Scottish actor ALAN CUMMING slammed New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his opposition to same-sex marriages at an awards ceremony in the city on Tuesday (29MAR05) - and received a standing ovation.

As GOLDENEYE star Cumming picked up a GAY AND LESBIAN ALLIANCE AGAINST DEFAMATION (GLAAD) award at New York's Marriott Marquis hotel, he criticised the Republican leader for being dismissive of the gay community.

And Cumming was loudly applauded when he described Bloomberg as "not a true New Yorker", writes website PAGESIX.COM.
