Casting Society Association (CSA) Artios Award winners: ‘BlacKkKlansman,’ ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ ‘Green Book’ and more
The winners of the 34th Artios Awards, given by the Casting Society of America (CSA), were handed out last night in simultaneous ceremonies at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles and Stage 48 in New York City on January 31st. The hosts were the husband and wife team of actress June Diane Raphael (Burning Love) and Paul Scheer (Veep).
Best Picture Oscar nominees BlacKkKlansman, Green Book and Vice won awards in their respective categories (although what defines ‘big budget’ seems questionable) with Black Panther earning the Zeitgeist Award.
Special awards were given to Laura Dern, who received the Lynn Stalmaster award at the Los Angeles ceremony. Stalmaster was recently given an Honorary Oscar for his decades-long work in Hollywood casting and from the New York ceremony, Tina Fey and Jeff Raymond received the Marion Dougherty New York Apple Award.
Glee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy and CSI co-creator Carol Mendelsohn presented the Hoyt Bowers Award to Robert J. Ulrich, Eric Dawson and Carol Kritzer of Ulrich/Dawson/Kritzer Casting. The Hoyt Bowers Award, given for excellence in casting, honors the recipients’ body of work and their outstanding contribution to the casting profession.
