Community and The Soup funnyman Joel McHale will emcee Saturday's dinner, so it's sure to be a hilarious night. But before he takes over, we joined our sister publication to host PEOPLE and TIME's Annual Cocktail Party.
Politicos and celebrities mixed with the media elite at the St. Regis Hotel on Friday evening, kicking off the weekend in a fabulous fashion at the event, deejayed by MICK. Naturally, all the stars took a selfie … or two (We're looking at you, Jesse Tyler Ferguson).
