Sharon Horgan, 53

Sharon Horgan, a nominee for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for Bad Sisters, told People that her real-life sisters who are “an instant party everywhere we go” would do anything for each other just like her on-screen sisters (“if we had to!”). The actress cut a stunning figure in a low-cut, beaded black and feathered Georges Chakra Couture dress with a train.

​​Sheryl Lee Ralph, 67

​It’s all in the family for Ralph, who is styled by her daughter Ivy Coco Maurice. The look? A white gown by Christian Siriano with a tuxedo-inspired top, fitted bodice and trumpet skirt. “Just looking so amazing,” Siriano posted on Instagram. On the red carpet, Ralph reflected on her Abbott Elementary success: “It took me 40 years to become an overnight sensation, and it feels better than you imagine,” Ralph said. In an interview with AARP, Ralph spoke glowingly about her daughter: “She majored in economics at Syracuse, and I thought she was going to go to Wall Street — she certainly had that skill. But she had always loved fashion. My mother was a fashion designer, and Coco was very influenced by her.”​

The supporting actress nominee for Welcome to Chippendales rocked red Moschino. When asked about her red carpet vibe, Lewis explained: “I felt comfortable. I don’t like a corset, so we’re not corseted, we’re just snug.”

Amy Poehler, 52

The comedienne’s burgundy, sequin gown hit all the right notes, and her trendy bob haircut added extra sass. Poehler’s currently joining pal Tina Fey, 53, on their “Restless Leg” comedy tour. In a recent interview, Fey jokingly called Poehler her work “wife.” “We really just have such an ease and shorthand working with each other,” Fey told TODAY’s Willie Geist.
