Las Culturistas’ Culture Awards: Nominations + Winners

Las Culturistas’ Culture Awards: Nominations + Winners

Las Culturistas, a culture podcast hosted by comedians Bowen Yang and Matt Rogers, returned to Lincoln Center for their annual Las Culturistas Culture Awards in New York City. Last year’s show featured celebrity guests (hey, Taylor Swift made a virtual appearance last year), sing-alongs, commitments to the bit, and references to Bravo shows. Saturday night’s show promised to highlight every high and low point in pop culture in the past year, scandoval included. With over one hundred categories and “a glittering assemblage of young comedians and celebrity award presenters,” there probably needs to be an awards show for this awards show. The show took place on June 17, with awardsdate sharing the culture via Instagram from the event.

Meanwhile, here’s the list of every single nomination with select winners — formal update coming soon. Bon appétit!
