The Emmy’s are happening today in and around the Nokia Theater at L.A. Live.

Then again, like you needed an excuse to avoid L.A. Live.

Motorists in downtown Los Angeles may not be walking down the red carpet on Sunday, but they may feel like they deserve to.

Officials will close down several streets around the Nokia Theatre for the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards presentation and the after-show Governor’s Ball.

The closures will affect Figueroa Street from Venice to Olympic boulevards, Flower Street between 9th Street and Pico Boulevard and Pico between Flower and L.A. Live Way.

Additionally, 11th and 12th streets will be shut down west of Flower, officials say.

Most closures will begin at 6 a.m. and will last until midnight.

Chick Hearn Court, in the L.A. Live district, will be closed through Wednesday, they said.
