The 2011 Artios Awards, which recognize achievements in casting for theatre, film and television, were held Sept. 26 in New York and Los Angeles. Sister Act producer and original film star Whoopi Goldberg, "Law & Order" creator Dick Wolf and veteran casting director Meg Liberman were among those honored.
The awards were presented in simultaneous Sept. 26 ceremonies in New York (at District 36) and Los Angeles (The Beverly Hilton Hotel).
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
