At the Casting Society of America's annual awards, special honors were given to Richard Linklater, Rob Marshall and casting director Ellen Lewis.

The casting directors responsible for Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Wolf of Wall Street, 12 Years a Slave, Dallas Buyers Club and Dear White People were among the winners at the Casting Society of America’s 30th annual Artios Awards, which were handed out at simultaneous ceremonies tonight at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles and 42West in New York City.

Because the annual awards show made the move this year from its usual November date to a new date in January, the eligibility period for film projects was expanded for this year only to include films released theatrically from July 1, 2013, through Dec. 31, 2014.

At the Los Angeles ceremony, hosted by Patton Oswalt, Jonah Hill presented casting director Ellen Lewis with the Hoyt Bowers Award, given to an individual who has elevated the casting profession. Lewis also won the award for casting a big-budget feature film comedy for her work on The Wolf of Wall Street.

Also in Los Angeles, Boyhood’s Patricia Arquette presented Oscar nominee Richard Linklater with the Career Achievement Award. Boyhood casting director Beth Sepko won the award for casting a low-budget feature film drama. 

In New York, where Michael Urie served as host, Into the Woods castmembers Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski and Tracey Ullman performed a surprise musical number before presenting their director Rob Marshall with the New York City Apple Award, recognizing individuals who have made special contributions to the New York entertainment industry through their collaboration with casting directors.
