PHOTO and VIDEO – Paramedics called as Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth suffers migraines


Kristen Chenoweth looked cute as always in a short little number (got to show off those dancer’s legs!) made out of a shattered mirror at the 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards where she picked up a win for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for the now defunct Pushing Daises.

The 41-year-old actress burst into tears at her unexpected win, but still managed to crack jokes throughout. After her emotional speech, she fell ill backstage with a severe migraine. Sources told Access Hollywood that at one point she complained about being unable to open her eyes, and paramedics were called to the scene.

Here’s an out-of-sync video of Kristin’s moving and funny speech. I’ll update with a better video if one becomes available:
