On Sept. 22, 2013, Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger was among the celebrities who attended HBO's Emmy Awards after-party, which was held at The Plaza at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles.
Jagger is one of the producers of the Rolling Stones documentary "Crossfire Hurricane," which premiered on HBO in November 2012.
"Crossfire Hurricane" received four Emmy nominations, but did not win any of the prizes. The nominations were for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special; Outstanding Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming; Outstanding Sound Editing for Nonfiction Programming (Single or Multi-Camera); and Outstanding Sound Mixing for Nonfiction Programming.
Thanks to multiple wins for the movie "Behind the Candelabra" and comedy series "Veep," HBO was one of the night's biggest winners at the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards that were held earlier that night in Los Angeles.
Other celebrities at the HBO party included Jane Fonda; "Behind the Candelabra" star Michael Douglas; "Enlightened" star Laura Dern; "Veep" co-stars/Emmy winners Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale; "Game of Thrones" co-stars Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke; "The Newsroom" star/Emmy winner Jeff Daniels; 'True Blood" co-star Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Sam Trammell; "Girls" co-stars Lena Dunham, Alex Karpovsky and Hamish Linklater; "Girls" executive producer Judd Apatow and his wife, Leslie Mann; "Downton Abbey" co-star Michelle Dockery; "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Cheryl Hines; "Breaking Bad" co-star/Emmy winner Aaron Paul; "Scandal" star Kerry Washington; "Bates Motel" star Vera Farmiga; "The Colbert Report" star/Emmy winner Stephen Colbert; 'The Big Bang Theory" co-stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar; "Castle" star Nathan Fillion; and "Trophy Wife" star Malin Akerman
As previously reported, the U.S./Canadian release for the movie on DVD, Blu-ray and digital video was May 21, 2013. "Crossfire Hurricane" was originally scheduled for a U.S. and Canadian release on DVD/Blu-ray/digital video on Jan. 15, 2013. It was released in January 2013 in the U.K., Japan and other countries.
"Crossfire Hurricane" (directed by Brett Morgen) is the official 50th anniversary documentary of the Rolling Stones. However, the movie focuses primarily on the band's first 20 years. Morgen said in interviews that because of the deadline for the movie's release, there wasn't enough time to cover the band's entire history in the film. Jagger told USA Today that a "Crossfire Hurricane" sequel is very possible.
Even though "Crossfire Hurricane" did not win any Emmy Awards, "Crossfire Hurricane" won the prize for Best Music Film at the 2013 NME Awards.
Jagger and the Rolling Stones have a long-standing relationship with HBO, which did a live telecast of a Rolling Stones concert at New York City's Madison Square Garden in January 2003, during the band's "Licks" tour.
In addition, Jagger is executive producing an HBO rock'n'roll drama series (still untitled) that will center on an executive in the music business. Emmy-winning "Boardwalk Empire" actor Bobby Cannavale is attached to star in the series, but the show's cast has not been officially announced yet. Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter, who teamed up for "Boardwalk Empire," are also involved in the TV series.
Emmy winner Winter wrote the series' pilot screenplay, while Scorsese is an executive producer and is reportedly confirmed to direct the pilot episode. Brian Koppelman and David Levien ("Ocean’s Thirteen," "Runner Runner") have signed on to write and direct episodes of the show if HBO picks up the show for a series.
In other news about Jagger, he and his longtime girlfriend L'Wren Scott attended a party celebrating Longchamp's Regent Street grand opening in London. The event was held on Sept. 14, 2013.
