Fabulous swag is plentiful for celebs year-round, but really ramps up the week before any awards show. But this year Backstage Creations crafted a gorgeous “Giving Suite” behind-the-scenes at the Emmys, held at LA’s Nokia Theater, featuring not only luxurious freebies for the talent, but more importantly, a $150,000 donation to the Television Academy Foundation.
For each celebrity who attended the suite, a donation will be made on their behalf to the charity, which is dedicated to preserving the artistry of TV, celebrating its history and educating those who are embarking on careers in the field.
The suite, designed by HGTV Design Star’s Josh Johnson, was tucked away backstage at the Emmy’s venue, was a relaxing respite for talent, who did receive some pretty cool gifts as they meandered about.
Scandal’s Dan Bucatinsky was psyched to pick up Zoomer, an electronic dog that mimics the actions of a real one, for his two kids. “My kids who are 6 &8 will flip,” said the doting dad. “They’re going to love this. They’re dying to get a dog.” Even Behind the Candelabra star Michael Douglas seemed smitten with the robotic pet.
Mom’s Anna Faris and Allison Janney stopped by the suite together, and Anna clearly had her hubby on her mind when she spotted bags by Waltzing Matilda. “This is so amazing, the feel and the smell of these are beyond great,” she gushed. “My husband would love that saddle bag.”
Meanwhile Derek Hough, who already has a dazzling grin, picked up a Whitening Lightning Super Booster Teeth Whitnening Pen and was really impressed by the Couture by WETSTYLE tub, mentioning that he’s currently building a house.
