Tracy Morgan collapses, is hospitalized at Sundance. Was alcohol a factor?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Once again, the main story out of the Sundance Film Festival has little to do with movies, themselves.

That’s because “30 Rock” star Tracy Morgan has been hospitalized after collapsing at an awards ceremony in Park City, Utah. Gossip sites such as TMZ immediately started reporting that Morgan was intoxicated, quoting sources on the scene. But CBS News ran a statement from Morgan’s reps saying those reports are “100 percent false,” and claimed “a combination of exhaustion and altitude” for Morgan’s health issues.

Now, I’ve been following countless movie journalists at Sundance who are exhausted and suffering the same altitude that affected Morgan, and they manage to stay on their feet. They even manage to work while up in Park City. Imagine that?! So it’s up to you which version of Morgan’s story you choose to believe. Medical exams showed no drugs or alcohol in Morgan’s system, and Morgan sober still comes across as Morgan drunk. Deciding between the two could be tough.

Either way, we wish Morgan a speedy recovery. And Sundance marches on.
