News   Annual Nightlife Awards Sets 2005 Date
The 2005 Nightlife Awards, which celebrate the best in New York cabaret, jazz and comedy, will be presented Jan. 31, 2005, at New York's Town Hall.

The 7 PM event, which boasts "no acceptance speeches — just pure entertainment," will feature performances from all of the evening's winners. The annual awards are judged by members of the New York press: last year's judges included The New York Observer's Rex Reed and's Barbara and Scott Siegel. More than one dozen judges will take part in the nominating-voting process. In a previous statement, critic Scott Siegel said, "It is our particular intention to give New York City's nightlife — its clubs and performers — the same importance in the public mindset as Broadway. This is an award that will have immediate credibility and importance because it will be given by the broadest possible spectrum of this city's most influential authorities on cabaret, jazz, and comedy from those who see acts in the big rooms to those who cover the nightlife waterfront."

Outstanding Cabaret Female Vocalist in a Major Engagement
