ET has the staggering numbers behind the party everyone in Hollywood is vying to get into -- the Emmy Awards Governors Ball.

Kevin Spacey, Claire Danes, Amy Schumer, Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson, Kerry Washington, Tom Hiddleston, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Peter Dinklage, Kirsten Dunst and Idris Elba are just some of the stars who have received a golden ticket to the exclusive affair, and with a guest list like that, the event planners are pulling out all the stops.

"You're looking at 20,000 wine glasses; you're looking at 80,000 roses; you've got 8,000 champagne glasses; you're looking at 7,300 bottles of wine," event producer Cheryl Cecchetto tells ET. "The numbers are crazy."

Television Academy president Maury McIntyre shares with ET that he believes this will be "the largest sit-down dinner on this side of the Mississippi."

There will be more than 250 chefs in the kitchen and around 1,000 employees to serve 3,800 pounds of beef.

"It's a very big party and everything has to be properly organized to make it a 100 percent success," says master chef Joachim Splichal.

During the organizing process, Splichal and his colleagues worked with local farmers and foragers to design the menu. And to ensure the delicious food has an appropriate beverage pairing, Ferrari is returning as the Emmys' official sparkling wine for the second year in a row.

The 68th Emmy Awards will air live on Sunday at 7 p.m. ET/ 4 p.m. PT on ABC.
