About the same time that Italian filmmaker Roberto Benigni was gleefully thanking the world for the first of his two Academy Awards, Paula Weiser was on a smaller stage doing a similar thing. Although she didn't climb around on chairs or kiss all those within arms' reach, the big winner at last week's 1999 Addy Awards ceremony was plenty proud. "It's an honor to be recognized like that," said the 34-year-old president of Weiser Litho Inc., a Westlake Village printing and design company.

An Apple Computer commercial that features a wheelchair-bound teen-ager zipping around Venice Beach took top honors at a major advertising awards ceremony Sunday night in Los Angeles.
