As a two-time Critics' Choice Awards nominee, she knows the drill.
And while she didn't snag a nod this year, Emmy Rossum's sartorial choices certainly deserved praise from the fashion world on Sunday night.
The 32-year-old actress stunned in a plunging maroon velvet dress by Ralph Lauren Collection as she walked the red carpet in Santa Monica with her husband Sam Esmail.
There was a regal sense to the entire ensemble, including a royal-reminiscent necklace that was clasped close to her throat.
Emmy added two bracelets and carried a Champagne-colored clutch in her left hand.
Esmail was no slouch as he stood next to his gorgeous wife of one year.
The Mr. Robot creator opted for a classic look, opting for a black suit, with a white shirt, and a black tie.
Emmy and Esmail got engaged in 2015, after dating since they met on his directorial-debut Comet, which she starred in.
Neither Emmy nor Esmail are strangers to the Critic Choice Awards.
She was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series in 2012 and for Best Actress in a Comedy Series in 2014, both times for her work in Shameless - she lost both awards.
He, meanwhile, was nominated once as the creator of Mr. Robot in 2016 for Best Drama Series, and took home the award.
