While "The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," taking place on Sunday, May 1, is the grand daddy of awards shows honoring daytime television, it's actually the awards show that only honors those in front of the camera.

The Casting Society of America
Last week, the Casting Society of America (CSA) presented "The 31st Annual Artios Awards," which honors casting directors for their hard work and dedication to casting television shows and films across the country during calendar year 2015.
