The newly-single "New Girl" actress donned a black and neon green Prada dress as she worked the red carpet alongside her "Bones" actress sister Emily before heading inside for the sure-to-be entertaining festivities.
Among the nominees this year, Miss Deschanel is in the running for Best Actress in a TV Series Comedy or Musical honors for her "New Girl" role.
Of being among the contenders, Zooey told E! News, "I am completely overwhelmed with happiness! This is a huge vote of confidence for nerdy girls everywhere! I am so lucky to have this amazing job, and to collaborate with this incredible cast, crew, team of writers and producers. I am so grateful to the HFPA for giving us all this honor and grateful to be nominated with such talented and amazing ladies who I respect so much."
With the live televised event to be aired on NBC beginning at 8 p.m. ET, the ceremony is presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association while being hosted by Ricky Gervais.
