We can’t let the Golden Globes overshadow last week’s Cinema Eye Honors in New York, where local director Errol Morris’s documentary “Tabloid’’ was one of the night’s big winners. Arlington’s John Kusiak, who wrote the music for “Tabloid,’’ took home the prize for outstanding achievement in an original music score. Morris’s film also won the Cinema Eye award for outstanding achievement in graphic design and animation, an honor that went to Rob Feng and Jeremy Landman. Kusiak, who also worked on Morris’s “The Fog of War,’’ said this was his first time at the Cinema Eye Honors, which are like the Oscars for nonfiction film. He got the chance to see “Fahrenheit 9/11’’ director Michael Moore at the event, as well as Boston native Frederick Wiseman, who received a legacy award for his 1967 documentary “Titicut Follies,’’ which followed patients at the Bridgewater State Hospital for the criminally insane. Kusiak admitted that the Cinema Eye Honors don’t have Oscar-style after-parties, but the group did have a small get-together at a bar down the street. “It was fun,’’ he said.
