Casting Society of America announces 2019 Artios Awards film nominees: ‘A Star is Born,’ ‘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 33 years (“Artios” is from the ancient Greek meaning “perfectly fitted.”). Nominees for feature films were announced on Thursday and many of the leading Oscar contenders reaped bids. Winners will be revealed at joint ceremonies in New York and Los Angeles on Thursday, Jan. 31.

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