The Hollywood Reporter won 10 National Arts & Entertainment Journalism Awards for best TV critic, best entertainment industry/arts investigative story and best portrait photo, among others, at the 13th annual awards show.
Also during the virtual ceremony, which took place Friday night, Aaron Sorkin accepted the sixth annual Veritas Award on behalf of his Netflix film The Trial of the Chicago 7.
“When we started shooting [the film] in 2019, we knew that this was an important chapter of American history but also chillingly relevant to current facts,” he said in accepting the honor. He also expressed his “heartfelt gratitude” to the real people portrayed in the film “for speaking the truth … in the face of injustice.”
Elsewhere, THR also was honored with several other awards, which are handed out by the Los Angeles Press Club. A full list of THR’s wins follows; a full list of winners can be found here.
