Netflix Launches the Flixies Awards

Netflix subscribers and non-subscribers can vote in seven unique categories such as 'Best Hangover Cure' and 'Best TV Marathon.'

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.
