Netflix Bows ‘Flixies’ Awards27 Feb, 2013 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Interactive awards open to non-subscribers
The Oscars may be in the books, but that’s not stopping Netflix from putting its own spin on entertainment backslapping and snarking with the inaugural launch of the Flixies Awards.
Through March 10, Netflix subscribers and visitors can vote online their favorites moves and TV shows among the following categories: Best Guilty Pleasure, Best Commute Shortner, Best Marathon TV Show, Best Hangover Cure, Best Bromance, Best PMS Drama and Best Tantrum Tamer.
It goes without saying the awards are self-promotional (as if Netflix needs the help) considering one of the Best Marathon TV show nominees is Netflix's first original series, "House of Cards," which has become something of poster child for episodic binge viewing in 2013.
Visit The Flixies for lists of nominees in each category.
