Three months ago, we asked for your help in picking the HuffPost Game Changers -- 100 innovators, visionaries, and leaders who are harnessing the power of new media to reshape their fields and change the world.
You responded with a host of great suggestions.
We then began announcing our choices for the top 10 Game Changers in Entertainment, Green, Politics, Style, Business, Sports, Philanthropy, Media, Wellness and Technology -- and asked you to weigh in on who the Ultimate Game Changer is in each category.
Again you answered the call, casting over 1.7 million votes. Thank you!
Now it's time to reveal your picks for the Ultimate 10.
There were more than a few surprises. For instance, despite the presence of a number of very recognizable names in Entertainment, Reed Hastings, the founder of Netflix, took the lead in that category on the first day and never gave it up, going wire-to-wire. The same it's-not-the-name-it's-the-game dynamic took place in Sports, where MLB.com's Bob Bowman beat out superstars like Shaquille O'Neal and Serena Williams.
So check out the slideshow below to see who our readers picked as the Ultimate 10 Game Changers.
And be sure to keep an eye out for who is changing the game as we head into 2010. We're already starting to put together next year's HuffPost Game Changer list.
Congratulations to our 100 HuffPost Game Changers... and a special online ovation for the Ultimate 10.
