Danny Boyle to Receive Casting Society’s Career Achievement Award

The Casting Society of America will honor director Danny Boyle, writer-producers Robert King and Michelle King and casting director Bernard Telsey at its annual bi-coastal Artios Awards ceremonies.

The event will bestow Boyle with the Artios Career Achievement Award. It is in recognition of his contributions to film and television, and for his longstanding creative collaborations with casting directors.

The Kings, who are known for creating the CBS drama “The Good Wife” and the upcoming series “BrainDead,” will receive the New York Apple Award. It recognizes individuals who have made special contributions to the New York entertainment industry through their collaboration with casting directors.

After more than 30 years of casting some of Broadway, film and TV’s most memorable roles, Telsey will accept the Hoyt Bowers Award. The prize, named for the famed casting director, honors esteemed casting professionals who have elevated the casting profession.

“We’re thrilled to honor Danny Boyle, Michelle and Robert King, and Bernard Telsey at the 2016 Artios Awards. What’s most impressive with this year’s list of honorees is the sheer scope of their contributions to the entertainment industry. Across film, television and theater, they’ve shown us that a career full of quality work is possible, with their deep understanding and commitment to the craft of casting,” said Richard Hicks, president of the Casting Society of America.

The 31st Annual Artios Awards will take place on Jan. 21, presented simultaneously at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills and the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City. The ceremony will also honor casting directors for their work in feature films, television, theater, web series and short film. The nominees for the latter categories have already been announced. Submissions for the feature film categories are open through Dec. 11.
