On Thursday, the awards ceremony was handed over to the Casting Society (CSA), which held its 38th annual Artios Awards in recognition of excellence in feature film, television and theater casting.
Taking place in Los Angeles, New York and London, the Casting Society’s first in-person celebration in three years has added awards for blockbuster film and TV projects like “Everything Everywhere All at Once” and “Succession” as well as independent fare like “ Marcel with the Conch Shoes’ and ‘Emily the Criminal’.
Oscar nominees “The Fabelmans” and “The Banshees of Inisherin” both received Artios awards in the Big Budget – Drama and Studio or Independent – Drama categories, just as the filmmakers behind them prepare to enter at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Emmys are far away, and award-winning shows like “Abbott Elementary” and “Yellowjackets” got even more love for their debut seasons, this time from Casting Society.
The Artios Awards also presented some special honors, including the Lynn Stalmaster Award for Career EGOT winner Rita Moreno, the Hoyt Bowers Award for Excellence in Casting and Outstanding Contribution to the Casting Industry to Leslee Feldman, Amblin Partners celebrated casting director. the Rosalie Joseph Humanitarian Award to award-winning casting director Jessica Sherman, and a posthumous honor to Simone Bär, recipient of the 2023 European Kapelier-Shaw Award for Excellence in Casting.
“From New York to London to Los Angeles, it was a fantastic evening celebrating our peers and recognizing their hard work and craftsmanship in film, television and theater,” said CSA President Destiny Lilly. “We continue to see changes and advancements in the industry to recognize our craft, and tonight’s celebration reinforces our commitment and drive to advance our mission. And we wouldn’t be able to do it without actors. They are our craft.”
