Guests arrived at the Red Carpet at 3pm and enjoyed a two hour pre-awards reception at the Santa Monica Barker Hangar. The large airport hangar was expansive and dramatic, providing an unusual and exciting venue for the Show and Reception. Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte bottles adorned the entire main bar display, spanning the entire length of the Hangar. Guests sipped champagne, ate passed appetizers, and took silly photos in the photo booth.
