The Casting Society of America has announced the nominees for its 36th annual Artios Awards, recognizing achievements in casting for films in 2021. Prospective Oscar nominees like Belfast, Don't Look Up and The Power of the Dog rub shoulders here with indie fare such as The Novice, Shiva Baby and Swan Song as the CSA has separate categories for separate budget tiers - a nice feature for allowing great casting from all areas of filmmaking to be acknowledged. Winners will be announced on the 17th of March.
