Los Angeles, CA September XX, 2016 – The Casting Society of America (CSA) prepares to honor the industry’s leading casting professionals and partners at its 32nd Annual Artios Awards with the announcement of its 2017 nominees for Outstanding Achievement in Casting in the television, theatre, short form/web series and short film categories.

“Perfect casting can make all the difference,” said Richard Hicks, CSA President. “Finding exactly the right actor or actress to bring the story to its fullest life is what CSA members do every day. The history of film, television and theatre is told in such moments, when it all comes together to create something special. The Artios Awards are our opportunity to recognize outstanding achievement in all of these areas. Congratulations nominees!”
