The Emmys Governors Ball Is So Nice They Have It Twice

So much for the Golden Globes having the biggest party of the year

The Creative Emmy Awards wrapped over the weekend with a Creative Arts Ball, where winners like Jane Lynch (Outstanding Host for a Reality-Competition Program, Hollywood Game Night) and Chris Hardwick (Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media – Social TV Experience, @Midnight with Chris Hardwick) popped by for the “Reigning with Radiance”-themed afterparty. It is time to do it all over again this Sunday, September 20, and amp it up for the Emmy Awards Governors Ball.

Host Andy Samberg and co. will be walking into a transformed Convention Center sparkling with 4.4 million glittering beads (that’s 21.3 miles of beads they will be hanging from the ceiling, for those keeping track), 45,000 individual Swarovski crystals, 1,500 white roses, and 2,500 candles. Patina will be feeding the well-dressed, award-winning hoards for the 20th year in a row, and David Foster along with world-renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli will be providing the entertainment. The whole shebang is a class act—it amazes me how Patina churns out thousands of beyond delish, piping hot dishes (in perfect unison!) at each event. I always think of this Governors Ball as a little bit of Vegas and a lot of L.A. It is over the top in the best way.

Lookout for live scoop on Sunday as to who is partying with their Emmy trophies at the big bash. Follow this SEEN QUEEN backstage, too, by keeping tabs on Twitter (@karimozena).
