With the end of the year, and the holiday season, it’s that time again: With input from you, our cherished readers along with a top secret panel of experts and weirdos, we’re honored to present the nominees for The 2013 Philebrity Awards. And as we’ve done over the last few years, on the day the polls below close, we’ll also be featuring some of the city’s most beloved music and comedy talents for a two-fisted awards/holiday show that is unlike any other in the city. The resulting event, The Philebrity Awards & Xmas Pageant on Thursday December 19 at Johnny Brenda’s brought to you by Zipcar, celebrates the best (and a little bit of the worst) of this fair city, from those in the arts and media to those more unsung heroes in the non-profit/do-gooding world. Best of Philly this ain’t: It’s not about buying shit, people and things from the suburbs are gloriously, totally ignored and even the event itself is free to attend. What it is, rather, is a raucous holiday melange of music, comedy and the can-do spirit that makes Philadelphia one of the greatest cities in the world. Without further ado, we declare these polls open! May the best folks win, join us on Twitter to discuss the polls, with the hashtag #philebrityawards.
