LOS ANGELES - Miramax chairman Harvey Weinstein announced his company's new ESPY campaign this week at a dinner in Beverly Hills, leading many industry insiders to wonder whether the corpulent executive had gone completely insane and power mad.

"We all know about Harvey's Oscar campaigns," said Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer. "They're the best in the business, there's no doubt about that. But Miramax really doesn't have anything to do with sports, so I don't know what he's thinking as far as the ESPYs are concerned."

"We're pushing Queen Latifah for Best Female Golfer, and we're trying to get Ben Affleck nominated for Male Athlete of the Year," Weinstein said when reached for comment at his lair. "Of course, those two are not athletes, but I just heard about these so-called 'ESPYs,' and if there's an award out there to be won, rest assured Harvey Weinstein will win it! Bwah-ha-ha-haaa!!"
