Perennial nominees lead this year's list of finalists for the National Magazine Awards. The New Yorker
snapped up 11 nominations, Esquire
also scored 11 and The Atlantic Monthly
and Rolling Stone
claimed four each. But there were some surprises as well: The American Scholar
garnered three nominations -- including one for general excellence in the under-100,000 circulation category -- and shelter-design newcomer Nest
nabbed three as well. Further down the list, Vanity Fair
scored "only" two nominations apiece -- something that likely displeases GQ
Editor in Chief Art Cooper, whose former No. 2, David Granger, now helms Esquire.
Alongside standard-issue general excellence nominees The New Yorker, Men's Journal, Gourmet
in the 400,000 to 1,000,000 category was first-time nominee Jane.
