SHOW BITS: Moore a wallflower, Klum a traffic cop
Question of the Day
IT’S NOT TV, IT’S AN AFTER-PARTY

Everything was coming up roses _ and daisies, lilacs and tulips _ for Julianne Moore at HBO’s floral-themed Emmys after-party.
In her bright yellow dress, Moore practically blended in with the colorful decor that covered the floor, walls and tables. The first-time Emmy winner, who portrayed Gov. Sarah Palin in the TV movie “Game Change,” held court with her trophy at a table near the party’s centerpiece: a circular sofa surrounded by giant faux flowers. She posed for photos with eager attendees _ even when they seemed apprehensive about asking for yet another picture.
“Are you kidding? I’ll never get tired of this,” she said with a grin before pinning her red locks up in a makeshift bun. “I just wish it wasn’t so hot.”
Nearby at his own table, “Boardwalk Empire” star Steve Buscemi helped himself to a platter of desserts, including macaroon lollipops. He eventually loosened his tie.
Several HBO stars, including “True Blood” vampire Alex Skarsgard and shape-shifter Sam Trammel, mingled throughout the sprawling soiree held outside the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. Attendees feasted on such dishes as kale salad, purple roasted potatoes and chicken with gnocchi.
Nicole Kidman, who was nominated alongside Moore for lead actress in a TV movie for “Hemingway & Gellhorn,” and her husband, country singer Keith Urban, made a brief appearance at the party, which included a stop to chat with Jane Fonda and Michael J. Fox, before Urban led Kidman out through the massive crowd.

IT’S PARTY TIME
The first stop after the show for most Emmy nominees and winners is the Governors Ball, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center across the street from the Nokia Theatre.
Heidi Klum directed traffic as guests arrived, many stopping to pose for a photo under the dramatic red arch at the entrance.
“Move along, move along,” she said.
Among the early arrivals to the party, themed “A Romantic Rhapsody in Red,” were Zooey Deschanel, Christina Hendricks, Mayim Bialik and Jon Cryer.
