable.
Darren Criss: Heh heh, yeah, uh, thanks.
Wendi McClendon-Covey: Sing something.
Darren Criss: Pardon?
Wendi McClendon-Covey: Give me a little "Teenage Dream." Dinner's not for ages.
Darren Criss: ...
Wendi McClendon-Covey: You know you want to.
Darren Criss: I just--
Wendi McClendon-Covey: Come on. You know the choreo. Take that jacket off and get to it.
Darren Criss: How many of those Cosmos have you had?
Wendi McClendon-Covey: Six. Let's go.
Eric Garcetti: Are any of the producers here? I'd love to talk to them about moving the production to Los Angeles.
Kimberly Williams-Paisley: The production of...Nashville?
Eric Garcetti: Hey, if Los Angeles can stand in for New York, D.C., Pawnee, Indiana--
Kimberly Williams-Paisley: I think Mr. Dean might put up a bit of a fight if you tried to move the show! Excuse me--
Eric Garcetti: Ms. Paisley, wait. The Tonight Show moved to New York. That's hundreds of jobs. I need this.
Kimberly Williams-Paisley: I'm not even on the show anymore, Mr. Mayor.
Eric Garcetti: What?! I'm only three episodes into Season 2! Things work out with you and Teddy, though, right?
Kimberly Williams-Paisley: Uhhhhhhhhh...
Robin Wright: Julianna. Look over there.
Julianna Margulies: Where?
Robin Wright: What's that really trashy show on ABC?
Julianna Margulies: Revenge?
Robin Wright: No.
Julianna Margulies: Celebrity Wife Swap?
Robin Wright: No.
Julianna Margulies: Mixology?
Robin Wright: No. Drama.
Julianna Margulies: Oh God, Black Box?
Robin Wright: No.
Julianna Margulies: Grey's Anatomy?
Robin Wright: Not that, the other one.
Julianna Margulies: Oh, Scandal.
Robin Wright: Over there, that broad who plays the First Lady on it wanted to take a photo with me.
Julianna Margulies: Oof, tacky.
Robin Wright: With Mrs. Obama, she said.
Julianna Margulies: What did you say?
Robin Wright: I pretended to get a photographer and then I came over here.
Julianna Margulies: Oh, Robin. You just ditched her and made a beeline for me?
Robin Wright: I didn't know what else to do!
Julianna Margulies: Maybe go say hi to someone who doesn't also play a First Lady on TV?
Robin Wright: Who, you?
Julianna Margulies: Alicia is the First Lady of Illinois!
Robin Wright: Haha, sure, that's the same.
Julianna Margulies: You are so mean. I don't even know why I'm friends with you.
Robin Wright: Oh shit, here she comes!
Julianna Margulies: Quick, start a conversation with Leahy!
