Just when you thought literary awards season was over, there were not one but two occasions to get dressed up and applaud great writers and their publications Thursday. They both took place in New York -- meaning we didn't have to hit the dry cleaner -- but they nevertheless deserve notice. Dennis Lehane's "Live By Night" took the top honor -- best novel -- at the Edgar Awards, presented by the Mystery Writers of America. Lehane is a versatile writer who can set mysteries in the past -- "Live By Night" is about a Prohibition-era rum-runner -- and the present, as well as write for the screen.

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.

Robin Wright, a national security correspondent in the Washington bureau of The Times, has won a 1988 National Magazine Award for an account published in the New Yorker last September on life in Iran toward the end of that nation's long and punishing war with Iraq. Wright's account, prepared shortly before she joined The Times, was distinguished by the richness of the first-person accounts she was able to collect from Iranians as they tried to carry on their lives in the midst of the war. The National Magazine Awards, the most prestigious for magazine writing, are presented by the American Society of Magazine Editors.

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.

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.

Tuesday's luncheon at the Waldorf-Astoria tasted especially good to staffers of the new food magazine Saveur, which vaulted out of obscurity to win two National Magazine Awards for work published last year. In the 30th annual presentation sponsored by the American Society of Magazine Editors, 2-year-old Saveur won awards in the categories of photography and special interests for Gene Bourg's piece on the Acadian region of Louisiana.

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."

How do you measure the quality of a magazine? When it comes to editorial merit, the National Magazine Awards serve as a convenient yardstick. The awards are handed out annually by the American Society of Magazine Editors, a jury of top editors and art directors whose decisions go a long way to proclaim what's hot and what's not.

Much of the inspired lunacy on "Seinfeld" does not translate as comically in print. After all, how do you capture in words and still photos Kramer's rubber-limbed entrances into Jerry's apartment, the slow boil behind "Hello, Newman," or the rumba-swinging scene in which Kramer helps the fleshy Mr. Costanza slip into a "manssiere"? But as the staff of Entertainment Weekly was thrilled to learn last week, all things Seinfeld can be captured and published with award-winning respect.
