Current nominees, past winners at N.Y. Oscar fete

Mayor David Dinkins introduced the first Academy Awards luncheon for New York-based nominees March 23 at the Russian Tea Room, an event instigated by Arthur Manson and Sylvia Miles of the Academy’s N.Y. screening committee.

The mayor saluted not only current nominees but past winners who live in New York, sounding the rallying cry: “We are a city of big dreams and big talent.”

The mayor’s new commissioner for film, TV and broadcasting, Richard Brick, amplified his boss’s remarks and announced that the city would be honoring the Kanin family (Garson, Fay and the recently deceased Michael) in June at the Museum of Modern Art.

Corresponding to the traditional West Coast luncheon for Oscar hopefuls, a large turnout of nominees attended, each presented with a sweatshirt and scroll. Among them were directors James Ivory, Robert Altman, William Miles and Nina Rosenblum; producer David Brown; actors Stephen Rea and Miranda Richardson; and composers John Barry, Alan Menken, Arne Glimcher and Alan Bergman.
