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. Sadly, for the first time in as many years, daytime was shut out of recognition by the organization. It only has itself to blame.
The Casting Society of America (CSA) hosted the 30th Annual Artios Awards last night in ceremonies taking place simultaneously in New York and Los Angeles. "General Hospital's" Mark Teschner took home the casting award for Daytime Drama Series. He beat out "Days of our Lives" casting director Marnie Saitta, and associate Bob Lambert, and "The Young and the Restless" casting director Judy Blye Wilson, and associate Greg Salmon.
Held Monday, November 18 at the Beverly Hilton in LA and at the XL Nightclub, Cabaret & Lounge in NYC, "The Casting Society of America's 29th Annual Artios Awards" honored the best of the best in casting and "The Young and the Restless'" Judy Blye Wilson took home her twelfth Artios Award in the process.
