Sunday night’s Emmy ceremony was a rollercoaster ride for actress Kristin Chenoweth, who went from accepting her award onstage to being checked on by paramedics only a short while later.

The pint-sized star delivered one of the night’s more memorable acceptance speeches — for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy in Pushing Daisies — bouncing back and forth between tears and jokes as the currently unemployed actress half-seriously made her case for roles on Mad Men and 24.

But backstage, Kristin began experiencing symptoms of a severe migraine headache. She was immediately attended to by on-site medics and according to her rep she soon recovered and is doing fine.
