Whilst some celebrities chose to head straight into the auditorium, others spent some time chatting with us before they went off to take their seats.
Shebie King was one of the first to stop by and say hi. Accompanying the film crew for Home and Away, she and Veronica had plenty to catch up on after they worked together on two movies previously.
The lovely Angela McDonald, script writer for ?Doctor Doctor?.
The gracious and effervescent Julia Morris looked very comfortable in her Tuxedo and Karl Lagerfeld handbag which her husband bought for her in Paris.

Doris Younane definitely did justice to this $60,000 gown.
Heather Mitchell in her vintage gown looked every bit the classy actress she is.
The Stenmark Twins, Zac and Jordan, over from New York for the awards. They are looking forward to spending Christmas with their family here in Sydney.
Whilst My Kitchen Rules judge, Manu Feildel, was busy being interviewed, we got to chat with his beautiful wife and mother of their children. Whilst others we spoke to on the carpet took up to 7 hours to get ready, the stunningly beautiful Clarissa was ?out of her mum clothes? and ready in 45 minutes. Our kind of girl!
The Bachelor Australia presenter, Osher Gunsberg, shared his excitement about attending the awards which was clear by his suit!
