Frankenheimer, Johnson, Liff to garner nods Nov. 14

Director John Frankenheimer and Broadway casting directors Geoffrey Johnson and Vincent Liff will be honored at the Casting Society of America’s 14th annual Artios awards show on Nov. 14.

Frankenheimer, who helmed the miniseries “George Wallace” and “Andersonville,” as well as features including “The Manchurian Candidate,” “French Connection II” and “Birdman of Alcatraz,” will receive the CSA’s lifetime achievement award in recognition of his 45-year career.

Johnson and Liff, whose long partnership has pulled in previous CSA awards for shows such as “Guys and Dolls,” “Miss Saigon” and “Stand Up Tragedy,” will receive the Hoyt Bowers Award for their contribution to the profession of casting.

The CSA, headed by Beth Hymson-Ayer, was founded in 1982 to advance standards of professionalism among casting directors. Artios is Greek for “perfectly fitted.”

Tickets for the event at the Century Plaza Hotel are available by calling (213) 463-1925.
