RadarOnline.com won five awards at the National Entertainment Journalism Awards, held Sunday night at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.
Radar’s unique blend of exclusive breaking news and features has helped bring its award total to 10 in the past two years.
David Perel and Radar’s staff won first place in the TV/Video/Film News category for our expose, J.Lo’s Reality TV Show Caught On Video Faking Scenes.
The judge’s had this to say about our scoop on the hit show South Beach Tow: “An old-fashioned scoop here as J.Lo's South Beach reality show is caught openly faking a fight between a tow truck driver and a motorist. This is said to be the first time a reality show has been so plainly unmasked as scripted, directed, and phony!”
The site finished third this year in the Entertainment Website category.
Jen Heger, Radar’s assistant managing editor, was awarded third place in Journalist of the Year, All Media Platforms, category. She also finished third in the investigative news category for her blockbuster exclusive: Michael Jackson’s Fingerprints Not On Bottles of Drug That Killed Him.
RadarOnline.com also was awarded second place in the Video Feature, Celebrity Oriented category for entertainment editor Alexis Tereszcuk's Kelly Osbourne Video Interview: ‘I Am A Hypocrite For Drinking.'
Highlights of the night included The Newsroom's Jeff Daniels taking center stage to play the guitar and sing a hilarious song he wrote in honor of Fonda titled Abs, Buns & Thighs — and a special shout out to RadarOnline.com from comedian Kathy Griffin when she got on stage!
