The Emmy Awards have wrapped. "Big Little Lies" was a big winner along with Donald Glover, "Saturday Night Live" and "The Handmaid's Tale." Lena Waithe made history as the first black woman to win for writing in a comedy series, "Handmaid's" was the first streaming show to win drama, and Donald Glover was the first black man to win directing in comedy. Check out our behind-the-scenes stories, fashion breakdowns and red carpet interviews.

Behind the scenes

Get a peek inside the Emmys' lavish after-party, the Governors Ball

More than  5,000 gold-colored, paper tubes (ranging in length from 2 to 20 feet) have been suspended from the ceiling at the Los Angeles Convention Center to channel the look of "Golden Grandeur." 

That is the theme the creators of the annual post-Emmy Awards extravaganza the Governors Ball are hoping to evoke as they host guests of the show, nominees, presenters and plenty of winners posing for pictures of themselves planting a kiss on their trophy. 

Last year's Governors Ball transformed the space into a magical forest wonderland (with the occasional sponsored car parked between the whimsical branches). This year it's all about the gold. 

Event producer Cheryl Cecchetto explained to The Times that the "epic look" of the venue "is going to make everyone feel so important."

Fifty bartenders, 250 cooks, 27 executive restaurant chefs and 600 servers will converge to offer the celebrants heirloom tomatoes, filet mignon and brownie bars. 

However, the splendor has a green bent: All the decor elements from the party is either recyclable, repurposed or biodegradable.
