And, for those of you who were wondering... yes, I WAS in the
audience, seated immediately to Pem's left... how exactly I got
there is a story better left untold... but.... there I am, on
the far right of the screen, basking in my15-nano-seconds of a

And on Pem's right (the other one

Mrs. Farnsworth's agent and manager (and, umm...
my ex-wife), who was instrumental in engineering

Thanks also to Emmys telecast producers
Gary Smith and Zack Smith for including this moment
in the program, to Academy executives John Leverence
and George Sunga for recognizing its importance,
and to Evan Schwartz
for working all the angles.
