ASME 2012 Nominations, By The Numbers
(NEW YORK) The 2012 ASME noms are in: Once the complete lack of shock of New York and The New Yorker sweeping the selection sets in and the surprise fades over nods for underdogs Vice and The Fader, it's time to hit the fashion-centric books! First up, GQ scored in five categories, including General Excellence, Print; competition for that top spot includes New York and The New Yorker, both clocking in with six noms total, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Vice's first-ever foray into ASME territory. Fellow men's title Esquire garnered three nominations, in the categories of Magazine Section, Feature Writing, and Essays and Criticism.
On the women's and fashion fronts, Glamour, Vogue, and W each earned two noms. Glamour and W made the cut in the Women's Magazines category, alongside titles skewering to decidedly different demographics: Real Simple, O, The Oprah Magazine, and More. Art trumped copy in the case of Vogue's duo of nods, in the categories of Photography and Feature Photography, while Marie Claire is a contender for the Public Interest category, for a feature on breast cancer.
For the foodie set, Saveur and Bon Appetit got one nomination each, while niche lifestyle mags in the mix include Garden & Gun, Country Living (in the ASME running for the first time!), and Field & Stream. As for the regionals, San Francisco, Denver's 5280, Dallas' D Magazine, Los Angeles, and Texas Monthly, with the latter two, both Emmis Communications titles, garnering two noms apiece. Also of note: Interview and Vanity Fair weighed in with two nods each.
By publishing house, Conde racked up 24 noms, trailed by Hearst's 10 nods and Time Inc.'s total of seven.
This year's Magazine Editors' Hall of Fame Award will go to Terry McDonell, editor of Time Inc.'s Sports Group, which spans a slew of Sports Illustrated-branded titles. McDonell's former EIC posts include Us Weekly, Men's Journal, and Esquire. The winners, plus McDonell, will be celebrated on May 3 at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.
