NO magazine dominated the competition at the National Magazine Awards in New York this year, but VQR -- the tiny, obscure Virginia Quarterly Review -- came pretty close. Nominated for six awards in four categories, the University of Virginia-based literary journal with a circulation of 7,000 snagged two awards -- one for fiction, the other for general excellence. "We're pleased," VQR's editor, Ted Genoways, said after the ceremony in New York Tuesday night. "We're still trying to soak it all in."

The New Yorker won five National Magazine Awards on Wednesday night, but that's hardly news: The New Yorker wins National Magazine Awards like the 1927 Yankees won baseball games. The real buzz out of the annual ceremony was that Martha Stewart, America's perkiest ex-convict, won two awards and showed up to get them despite being under house arrest. "She is allowed out for 48 hours a week to do work, and this was a work-related moment," said Stewart's spokeswoman, Samantha Schabel.

Esquire, America's oldest men's magazine, was the big winner at the National Magazine Awards, picking up four of the prestigious annual prizes. The New Yorker, the winningest magazine in the 39-year history of the awards, collected three more prizes. For the second time in three years, Newsweek, owned by the Washington Post Co., won the coveted prize for general excellence for magazines with a circulation of more than 2 million.

With simplistic advice columns and reams of cheesy honeymoon cruise ads, bridal magazines have long been the ugly stepchildren of the publishing industry. But for the first time, one has been nominated for a National Magazine Award. Elegant Bride is in the running for an award in the photography category to be presented May 7, alongside Vanity Fair, Conde Nast Traveler, National Geographic and GQ.

David Remnick was clearly the man of the hour. "I'm green with jealousy," Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner said as he shook the hand of the editor of the New Yorker. The 75-year-old magazine had just won an unprecedented five National Magazine Awards, including one for general excellence in the 400,000-1 million circulation category. "I know we'll pay in hell for winning five in one year," Remnick said after Wednesday's ceremony, which is often likened to the Oscars for periodicals.
