Issa Rae is a visionary writer, performer, and all-around icon, and when she says she wants to do #yachtshit, she means it. Ahead of the Emmys, Rae hosted a pre-Emmy party celebrating the record number of people of color nominated for the awards this year—including her! She’s nominated for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Insecure. Hence the massive blow-out celebration, featuring her coworkers, fellow writers, and beyond.

Amanda Seales! I can feel the littyness from here!

Tiffany Haddish is the captain now!

Okay, I need to stop looking at these because they’re making my existence feel pointless. Good luck at the Emmys tonight, everyone!
