Looks like Kanye West has started a trend.

Stars joked on the red carpet of Sunday night's Emmy Awards about storming the stage -- as West did during Taylor Swift's speech at last Sunday's MTV VMAs.

Christina Applegate -- nominated for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for Samantha Who -- quipped to Ryan Seacrest on the E! pre-show, "I just have to wonder: Who's gonna pull a Kanye?"

A few minutes later Survivor host Jeff Probst made a similar joke to Seacrest. Both are nominated in the outstanding host for a reality or reality-competition program category. 

"If Ryan wins...I'm pulling a Kanye!" said Probst.


Giuliana Rancic asked Alec Baldwin, who is nominated as outstanding lead actor for 30 Rock, what he'd do if somebody "pulled a Kanye."

Said Baldwin: "Only if it's Tracy Morgan ... I'm sure there will be a lot of Kanye jokes in the opening. We don't want to screw that up."

The show airs live from L.A.'s Nokia Theater at 8 p.m. ET.
