Here’s how to take part in the first-ever Twitch Chat’s Choice Awards

Twitch is throwing an “all-new award show to celebrate a fantastic summer of gaming”. Introducing the Chat’s Choice Awards, an interactive awards show where creators and players decide the winners.

Chat’s Choice Awards

Time and place

The first Chat’s Choice Awards takes place on Thursday, 3 September 2020 at 17:00 Pacific Time (PT). If you’re joining from South Africa, you’ll need to set an alarm from 2:00 (SAST) on Friday, 4 September.

Simply tune in to your favourite creator’s channel and join their streaming family in voting and deciding which nominee deserves top honours across the 13 categories. Alternatively, host your own version of the show.

“If your community is super into ‘Animal Crossing’, while everyone else seems way more into battle royales, give ‘Animal Crossing’ an award Sure, we have plenty of opinions, but yours are the ones that matter the most”.


If you’re interested in hosting your own Chat’s Choice Awards stream, keep reading, we’ll explain how it works. We’ll also include all the award categories and nominations below.

It’s no secret that I’ll be voting for Ghost of Tsushima as the Best Quarantine Game, for Norio the Warrior Monk as Best Character (portrayed by Earl T Kim), and Petting Foxes as the Cutest Moment.
