While Netflix already has a stranglehold on the online streaming business, the company is breaking into the "awards" business in their own unique way. Netflix launched a brand new site for their very own awards dubbed The Flixies. Take a look at this introductory video, then read on for more information.
Voting will be open until March 10 for both subscribers and non-subscribers alike. Unlike typical awards shows, these categories truly cater to everyone, not just an "academy" of voters. Take a look at the categories below, and visit TheFlixies.com to cast your vote.
BEST GUILTY PLEASURE
Which movie or TV show do you publicly condemn but secretly adore? Don't be ashamed, we're all complicit and it's time to come clean...
BEST COMMUTE "SHRTNR"
You have seven more stops to go and the only open seat smells like last week's sushi. But that's ok because you're lost in the iPhone app.
BEST MARATHON TV SHOW
Play Next Episode? Yes please! Is that the sun coming up? Fine. Skip breakfast, use a baby wipe and you'll still make it to work on time.
BEST HANGOVER CURE
Bacon. Gatorade. Aspirin. Keep trying, you're still going to pay for last night. Or... you distract yourself from the pain.
Football season might be over, but it's TV Night in the man cave, bro. Now have a seat and crack open a few browskis.
BEST PMS DRAMA
Let's face it, "that time of the month" is always a little dramatic. Why not let NETFLIX do the door slamming this time?
BEST TANTRUM TAMER
Unfortunately kids don't come with a mute button. But don't worry, 22 minutes of silence is just a tap away.
