finalist ‘celebs’ cover 2009
ASME cover awards, finalist 2009: best cover in entertainment & celebrity:
When you have America’s top political humorists Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart in your magazine dissecting the most all-consuming presidential election in decades, you’d better have a cover worthy of their incisive, biting wit. And Entertainment Weekly did, by having the comedians outrageously recreate The New Yorker’s controversial cartoon cover depicting Barack Obama as an al Qaeda terrorist and his wife Michelle as a militant Black Panther. The result: a pitch-perfect joke that satirized the satire and reaffirmed the Comedy Central hosts’ status as the ultimate (and funniest) voices of reason in a turbulent national debate.
