This year, the 71st Emmy Awards had two major changes: no host and a purple carpet in place of the customary red spread. The Television Academy, which runs the Emmy Awards, specifically chose this colour to evoke royalty. Here’s a look at some of the kings and queens who walked down the purple carpet.
