SHOW BITS: Heidi plays traffic cop; Kevin recalls
Question of the Day
Show Bits brings you the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards through the eyes of Associated Press journalists. Follow them on Twitter where available with the handles listed after each item.
IT’S PARTY TIME
The first stop after the show for most Emmy nominees and winners is the Governors Ball, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center across the street from the Nokia Theatre.
Heidi Klum directed traffic as guests arrived, many stopping to pose for a photo under the dramatic red arch at the entrance.
“Move along, move along,” she said.
Among the early arrivals to the party, themed “A Romantic Rhapsody in Red,” were Zooey Deschanel, Christina Hendricks, Mayim Bialik and Jon Cryer.
Cryer toted his Emmy in one hand and a glass of red wine in the other, as Hendricks sipped from a cocktail glass and finished dinner.
On the menu: A smoked salmon avocado sphere, roasted tenderloin with mushroom risotto fries and white chocolate raspberry cake.
After the ball, parties around town beckoned. At least half a dozen fetes were planned to celebrate nominees and winners.

COSTNER RECALLS `MOMENTOUS DAY’
Kevin Costner now has an Emmy to go with the Oscars and Golden Globes that mark a long and successful journey since the day he first told his parents he had decided to become an actor.
That news didn’t go down well in his blue-collar Southern California household. His mother was a welfare worker and his father an electrician and later a utility executive.
“My father turned around and said, `What? How are you going to make a living, how are you going to take care of somebody?” Costner recalled backstage at Sunday’s Emmys. “In his mind I was throwing everything away.”
