Sydney Morning Herald & The Age culture editor-at-large Michael Idato has won the gong for best personality profile by a foreign correspondent at the Los Angeles Press Club.

Idato, who is based in Los Angeles, was awarded the prize for a Spectrum cover story titled The name’s Orlick: Why Stanley Tucci . He won the same award last year for a story about Priscilla Presley.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled that Michael Idato’s excellent work has been recognised by the LA Press Club,” said Patrick Elligett, editor of The Age. “Idato’s ability to look beyond the superficial and provide incisive reporting is unparalleled in the world of entertainment journalism, as is his wit and subject knowledge.”

Idato also came second place in the coveted print journalist of the year category, an accolade he also won at last year’s gala. Elsewhere, Idato came third place in the best news story by a foreign corespondent category for an article titled Zelensky v Eurovision: A political song and dance over the future of Europe.

He was the only foreign journalist nominated for the prestigious journalist of the year award, which honours the best print journalist for publications with circulations of more than 50,000.

Congrats (again), Michael.
