AN EMMY KODAK MOMENT
It’s Kodak Moment time backstage at the Emmys, with “The Daily Show” winners taking photos of each other holding their Emmys.
“Do they still ship these if you ask?” inquired the show’s head honcho, Jon Stewart.
“Yeah, because I have two children with me,” he added, noting the statuette’s pointy wings.
But he borrowed a trophy so he could pose for a photo with his writing team. He promised to return it before leaving the theater.
