Casting Society of America to Honor Rob Marshall, Ellen Lewis

Rob Marshall and Ellen Lewis will be honored at this year’s Artios Awards, the Casting Society of America has announced.

Marshall, who received award recognition for his direction of films “Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha” and “Nine,” as well as his 1998 Broadway revival of “Cabaret,” will receive the New York Apple Award. It honors New Yorkers who have made significant contributions with casting directors.

Lewis will receive the Hoyt Bowers award, which recognizes unique spirit, ideals and creativity in casting. Lewis has casted movies such as “Goodfellas,” “Forrest Gump” and “The Wolf of Wall Street,” and is known for her work with Martin Scorsese.

“Marshall and Lewis have defined excellence in their respective fields, and each has played a vital role in the advancement of the casting industry,” said Richard Hicks, president of the Casting Society of America. “Throughout their careers, the honorees and nominees have been instrumental in creating and guiding some of the entertainment industry’s most memorable films, television shows and theater productions, and we’re thrilled to honor them at this year’s milestone Artios Awards.”

The CSA also announced this year’s nominees in categories for television, theater, short film and new media — the last of which introduces web series to the awards for the first time. The feature film nominees, which have been moved to a new calendar year eligibility period, will be announced at a later time. Voting for the available categories closes at 5 p.m. on Sept. 29.

The 30th annual Artios Awards will be held on Jan. 22 simultaneously in New York and Los Angeles.
