HBO's critically acclaimed drama "Big Love" kept it all in the family for its fourth-season premiere party Sunday, hosting a cast-and-crew-only bash in Los Angeles to mark the occasion.

Stars Bill Paxton, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloe Sevigny and Ginnifer Goodwin showed up at the Avalon Hollywood, legendary music hall and sister venue to nightclub Bardot. Built for live music, the John Lyons-owned spot was converted into a relaxed screening room for guests, complete with oversized couches.

Amanda Seyfried mingled with her colleagues and looked gorgeous in skinny jeans, a tan blouse and a Louis Vuitton shoulder bag, an onlooker tells me. Though the current season is the "Mamma Mia!" star's last, she looked at home and happy chatting with the likes of Mary Kay Place.

Sevigny roamed the party solo, wandering in and out of groups in a black romper and a casual denim jacket. Goodwin kept close with her boyfriend, Joey Kern, the pair laughing with her fictional husband, Paxton, over a projected slide show of candid photos from the set.

For you "Big Love" die-hards, plenty of additional cast attended, including Matt Ross (Alby Grant), Grace Zabriskie (Lois Henrickson), Harry Dean Stanton (the late Roman Grant), Tina Majorino (Heather Tuttle), Bruce Dern (Frank Harlow) and Branka Katic (Ana). Also, check out Show Tracker's recap of the season opener, "New Beginnings."
