Casting Society of America: 2019 Artios Awards winners include ‘BlacKkKlansman,’ ‘Green Book,’ ‘Vice’


The casting branch of the academy is only five years old and doesn’t have an Oscar category of its own. However, the Casting Society of America has been handing out the Artios Awards for 34 years (“Artios” is from the ancient Greek meaning “perfectly fitted.”). This year’s awards took place on Thursday (Jan. 31) on both coasts. At the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, winners included three of the Oscar frontrunners for Best Picture: “BlacKkKlansman,” “Green Book” and “Vice.” (see full list of winners below).

In addition to the seven film categories listed below, the Atrios Awards honored Laura Dern with the Lynn Stalmaster Award for Career Achievement while Tina Fey and Jeff Raymond received the Marion Dougherty New York Apple Award and casting directors Robert J. Ulrich, Eric Dawson and Carol Kritzer were feted with the Hoyt Bowers Award.

Last year’s big budget winners were the war movie “Dunkirk and the musical “The Greatest Showman” while”Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and “Lady Bird” took the equivalent prizes in the independent division. “Beach Rats” won the low budget award while “Coco” claimed the animation award.
