Just two days after the 84th Academy Awards came to its conclusion in Los Angeles, Netflix has announced a brand new awards initiative of its own – the Flixies. As you’d expect, the Flixies will honour all the top movies and TV shows on the streaming service, with both Netflix members and non-members able to cast their votes. Voting is open now, and will run all the way through to Sunday March 10 (5pm PST), with categories including Best Tantrum Tamer (aimed at parents of troublesome young ‘uns), Best Hangover Cure, Best Bromance and Best Marathon TV Show. So yeah, not your typical entertainment categories you’ll no doubt agree. Netflix says that the awards are designed to celebrate “the new viewing habits of today’s entertainment watchers,” in other words those who like to sit at home and stream hours of TV shows and movies.
