Giuliani grudgingly gives award to Moore

The Awful Truth. That’s exactly what New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani had to face when he was forced to award Michael Moore, creator of the show with that name, an Emmy nomination certificate. Although Giuliani’s office of Film, Theatre & Broadcasting will not grant Moore a film permit to shoot in New York City, Moore accepted his consolation prize with “bear hugging” humility.

Held at City Hall, the ceremony recognized those nominated for an Emmy from New York-oriented shows. Along with Giuliani, chairwoman and CEO of the National Academy of Motion of Television Arts & Sciences Meryl Marshall gave certificates to actors, writers and producers such as “The Sopranos” Lorraine Bracco, James Gandolfini and Steven Hill. Guiliani credited them with helping make New York the “center of so many arts,” representing “creativity and diversity.” Guiliani also praised this year’s nominated shows for helping bring a number of jobs to New York City.

After the ceremony, a reception followed catered by Roy’s New York. Also on hand were “Law and Order’s” Sam Waterston, “Sopranos” producer Brad Grey and “Inside the Actors Studio” host James Lipton.
