Casting Society of America Moves Artios Awards to January

Casting Society of America Moves Artios

The 30th annual Artios Awards will take place Jan. 22, 2015, in New York and Los Angeles, the Casting Society of America announced Sunday.

The awards were previously held in November. The move places them one week after the 2015 Academy Awards.

“The recognition of the craft and art of casting has taken a major step forward with the recent establishment of the Casting Directors Branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences,” said Richard Hicks, president of the Casting Society of America, in a statement. “We moved the 30th Annual Artios Awards later in the season to better align Casting with film’s other major guilds and crafts.”

The awards are given to CSA members for excellence in casting across theater, television and film. The bi-coastal event presents awards in 29 categories with three special honors: The Career Achievement Award, the New York Apple Award and the Hoyt Bowers Awards.

Recent winners include casting directors of “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Argo,” “The King’s Speech,” “The Social Network,” “Girls,” “Homeland,” “Modern Family,” “The Mindy Project,” “House of Cards” and “The Book of Mormon.”
