OC Weekly continues its winning ways in 2010, following up regional and national journalism honors with 22 awards from the Orange County Press Club last night.

Multiple winners included Nick Schou, R. Scott Moxley, Gustavo Arellano, Spencer Kornhaber, Vickie Chang and the Navel Gazing news blog.



At a dinner ceremony at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, Schou received the Investigative Watchdog Award 2010 to go along with his five other awards, including first place for Best News Feature Story.

Moxley was named Best Columnist, an award he can place on his mantle next to his three other awards, including first place nods for Best News Story and Best Opinion Piece.

Arellano took The Real O.C. Award, which singles out a story that best captures this crazy county of ours. He also picked up three other awards.

As you will see in the list below, Chang and Kornhaber each won two first-place awards, Navel Gazing was named the Best News Blog and finished second for Best Blog, and Stick a Fork In It was awarded Best Food Blog:
