Casting Society of America announces Artios Awards film nominees: ‘La La Land,’ ‘Arrival,’ ‘Hidden Figures,’ ‘Moonlight’ ..

The casting branch of the academy is only three 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 32 years (“Artios” is from the ancient Greek meaning “perfectly fitted.”). Nominees for feature films were announced on Tuesday (Jan. 3). Voting commences immediately, and ends this Sunday (Jan. 8). Winners will then be presented at ceremonies in New York and Los Angeles on Thursday, Jan. 19.

In addition to the six film categories listed below, the Atrios Awards will also honor Annette Bening with the Lynn Stalmaster Award for Career Achievement. The Public Theater will receive the Marion Dougherty New York Apple Award. And casting director Nina Gold will be bestowed with the Hoyt Bowers Award.

Last year big budget winners were the comedy “The Big Short” and the drama “Straight Outta Compton” while “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” and “Room” took the equivalent prizes in the independent division.
