    Paramedics Called For Kristin Chenoweth Backstage For Emmy Emergency

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. --

    Paramedics were called backstage at the Nokia Theater for Kristin Chenoweth, according to an Access Hollywood source on the scene who witnessed the incident.

    The star, who won her first Emmy award earlier on Sunday evening for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy for her role as Olive Snook in “Pushing Daisies,” first complained about a migraine headache, then said she couldn’t open her eyes.

    Paramedics on site cared for the star in the room outside of the backstage gift lounge. She rested and then left the ceremony, the source told Access.

    The source added that Kristin, who had given a tearful acceptance speech just moments before, remained in good spirits despite the ailment.

    According to The Associated Press, a rep for Kristin later said that the star was fine and would potentially participate in the after-show festivities.

    Oh no. Let's pray for her to be well.

    She recently tweeted "sometimes the aura of a migraine. im warding it off w meds then gonna hit the town! thx 4 ur love n well wishes!!!"
