Rihanna's tribute to "Jaws" and Amy Schumer's sexy nod to "Star Wars" were also honored by the American Society of Magazine Editors.
The line between what's editorial and what's advertising is about to get even blurrier.
Plus, the National Magazine Awards 2015 finalists have been announced.
As she transitions into acting, she wants to play "strong" female roles. Right on, Cara.
The American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) has just announced the finalists for the 2012 National Magazine Awards, and among the usual suspects (The New Yorker and New York), there were a few surprises. For one, Vice received it's first ASME nom, for General Excellence no less, alongside The New Yorker, New York, Bloomberg Businessweek and GQ in the General-Interest Magazine category, which is kind of the equivalent for getting nominated for "Best Picture" at the Oscars. It's certainly a feat for the magazine which started out as an underground publication that prided itself on being anything but mainstream. We'd like to think it's all thanks to the mag's fascinating exploration of canine bondage, or their coverage of London fashion week on acid, but you know, that could be just us. Also of note is that only two fashion titles--Glamour and W--got nods for General Excellence. W received more ASME nominations than any other fashion mag in 2011, and 2012's list confirms that EIC Stefano Tonchi is indeed on a roll--much to the chagrin of competitor Vogue, no doubt.
