Mayor Mike ‘Turns’ on the soaps

N.Y. Awards presented to Lansbury, Meyers, Daniels

At Gracie Mansion, journos, politicos and local production bigwigs rubbed shoulders under a giant pavilion in Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s backyard as the Made in New York Awards were presented to Angela Lansbury, Seth Meyers and Lee Daniels, among others.

Bloomberg’s intro aped the trademark v.o. from the recently canceled skein “Law and Order:” “In the awards show system, there are two types of equally handsome hosts: Ryan Seacrest and Mike Bloomberg. This is Mike Bloomberg.” Along with the official awards, Bloomberg recognized “L&O” and “As the World Turns,” praising the shows’ contribution to the city’s media-related revenue stream.

“I know I speak for everyone here when I say that we thank Dick Wolf for all he’s done for New York City,” Bloomberg said. Hizzoner got chuckles when he claimed that he was “not really a devotee” of “ATWT” and proceeded to rattle off a dozen involved plot points from the venerable drama.

While Bloomberg earned yuks, the loudest applause of the early-evening ceremony went to Lansbury, who received her award and entertained a few photojournos blocking her egress as she slipped out to prepare for the 8 p.m. curtain at “A Little Night Music.” Bloomberg didn’t miss a chance to plug Sunday’s Tony Awards, either, although by the end of the ceremony his civic-spiritedness had most of the aud talking over him while he tried to drum up interest in local to-dos like Internet Week. –
