In Other LA Press Club News
I'm a finalist in three categories in tonight's LA Press Club Awards. Don't laugh -- two of them are for headlines. I'm a big fan of the guy who writes the New York Post's -- the best ever (at least, that I've seen) being "Headless Body In Topless Bar," and I crack my skull every week trying to write good ones.

Here are my nominations. I'm up against my good friend Andrew Gumbel in one category.

C5. SIGNED COMMENTARY

* Amy Alkon, syndicated columnist
* John Boston, The Signal
* Andrew Gumbel, Los Angeles CityBeat
* Mark Lacter, Los Angeles Business Journal

B13. HEADLINE

* Amy Alkon, syndicated columnist, "Oaf Wiedersehen"
* Steve Eames, Los Angeles Times, "Star Trek Bit Players Cling On"
* Jillian O’Connor, Los Angeles Daily News, “Ode to Joysticks”
* Helen Reynolds, Los Angeles Daily News, “The Sound of Silents”
* Rodney Richey, Los Angeles Daily News, “Rock of Aged”

C13. HEADLINE

* Amy Alkon, syndicated columnist, “Cain, Enabled”
* Jim Farber, Daily Breeze, “Show Me the Mummy”
* Shoshana Lewin, Morris Mazur and Adam Wills, The Jewish Journal, “Let My People Merlot”

My two favorites headlines, both from The Onion:

Holy Shit! Man Lands On The Fucking Moon!

&

(big letters) Jesus Returns
(smaller letters) To The N.B.A.

Good luck- I do like the "Cain Enabled" and "Show Me The Mummy" equally. I think the "Star Trek Bit Players Cling On" is a shoo in.
