Last night, the Soho House Awards returned for the second year in a row – and this time we took the ceremony Stateside. In partnership with Porsche, we returned to champion and spotlight some of the most impactful creatives in the world, celebrating the biggest up-and-coming talent, established artists making waves right now, and those who have made significant contributions to their respective industries and communities.
Hosted at DUMBO House in New York, playwright, actor and philanthropist Jeremy O. Harris (who featured on a Soho House magazine cover earlier this year) played presenter for the night. He entertained guests with stories about his time at Yale, and shared various anecdotes about his relationship with some of the winners and presenters, such as Evan Mock, who he starred in HBO’s Gossip Girl with, plus Laurie Simmons, who he said sparked his keen eye for art.
Ama Lou opened the show with her new song, I Came Home Late, while the crowd – including Alan Cumming, Kaia Gerber, Paul Mescal, Daniel Kaluuya and Mae Martin – sipped on Patrón Picantes and Rock Angel rosé as they watched humble acceptance speeches, humorous introductions and heart-warming thank yous. This year, we introduced a brand-new award, the Golden Picante Unsung Hero, highlighting those who made a positive impact in their industry, community and the wider world, which was awarded to Saidah Belo-Osagie.
