“Very brave producers have found ways to keep industry practitioners employed and engaged.”

The Casting Guild of Australia has announced the nominees in all categories for its annual CGA Awards

The only casting awards ceremony in the southern hemisphere that celebrates and recognises casting across all mediums including film, television, advertising and theatre and online content, the winners will be announced at the virtual ceremony via Facebook on Saturday 28 November.

Hosted by Bert and Amanda LaBonté, the Awards seek to acknowledge and support the critical role casting directors play in bringing together great casting opportunities both on a national and international stage.

CGA President David Newman said: “In uniquely trying times, very brave producers have found ways to keep industry practitioners employed and engaged. Casting Directors have hugely appreciated all those efforts and been there every step of the way to support that process.
