At the 30th Annual Artios Awards in Los Angeles, Emmy Award winning casting director Ellen Lewis was presented with the Hoyt Bowers Award along with Academy Award nominee Richard Linklater ("Boyhood") receiving the Career Achievement Award.
Held Jan. 22, 2015, the awards were presented in Los Angeles, CA, and New York, NY, simultaneously. Patton Oswalt hosted in Los Angeles, and Michael Urie 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.
