Glamour Crowned Magazine of the Year
Usual suspects take home honors at ASMEâ€™s annual ceremony.
NEW YORKâ€”CondĂ© Nastâ€™s Glamour went home with top honors during the American Society of Magazine Editorsâ€™ annual National Magazine Awards Thursday night, winning Magazine of the Year. It beat out a cast of other top contenders, including Fast Company, The Atlantic, Menâ€™s Health and New York.
But it was New York that stole the show here at the Alice Tully Hall, receiving four â€śEllieâ€ť awards, including one for general excellence in the 250,000 to 500,000 circulation category. â€śYou guys are so nice to us,â€ť New York editor Adam Moss said while accepting the award.
Other multiple award winners included: The New Yorker, which nabbed three awards; National Geographic, which also took home three, including general excellence in the more than 2 million circ. category; and two Ellies went to Wired, which won best design for the second year in a row.
General excellence awards were also given to San Francisco (less than 100,000 circ.), Mother Jones (100,000 to 250,000 circ.), GQ (500,000 to 1 million circ.) and Menâ€™s Health (1 million to 2 million circ.).
ASME also honored Vogue editor Anna Wintour (appearing without her trademark dark sunglasses), inducting her into its Editorsâ€™ Hall of Fame. The award was presented to her by The New Yorker editor-in-chief David Remnick.
And, as usual, the gala wasnâ€™t without its share of celebrities, including actress Brooke Shields, fashion designer Cynthia Rowley, The Marriage Refâ€™s Tom Papa, New York Rangers left wing (and former Vogue intern) Sean Avery, and Lostâ€™s Rebecca Mader.
