The Made in NY awards were created by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg to fete the city’s entertainment and digital-media industries. Last night, together with the commissioner of the mayor’s office of media and entertainment, Katherine Oliver, handed out the prizes. “I was actually made in New Jersey,” Ms. Streep said, referring to her birthplace, “but I was made happy in New York.” That was a riff on a remark made earlier by Ms. Goldberg, who said: “I was made in New York, originally, and then several times remade in New York.”

Mr. De Niro and Ms. Streep, who appeared together in the 1984 movie “Falling in Love,” kidded each other in their remarks, primarily about acting honors. “I’m proud I have the same number of these as Meryl,” Mr. De Niro said in accepting his award, adding, with a deft pause, “For now.” “By this time next year, she’ll have seven,” he added. “Last October, she beat me out for Italian-American Man of the Year.” At least, Mr. De Niro said, “I got mine first.” Ms. Streep, who received her award after Mr. De Niro, gave as good as she got. “I can’t believe you gave this to Bob De Niro before me,” she said, then paused to note that “Supporting Actor always precedes” the Academy Award for Best Actress.

    @ Jane: Yes, she said, that she’ll give the money, which she became wih the award, to the “kick-starter”, who were at the ceremony, too.

    This is wonderful! Thank you so much for bringing all these videos and pictures to us that we wouldn’t be able to see otherwise.
    Meryl is great as always, loved the joke with Robert De Niro, he is probably the only one to whom she could say what she said without sounding snotty.
    PS: Does anyone understand what she says at the end after she says ‘I’m really proud to be with this gang’?
