The 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards is this Sunday and will be airing "live-live," meaning East Coasters and West Coasters alike will be able to watch the broadcast at the same time. You'll also be able to help write host Jimmy Fallon's Emmys script via Twitter.

That's fun and all, but do take note of the street closures that will occur around L.A. Live in downtown on Sunday. The Los Angeles Department of Transportation has released a very detailed map (.pdf) showing street closures, but it's not exactly an easy read. What you need to know is that the area closed to traffic will generally be bounded by Union to the west, Olympic to the north, Grand to the east and the 10 Freeway to the south. Traffic officers will begin shutting down intersections at 11 a.m.
