Netflix has launched the first ever Flixies Awards designed to celebrate the new viewing habits of todays entertainment watchers. The Flixies are not your average awards show, but rather an online experience that enables fans in the United States, and in the 40 countries around the world where Netflix is offered, to vote for their favorite TV shows and movies on the service in categories they can really relate to. Netflix has grouped the nominated popular streaming titles into humorous award categories that reflect real-life viewing habits e.g. Best Tantrum Tamer (for those with kids), Best Hangover Cure (for those on the mend), or Best Marathon TV Show (for those who tell themselves Ok, just one more before bed).
Voting is open starting today through Sunday, March 10th, and non-Netflix members can also make their voices heard. The top three winners in each Flixies category will be revealed on Monday, March 11th. To further celebrate trends in new viewing habits, visitors will also be able to write-in new viewing categories based on how they personally watch titles on Netflix for inclusion in future Flixies.
