Wow, massive congratulations to the entire cast and crew of Big Little Lies who cleaned up at The Emmys last night!! They won a total of 8 awards, including Best Limited Series – which was a personal win for Reese as an executive producer – acting awards for Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern, and directing for Jean-Marc Vallee. Find their full list of wins further down this post. On behalf of all Reese fans I think I can say how proud we are of her for the wonderful work she did both in front of and behind the scenes of Big Little Lies – this was clearly a passionate project for her and we’re so happy for her and the success and impact it’s having! And the same goes for the entire cast and crew who put together this fantastic show.
Reese was accompanied to the event by her husband, Mum and daughter, and posed on the red carpet with Nicole. Reese looked smart in a blue satin jacket dress by Stella McCartney (Reese wanted to wear a female designer), with a Tyler Ellis purse, shoes from Christian Louboutin, and David Webb jewellry.
This post will be updated with coverage from the night over the next day or so. To start with, we have a ton of videos from the red carpet. Photos are coming very soon….

Jennifer Aniston briefly mentions Reese, their upcoming TV Project, and Friends in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar:
Amy Sedaris: Comedy—you’ve got it. It must be great to branch out into roles like that and The Good Girl, where you’re willing to look unglamorous. Now you’re going to do a show with Reese Witherspoon. Are you excited about going back to TV?
Jennifer Aniston: Always. Lately all the great work has been on television. Reese was my little sister on Friends. She had just given birth to Ava, who’s 18 now, so it was like, “Oh, my God, a baby with a baby!” [Laughs]
Reese attended CAA’s Pre-Emmys Party in Beverly Hills last night to celebrate Big Little Lies‘ 16 nominations. Reese looked chic in a little black dress and posed with her Big Little Lies writer David E. Kelly and co-star/friend Laura Dern, as well as Geoffrey Rush and A Wrinkle In Time director Ava DuVernay.

Reese and her Home Again co-stars Candice Bergen, Jon Rudnitsky and Pico Alexander continued their promotional tour with an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen last night. As well as their movie, Reese chatted about her upcoming TV show with Jennifer Aniston and Big Little Lies. The show had various games involving Reese and Candice’s movies, including Four Christmases, This Means War, Fear, Sweet Home Alabama, Legally Blonde, The Man In The Moon and Just Like Heaven – it was pretty funny seeing Reese’s reactions to these movies! She also re-created the Bend & Snap and explained how and when to use it. It was a really fun and lively interview, and nice to see Reese alongside Candice. She wore a dress by Bottega Veneta with Alaia shoes.
