Put this in your .screenrc:
escape ``  (That's two backtick characters.)

Now you just hit " ` some-screen-key " to run screen commands.(No double 
quotes obviously)  C-a will now work properly for emacs.

You can use any two characters after the escape option.  I use the
backtick because I have little use for it in day-to-day editing.
Have fun,
