Tracey's Emmy Faux Pas

The only other oddity Prohaska can remember is that when six-time Emmy winning British comedienne Tracey Ullman was handed her five-pound trophy some years ago, the personalized Emmy band snapped off the bottom.

"She was able to incorporate that into her speech," Prohaska said. "She made a joke out of it."

But just as it always does, the show went on. This time it was simply a few laughs longer.
