Hollywood Critics Association Movie Film + TV Covid-19 Triviathon to Stream Live This Saturday

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,, 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. They will post the direct links to the Triviathon on the HCA Twitter page @hcacritics and Facebook page on the day of the event. 

Everyone is welcome 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, they 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. They 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. 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 they don’t want anyone looking up clues or answers on the internet, they do encourage everyone to use the internet if you don’t know how to spell an answer. The better the spelling, the quicker they 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. They are doing this event for free as a way to raise funds to help support The Actors Fund, ASPCA,, 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. They are doing this because they love having a good time. Trivia is all about coming together with friends and having fun. They want everyone who is playing to enjoy themselves.
