The Casting Society of America has made its talent choices for its bicoastal Artios Awards ceremonies next month. Patton Oswalt will host the Los Angeles festivities at the Beverly Hilton, and Michael Urie will host the New York City event. The 30th annual Artios prizes, which honor the best in casting across film, television, theater and new media, will be doled out January 22.
The dual ceremonies will mark the first time the Artios Awards are handed out in January, after moving from their longtime late-November slot into awards season’s primetime. The shift expanded this year’s eligibility window to films released between June 1, 2013, and December 31, 2014. Ballots for feature film nominations go out Friday; voting on the other fields already is complete. Emmy winners Rob Marshall and Ellen Lewis are set to receive the New York Apple Award and the Hoyt Bowers Award, respectively.
Argo and Homeland were among the big winners at last year’s Artios Awards.
