After 123 hours and 10 minutes of continuous movie watching (yes, that means zero hours of sleep), the Netflix Movie Watching World Championship in NYC's Time Square has come to a close. Yesterday, Susan Sarandon was on hand to deliver the final movie Thelma and Louise (which was movie number 57) to the winners Suresh Joachim and Claudia Wavra. Joachim, a Sri Lanka native who now resides in Toronto, and Wavra of Petersberg, Germany achieved a new Guinness World Record for most consecutive hours spent watching movies. Aside from the record title, the pair also get to take home a lifetime Netflix subscription, the Netflix Popcord Bowl Trophy, and a $10,000 cash prize. Congrats to the winners!
