After the Emmy Awards all the stars in attendance trekked across the street, heels and all, to the Governor’s Ball — TV’s biggest bash.

The couple of the night was definitely Vampire Diaries stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder. The duo, who purposefully keep their relationship out of the spotlight, entered the party holding hands and never left each other’s sides.

The costars were not shy to show affection, and packed on the PDA during the party, stealing a few kisses and looking totally happy! Nina and Ian stayed for about 30 minutes before jetting off to the airport to get back to work on their hit show. 

Guests sipped on Grey Goose, enjoyed some Duncan Hines dessert and enjoyed a live band that went with the mod theme.

Lea Michele sat with Chris Colfer and were happy to see Jon Hamm, who went up to the table to say hello. Amy Poehler and Will Arnett made the rounds while Evan Rachel Wood held court at her table before hitting up HBO’s bash.

Meanwhile down the street from the Gov’s Ball was the Entertainment Tonight party, presented by Visit California. Mark Salling, Kathy Griffin, and Chelsea Hightower were a few guests in attendance and they all watched Stevie Nicks perform.
