The Hollywood Critics Association’s Movie and TV Triviathon will stream live on YouTube and Twitch this Saturday, May 16, 2020, at 5pm PT/8pm ET.


The Hollywood Critics Association’s Movie and TV Triviathon will stream live on YouTube and Twitch this Saturday, May 16, 2020, at 5pm PT/8pm ET. This free virtual game night is being held as a way to give back to seven different charities who have been doing their part to help those impacted by COVID-19.
The Hollywood Critics Association Triviathon will feature multiple rounds of movie and television trivia questions that have been created by various members of the Hollywood Critics Association, as well as some of our celebrity guests. Each round will highlight a different charity organization that has been doing its part to help out those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. All of the funds raised by this event will be donated to The Actors Fund, ASPCA, Dine11.org, Feeding America, MPTF, UNICEF, and United Way Worldwide.
How to play: 
While this Triviathon is being held to help those in need, the game itself is free to join and play. There will be grand prize winners as well as multiple raffles. 
Beginning at 4:30 p.m. PST/7:30 p.m. EST on Saturday, May 16, 2020, you can go to the Hollywood Critics Association YouTube channel or the Hollywood Critics Twitch Page to view the live stream of the Triviathon. The game will begin promptly at 5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET. We will post the direct links to the Triviathon on the HCA Twitter page @hcacritics and Facebook page on the day of the event. 
We welcome everyone to join in the fun and play along. You can play by yourself or create a team. If you are playing on a team, please designate one person from your team to fill out the answer sheet for each and every round. We cannot have multiple sheets submitted for the same team.

At the beginning of the event, we will post a google doc link that will have individual links to all of the different rounds of the game. At the beginning of each round, the answer sheet for that sheet will become editable. You can input your answers during that time and be sure to hit submit when done. At the end end of reach round, the answer sheet for that round will be disabled and responses can no longer be submitted. Once that sheet has been turned off, one of the hosts will reveal the answers for that round and the next answer sheet will open.
At the end of the event, the final scores will be added up and the three teams/winners with the highest scores will be announced later that evening or the following day on the official Hollywood Critics Association Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. We will contact the winners directly to get the necessary information to ensure that the winners receive their prizes. 
Six Important Rules: 
  1. No cheating. This means no looking up answers or clues on the internet. I know it’s tempting, but it is not in the true spirit of what makes trivia fun. 
  2. If you are using a team name, please make sure that the team name is spelled the same way for every round. If it is spelled incorrectly, we will count it as a separate entry. 
  3. Spelling. While we don’t want anyone looking up clues or answers on the internet, we do encourage everyone to use the internet if you don’t know how to spell an answer. The better the spelling, the quicker we will have the scores added up. 
  4. Please do not guess or post answers to the questions in the chat during the rounds. If you know the answer to a question, that’s awesome, but don’t give another team or player the answer because it will only hurt your odds of winning a prize at the end of the game. Please keep the answer to yourself or team members until all answer sheets are submitted and the round is officially closed. 
  5. We are doing this event for free as a way to raise funds to help support The Actors Fund, ASPCA, Dine11.org, Feeding America, MPTF, UNICEF, and United Way Worldwide. While it is not required to donate, anything that you can give is much appreciated. 
  6. Have fun. We are doing this because we love having a good time. Trivia is all about coming together with friends and having fun. We want everyone who is playing to enjoy themselves.
We kindly ask that if you are planning to participate in this event to post on social media about the event, please tag us and use one or both of the following hashtags: #HCACritics #HCATriviathon

We would love to see people playing the game with us and will do our best to retweet and share any photos or videos that are posted on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

We truly hope that this Triviathon offers some much-needed enjoyment and entertainment while also helping to support those who have been on the front lines and helping to combat COVID-19.
