‘When They See Us,’ ‘Succession,’ ‘Pen15’ Among 35th Artios Award Nominees

New series including “When They See Us,” “Succession” and “Pen15” are among the 35th Artios Award nominees, the Casting Society of America (CSA) announced Tuesday.

“It has been an exceptional year for the art of casting and this slate of incredible nominees is a testament to how the quality of our work is positively reflected in this most impressive list of projects,” said Russell Boast, president, CSA. “As we approach our 35th Artios Awards we celebrate the great achievements our members have made, past and present, and look towards making even more of an impact throughout our industry.”

The Artios Awards celebrate the contribution of casting directors in film, television and theater. The milestone 35th ceremony will take place Thursday, Jan. 30, 2020 in three cities: Los Angeles, New York and London. Comedian, actor and writer Ron Funches will host the Los Angeles event.

When They See Us” helped Netflix earn the most nominations at this year’s awards, with 19 across categories that include television pilot and first season for comedy and drama, as well as comedy, drama and limited series overall. Meanwhile, “Succession” helped HBO earn the second-most nominations at eight, while “Pen15” pushed Hulu to the third-most with four. Disney Channel and FX each have three noms this year, while Amazon Prime Video, A&E Network, Fox, NBC, Facebook Watch, Nickelodeon and Showtime each earned two noms.

It is also worth nothing Bernie Telsey has seven noms this year across television and theater; Karyn Casl, Jim Carnahan and Tara Rubin have five noms each, including being up against themselves — Casl in the New York theater drama category, Carnahan in the New York Broadway comedy or drama revival category, and Rubin in the theater tours category; and Sharon Bialy, Adam Caldwell and Sherry Thomas have four noms each.
