Here's the thing about the Emmy Awards: People get really hungry during the broadcast. But who can let a celebrity starve? No one! That's what the Governors Ball is for—it's the official after-party and it's full of food. This year, the event will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, which is located right next to where the actual Emmys takes place at the Microsoft Theatre, so stars will walk right across the street to get some grub after Andy Samberg finishes his closing bit on stage. The size of the space is the length of one football field and will seat 4,000 guests.
The Emmys team also released few more big numbers about the food, décor, and space. Below are a few of the highlights they gave us:
- There will be 11,400 wine glasses and 4,000 champagne flutes
- The room will be filled with 400 floral arrangements
- The décor will feature more than 45,000 individual Swarovski crystals used to create 536 crystal strands
- Overall, there will be 21.3 miles of beads will be hung throughout the ceiling
- There will be over 7,000 yards of fabrics, including silks, taffetas and satins used for table linens
- The décor will include 16 cherry blossom trees with 10-foot canopies
- For the food, there will be 900 pounds of single origin Ghana chocolate
- … and 1,500 pounds of filet mignon
Plus, this year's menu is shaping up to satisfy every taste bud in the room. Television's biggest names better come hungry (and leave room to breathe in their gowns) for this delectable assortment.
