Tracy Morgan
was rushed to a hospital moments ago at the Sundance Film Festival -- after the actor  fell unconscious at an award ceremony ... TMZ has learned.

Tracy was being honored at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards in Park City, Utah -- and sources tell TMZ, he appeared extremely intoxicated during his award acceptance speech.

We're told Tracy was escorted out of the building soon after his speech -- and fell unconscious outside the building.

Amy Roberts, a spokeswoman for Park City Medical Center, tells TMZ no drugs or alcohol were found in Tracy's system upon medical evaluation.

Morgan's rep, Lewis Kay, also released a statement saying, "From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention."

Kay adds, "He is with his fiancée and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false."

9:50 AM PT: Tracy just tweeted, claiming the high altitude was responsible for his 911 emergency last night -- "Superman ran into a little kryptonite. The high altitude in Utah shook up this kid from Brooklyn."

Its too bad that Tracy got hooked on booze. Most people would be better off if they just took a little marijuana to smooth out the edges. Nobody dies, and cannabis helps reduce pain, calms you down, and ups your mood.
I have back pain and medical marijuana does help. Instead of medicating with opiates, booze, or other harmful drugs, medical marijuana taken in edibles really works for me and many others.
Great e-book on medical marijuana: MARIJUANA - Guide to Buying, Growing, Harvesting, and Making Medical Marijuana Oil and Delicious Candies to Treat Pain and Ailments by Mary Bendis, Second Edition. This book has great recipes for easy marijuana oil, delicious Cannabis Chocolates, and tasty Dragon Teeth Mints. goo.gl/iYjPn goo.gl/Jfs61

If I'm not mistaken Tracy is a diabetic. If his sugars are badly out of whack, like to the point of passing out, then he could very possibly appear drunk to someone who doesn't know. In the past he's not taken his condition seriously enough which is what led to him needing the kidney in the first place, it's very possible he just ignored his symptoms.

Diabetus was my thought too. Hope he feels better.

Other than that, I don't like 30Rock and I especially dislike Tracy, he's like a retarded JJ from Good Times.

Diabetes and a kidney transplant so far. My bet is that he doesn't live 5 more years.

I'd like to take this opportunity to reach out to Tracy in a way he understands:


Alcoholics need to quit being p**sies and not be whining about something as insignificant as falling over in public and having to be rushed to the hospital.

Drinking is something that kids learn from the media and programming. My dad better talk to me like a man and not in a slurry drunk voice or I'll pull out a knife and stab that fat f*cking wino to death.

I don't care if I piss off some fat, aging, has-been comedians because if they can handle urinating themselves at film festivals they can take a f*cking joke.
