And the ASME Award Goes to…

The Ellie Award.

The Ellie Award.

The American Society of Magazine Editors held its annual award ceremony tonight at the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square. They gave out elephant-shaped statues to magazines and everyone clapped.

New York magazine got the Ellie for Magazine of the Year, which they can add to the award they won yesterday for Cover of the Year (that aerial shot of a half blacked-out city during Hurricane Sandy was pretty good). Some magazines just have it all!

But there were other winners, too. Although none was very surprising, The New Yorker failed to nab a single statue, despite some nominations.

The Atlantic, New York and Texas Monthly each won two awards and National Geographic won four (two for digital media). Speaking of which, two digital-only publications won awards–Pitchfork nabbed the prize for General Excellence, Digital Media, and Slate, not counter intuitively, got the award for Columns and Commentary. Mother Jones won the video award for the “Full Secret Video of Private Romney Fundraiser” (remember that whole 47 percent thing that may or may not have helped re-elect Barack Obama?). The Paris Review won in the category of “Literary, Political and Professional Magazines” and Vogue won the “Service and Fashion Magazine” category.
