Last week, we announced our picks for the top Game Changers in Entertainment and Green -- the innovators, visionaries, and leaders who are harnessing the power of new media to reshape those fields and change the world. And we asked you to vote for the Ultimate Game Changer in each category.
The response has been tremendous, with close to half a million votes cast.
So far, NetFlix founder Reed Hastings is out in front in Entertainment, followed by Radiohead, and Andy Samberg and the Lonely Island crew. Ultimate Game Changer voting is still open, so fans of Ashton Kutcher, will.i.am, Jimmy Fallon, Taylor Swift, Nikki Finke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay... let your voices be heard!
In the Green category, Ken Cook of the Environmental Working Group is in the lead, followed by environmental activist Bill McKibben, and disposable culture provocateur Annie Leonard. Check out their entries and the entries of the other Green Game Changers -- eco-adventurer David de Rothschild, "buycott" organizer Brent Shulkin, carbon footprint analyst Gavin Starks, home gardening guru Roger Doiron, eco-entrepreneur Graham Hill, ClimateCount's Gary Hirshberg, and "Green Porno" auteur Isabella Rossellini -- and vote for your favorites.
Today we are announcing the Game Changers in two more categories, Politics and Style. Look over the slideshows we've put together giving you the rundown of who we picked, why we picked them, and how they are changing the game. Then vote for the Ultimate Game Changer.

Once all ten categories have been presented, we'll announce the 10 Ultimate Game Changers.
