Priscilla Presley and her granddaughter, Riley Keough, made a rare joint appearance together for Monday night’s (Jan. 15) Emmy Awards show.

Presley and Keough, the mother and daughter of the late Lisa Marie Presley, walked the red carpet together ahead of the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles. Both women looked stunning dressed in coordinating black outfits.

Makeup artist Mai Quynh shared a behind-the-scenes video of Keough getting ready for the big night, and posing alongside her grandmother for photos before making their way to the event.

During a red carpet interview with ET, Keough said that being at the Emmy Awards with her family is “very special.”

“I’m here with my grandmother and my husband. I feel lucky to have family here to support me,” she told ET’s Kevin Frazier.

She added that her role on Daisy Jones & The Six that earned her a first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie category, was “one of the most fun jobs I ever had.”

Keough is up against Lizzy Caplan (Fleishman Is in Trouble), Jessica Chastain (George & Tammy), Dominique Fishback (Swarm), Kathryn Hahn (Tiny Beautiful Things), and Ali Wong (Beef).

Riley Keough and Priscilla Presley’s joint appearance comes just three days after the first anniversary of Riley’s mother and Priscilla’s daughter, Lisa Marie Presley. Lisa died on January 12, 2023, at the age of 54.


Keough and her grandmother’s appearance comes after a months-long legal battle following Lisa Marie’s death. The pair came to a settlement agreement in May and it was approved by a judge in November.

In a statement made to PEOPLE following the agreement, Priscilla clarified rumors about the legal battle and maintained that she and Riley have remained on good terms.

“My family has resolved all confusion as it relates to our plea to the court and request for document interpretation after my daughter Lisa Marie’s untimely passing,” Priscilla said at the time. “Although some media identified such a plea as a lawsuit, I want to make clear that there was never any lawsuit filed against my beloved granddaughter.”

She added, “As a family, we are pleased that we resolved this together … the Presley family is stronger than ever.”

The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards were originally scheduled to take place in September 2023, but were delayed due to the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes. The show will air live Monday night, January 15 at 8 p.m. EST on Fox and will be available for streaming the following day on Hulu.
