With the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards set for Monday, preparations have begun for the television industry's biggest night -- and for the dinner party after television's biggest night.
The rolling out of the red carpet took place this week outside the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, and Bruce Rosenblum, chairman and CEO of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, was on hand to act out his "childhood dream."
"You always want to be the first guy to roll out a red carpet, so it was a fun morning," Rosenblum said. The executive kicked off the event -- literally, as you can see in the video above -- with host Seth Meyers and executive producer Don Mischer.
Also preparing for a rush of stars are Cheryl Cecchetto and her company Sequoia Productions, the group that produces the Governors Ball festivities that occur after the Emmys are handed out. With the theme of the evening being "Kaleidescope of Color," the company will present an interactive event to highlight both color and movement.
"It's taken off to something bigger, better, more, using various mediums that are not stagnant, but can move throughout the evening both geographically and geometrically," says Cecchetto.
On the 60th anniversary of color being introduced to television, both the show and the ball aim to take advantage of the moment.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
