Bloomberg gets the job done

Thesps proud to be 'Made in NY'

NEW YORK — Planners of awards shows should definitely take some advice from Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Hizzoner unveiled the first “Made in NY” awards at Gracie Mansion June 5, dishing out the nods, congratulating everyone (not least himself) and swiftly ankling the podium in a staggering 22 minutes.

Admittedly, he wasn’t dealing with the number of categories of, say, the Oscars. But the ceremony had an efficient, unsentimental air that was gratefully received.

Award recipients — who have “made significant contributions to the city’s entertainment industry” — included Marcia Gay Harden, “Law & Order” vet Tamara Tunie, Actors’ Fund exec director Joseph Benincasa, Matthew Miller (prexy of the Assn. of Independent Commercial Producers), Columbia U. grad Kamaria Alvy Johnson, and Noah Baumbach and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Latter two were MIA, lensing an at-present-untitled project — where else? — in New York City.
