AWARD-WORTHY BID

And the Oscar for most stubborn citizens goes to... New Yorkers! With the 2003 Academy Awards just three months away, a group of Gotham media giants is renewing its attempt to move at least part of the ceremony to the Big Apple, Variety reports. The committee — which includes Miramax co-chair Harvey Weinstein, actor Robert De Niro and director Spike Lee — is expected to send a letter to the Oscar brass outlining its proposals by next week. Last summer, the group tried — and failed — to move the entire show to New York.
