New York Mag, Condé Dominate Ellies

New York wins four, New Yorker nabs three; Wintour gets emotional

It was a New York kind of night at the 2010 National Magazine Awards. New York magazine captured four Ellies — the most it’s won since 2007, when it took five – including one for general excellence, and the New Yorker won three, part of Condé Nast’s impressive bounty.

Condé Nast won eight awards in all, including Glamour’s upset of New York and the Atlantic for the first-ever Magazine of the Year award.

Wired won two, including a design Ellie for the third year in a row and one for its J.J. Abrams-edited "Mystery" issue.

Vogue editor Anna Wintour was, surprisingly, emotional in accepting an induction into the Magazine Editors Hall of Fame. Wintour – whose brother introduced her via videotape from London before New Yorker editor David Remnick did live — thanked Condé chief Si Newhouse. “It would be impossible to imagine a more caring boss,” she said.

The ceremony took place inside Alice Tully Hall in New York on Thursday, where about 700 editors and publishers gathered to honor their colleagues in an industry that’s been especially battered the last couple years.

Several celebrities — including Brooke Shields, Cynthia Rowley, “The Marriage Ref”’s Tom Papa, New York Rangers left wing (and former Vogue intern) Sean Avery and “Lost”’s Rebecca Mader — presented awards.
