An early highlight of the red (actually cream) carpet: Black-ish star Jenifer Lewis, who’s turned up in joggers, leggings and a jumper. This is one entertainment industry veteran who clearly knows these nights can be looooong, and dressed accordingly.

Of course, there was in fact a political element to Lewis’ choice of attire. With Nike facing controversy for featuring controversial kneeling quarterback Colin Kaepernick in its latest campaign, Lewis’ outfit was a clear show of support for the company:
