Screening Gotham: Awards Season Reprise Edition

Some of today's movie news of note from around New York:

--So you've probably heard that Nation film critic Stuart Klawans walked away from the recent National Magazine Awards with the top prize in Reviews and Criticism. Everybody has been talking about it, but none more elegantly and reverently than Looker's Lawrence Levi, a longtime Klawans fan who took his shot-calling one step further in an item published last week: "Isn't it time David Remnick put David Denby or Anthony Lane out to pasture and gave Klawans the critical catbird seat?" Hell, just put them both out to pasture. Klawans snores more sentiently than either of those creeps write.

--The School of Visual Arts, which year after year graduates some of the best young animators in the country, handed out its year-end Dusty awards the other night at the Directors Guild Theater. ScreenGrab's Bryan Whitefield was there; he doesn't list many of the winners, but the recap is useful and precedes an interview with SVA alum (and Everything's Gone Green director) Paul Fox.

--Via MovieMaker: Happy birthday, Rosario Dawson!

--Radar reports that for the first time in 35 years, Woody Allen will have a short story published in Playboy. His editor at Random House admits a few jitters ("We didn't know how it would look"), but evidently it's nothing a Stephen King name-drop and a nice plug for the Woodman's new fiction anthology Mere Anarchy couldn't fix. Thanks anyway; we'll wait for the dollar-hardcover cart at the Strand.
