We need you to vote for the Crunchies. It’s important. Every year TechCrunch and VentureBeat join together to celebrate the best technology and startups of the previous year. But you, our dear readers, decide who wins. Vote below.

As last year’s host John Oliver noted so astutely, the Crunchies are “like the Nobel Prizes being given out, if Nobel Prizes were given out in an atmosphere of high-school bitchiness.”

In just two weeks we hope to carry on that tradition with a new host — Silicon Valley’s hilarious T.J. Miller — who will be there to help us highlight all the best startups, founders, apps, and technologies over the past year, and probably make fun of those who don’t end up winning.

Tickets are still available and start at $90. The evening is a blast. Dress up and come out and party with us on February 5th.

But first, spend five minutes and cast your vote.
