But which brands are the biggest repeat winners?
We charted the biggest winners in the last 10 lists, counting only appearances on the A-List proper, including the No. 1 spot otherwise known as Magazine of the Year, and excluding honors such as Editor of the Year and Launch of the Year.
Real Simple had the most honors on the last 10 lists, powered by a dominant stretch in the mid-2000s, while Food Network Magazine had the most recent run of several consecutive appearances, although it finally fell off the list in 2013.
The list is traditionally a diverse affair, and that's borne out by the chart: Despite 100 A-List slots awarded since 2004, only 12 titles won three times or more.
