Holt revealed the fact saying:

"The cover contest judges had tough decisions to make this year, Any time you have to choose between an already legendary Annie Leibovitz shoot on the cover of Vanity Fair, a Mark Seliger comedy special on GQ and one of the year's most talked-about news covers, 'Cosby: The Women' on New York—plus Serena Williams on both Sports Illustrated and New York—that's a good time to be a magazine editor and an even better time to be a magazine reader."
