Here Are The Winners of 2020 Artios Awards!


Last night, the Casting Society of America handed out the Artios Awards, honoring the best of 2020.  There is no Academy Award for Best Casting, though I definitely think there should be.  (There should also be an award to honor stunt crews as well.)  For that reason, let’s extend a healthy congratulations to last night’s winners!  Casting directors and associates have a very important job that, quite frankly, doesn’t get as much recognition as it deserves.
