It is in the #news that the George Polk Awards have been awarded. So far the English Wikipedia has not caught up to that fact.
None of the other recipients of the award were known in Wikidata. By using the "AutoList" it was easy enough to add them all. Of the three new recipients only two were known to Wikidata. They have also been includedas well. Many of the people were not known to be humans and this has been remedied.
Given the wonderful tools that are available, it does not need to take much effort to add a lot of data to Wikidata.
