Clad in only a man's shirt and black heels, "Sex and the City" siren Kim Cattrall set an irreverent tone as hostess for the 2000 New York Awards show last night at NBC's Studio 8H, the Rockefeller Center home of "Saturday Night Live," reports PEOPLE. Cohost John Leguizamo, meanwhile, got in a few zingers about such topics as President Clinton's infidelity -- with Monica Lewinsky right there in the crowd, as were Barbara Walters and MTV's Carson Daly. The winners, selected by New York magazine, included awards in comedy to Jimmy Fallon of "SNL," in TV to Edie Falco of "The Sopranos," in music to Lou Reed and in fashion to Kenneth Cole. Lifetime achievement recipient Regis Philbin said his career started as a page in the NBC studios, right outside the doors of studio 8H (where, he pointed out, he was never allowed inside), until a trip to a fortune teller convinced him to take a job as a stage hand in Hollywood. "The smartest thing that I ever did in my life was to come back to New York," said Reege, "and it led to this award, and it's great to be finally allowed inside 8H."
