We've sifted through thousands of your nominations for best stand-up comedy show, best street artist, best podcast and more in L.A. Weekly's annual Reader's Choice Awards. Now that the top contenders have been revealed, we need your help to determine the ultimate winners.
Is the best art gallery in L.A. iam8bit, Gallery 1988 or Bergamot Station? Does Upright Citizens Brigade, The Groundlings or The Lab at Hollywood Improv deserve the title of best improv group? Should @bonnietsang, @hermosalocal or @letmeeatcake be crowned L.A.'s best Instagrammer? Cast your votes in for these and dozens of other awards — and don't forget to include a quick phrase defending your choices. We'll be giving a $500 American Express gift card to the reader who best makes his or her case. (We expect you to spend it on the very best cultural pursuits L.A. has to offer.)
The ballot is live, and polls will be open in this second and final round through Wed., Sept. 9. Find out who the 100 winners are in our Best of L.A. issue, which hits stands Oct. 1.
