The casting directors of “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” “Knives Out,” “Jojo Rabbit” and “Marriage Story” were among the winners at the 35th annual Artios Awards, held Thursday at ceremonies in Los Angeles, New York and London.
Other winners in the eight feature-film categories were the casting directors on “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” “Skin in the Game,” “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” “The Lion King” and “Toy Story 4,” the last two of which tied in the animation category.
Television winners included the casting directors for the first seasons of “Russian Doll” and “Pose,” as well as those on the miniseries “When They See Us,” the reality program “Queer Eye” and the continuing series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Game of Thrones.”
Awards were also given out in short film and theater categories.
In the 34 previous years of the Artios Awards, the film that would win the Academy Award for Best Picture was also honored for its casting 14 times. Nine of those times have come in the last 14 years, including “Green Book” last year.
The Artios Awards were first handed out in 1985 and are chosen by members of the Casting Society of America, an organization founded in 1982.
Ron Funches hosted the L.A. ceremony, Michelle Buteau the New York show and Jason Isaacs the London event.
Special awards were given to actress and advocate Geena Davis (the Lynn Stalmaster Award for Career Achievement), Deborah Aquila (the Hoyt Bowers Award), Audra McDonald (the Marion Dougherty New York Apple Award), Andrew Femenella (the Rosalie Joseph Humanitarian Award), Tim Bevan and Eric Fellne (the Artios Award for Creative Collaboration), Andy Pryor (the Excellence in Casting Award) and Pippa Markham, Kate Buckley and Gillian Hawser.
