LOS ANGELES - Many of Hollywood’s biggest names will be descending upon the 71st Emmy Awards Sunday — but this year, the red carpet will be a deep shade of purple.
Rita Garcia from Good Day LA gave a behind-the-scenes look from the purple carpet Friday morning as the final touches were being put in place at Los Angeles’s Microsoft Theater.
The reason for the purple carpet, Garcia explained, is to invoke the feeling of royalty.“What do you think of when you think of that color?” mused Garcia, “It’s royalty! They’re honoring this year’s Hollywood and also television royalty.”
The 71st Emmy Awards will air Sunday, Sept. 22, on FOX.
