The bad news is that we didn't win the Ellie that we were nominated for. The good news is that we had a great time.

The awards had quite a mix of presenters, including CNN's Anderson Cooper, Meg Ryan, Alek Wek, and Martha Stewart. Wynton Marsalis was in the building. Francis Ford Coppola was there because the magazine he founded, Zoetrope: All-Story, was up for an award.

Before the awards, some FPers met a fellow named Jeff Bercovici of Women’s Wear Daily, who initially told us, “Oh, Foreign Policy, I think I voted for you guys” in the Gawker Ellies pool.
