main Governors Ball will take place September 17 immediately
following the awards telecast; two smaller events, dubbed the
Creative Arts Governors Balls, were scheduled earlier on September
8 and 9. As is tradition, all three events-with a total attendance
of 8,300 guests-feature the same decor, which this year is an
"Emmys Under the Stars" theme.
Ball Committee co-chair Halina Siwolop explained in a press
release "the shift in format challenged Joachim Splichal
Catering to design the ultimate small-plate dining
experience," she said. "We think guest will have fun
tasting their way through nearly three dozen dishes - each a
work of culinary artistry." Stars will enjoy Sterling wines
with their gourmet plates.
