CONGRATULATIONS… FROM THE MAIL ROOM

Director Michael Moore, emceeing the Independent Feature Project’s Gotham Awards Sept.19, drew more than a few nods of recognition when he charted the complicated family trees of the corporate sponsors at the event.

But the real smiles of empathy came when Moore read from the stack of congratulatory telegrams and letters he received following his recent Emmy win for “TV Nation.” All of the well-wishers were reps from his own agency, the ever-in-flux CAA.

Moore didn’t recognize a name.
