2019 Emmys: A look inside the Governors Ball, and what celebrities can expect at...

After 71 Emmy Awards On Sunday's broadcast, the brightest stars on TV will head to the LA Live Event Deck for a night of celebration, good food, and lots of free gifts reserved for the best of the best at Governors Ball – the official party for the medium's biggest night.

This year's theme will be "Brilliance in Motion". Cheryl Cecchetto, founder and president of Sequoia Productions, a 22-year-old company, shared an exclusive preview of what attendees can expect.

71ST EMMY AWARDS COUNT: EXCELLENT LIMITED SERIES

“We did a computerized color analysis and they were purple, magenta, coral and red. So we split the whole ball into these four different colors with the rug, the bedding and the flowers, ”Cecchetto told Fox News on Wednesday. "I mean, it's pretty impressive, and so is the furniture."

Cecchetto said that after leaving the Microsoft Theater, where the ceremony will be held, guests will walk about 30 meters to the Event Deck, where they will be greeted by a social media area to take selfies. The next area is reserved for those arriving with their gold statues in tow; is aptly dubbed the Winner's Circle.

This is where "all the winners … will receive their personalized Emmys with their name and title, which is quite magnificent so they can spend the rest of the night with their Emmy by their name," added Cecchetto.

What about evening entertainment? Guests will enjoy a performance by Season 4 winner James Graham as they celebrate the food prepared for this year's celebration by Patina's award-winning chef and catering founder Joachim Splichal for the 24th consecutive year.

71st EMMY AWARDS SCORE: GREAT COMEDY SERIES

Although the ball's past iterations have incorporated a sit-down dinner, this year Cecchetto said it's changing, changing over time.

As guests mingle, they will be treated to small plates and perfectly decorated dishes, with yellow sashimi, braised red wine ribs, lobster sliders and crab cake, among other items.

Vegan options will also be wide. The servers will mix it with the herbal Beyond Meat sliders, topped with caramelized onions. Guests can also choose from chicken bars in what Cecchetto called "an easy and affordable menu".

Governors Ball guests will also be able to savor the 2015 Sterling Vineyards Platinum Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 and quench their thirst with sparkling Blanc de Blancs Ferrari Brut and Ferrari Brut Rose sparkling wines, courtesy of the Ferrari Trento.

71st EMMY AWARDS SCORE: EXCELLENT DRAMA SERIES

And if guests prefer a social drink that is shaken or shaken, the ball covers them as well. Television Academy's official mixologist, Charles Jory, created an epic drink program complete with theme-appropriate cocktails called Marvelous Mule and Dapper Dragon.

"Charles invented amazing Ketel One award-winning cocktails that will be flowing overnight and he not only created these delicious award-winning cocktails, but also combined the decor with them," said Cecchetto.

When asked about the industry's fascination with the Governors Ball show, Cecchetto cited the celebratory nature of the evening, adding that it is also a great time for those who rarely see themselves recovering and venting.

“The industry blends in with the industry once a year in a glorious, fabulous and beautiful environment, with extraordinary music and sparkling wine and food – and this year, from the inside out under the stars of LA Live.”
