The 30th Annual Artios Awards, which honor casting across film, television, theatre and new media, will be hosted by Patton Oswalt and Michael Urie.

Held Jan. 22, 2015, the awards will be presented in Los Angeles, CA, and New York, NY, simultaneously. Oswalt will be in Los Angeles, and Urie will be in New York.

"The 30th Annual Artios Awards is a huge milestone for us and we couldn't be happier to have Patton in Los Angeles and Michael in New York doing the honors. We're lucky to have them both. They're successful in so many areas — film, television, theater; qualities shared by hosts and nominees alike," Richard Hicks, president of the Casting Society of America, said in a statement.

Oswalt is a three-time Grammy nominee. His TV credits include "The Goldbergs," "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and "The Heart, She Holler," among others. Urie's TV credits include "Ugly Betty, "Submissions Only" and "Partners." He recently appeared on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and is currently touring in Buyer and Cellar.

As previously reported, the CSA will present Richard Linklater with the Career Achievement Award, Rob Marshall with the New York Apple Award and Ellen Lewis with the Hoyt Bowers Award.
