National Entertainment Journalism Award Winners Announced

The winners of the LA Press club’s 2nd annual National Entertainment Journalism Awards were announced at a reception Thursday night. A number of local journalists took home awards, including Patrick Goldstein of the LA Times for Best Feature in the online category, and George Pennacchio of KABC-TV for Best News Story in the television category. Ella Taylor of the LA Weekly won Best Critic in the print category for the second year in a row. The ceremony also honored Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic Joe Morgenstern for his career achievements.

Surprisingly, there were no awards for Nikki Finke, who cleaned up at the ceremony last year. But maybe she took pity on the competition this time and kept herself out of the running.
