The 28th Annual Artios Awards, hosted by the Casting Society of America, recognized "The Help," "Crazy, Stupid, Love," "Homeland" and "Girls" for outstanding achievement in casting on Monday night.

The ceremony, which is traditionally held in both New York and Los Angeles, was held only at the Beverly Hills Hilton, due to the superstorm that swept through the East Coast.

Casting directors for "The Help," "My Week with Marilyn," and "The Artist" won for big-budget drama, independent drama and independent comedy respectively, reports Variety.

On the TV side, casting directors for "Homeland," "Good Wife," Girls" and "Game Change" all took home awards.

"Argo" director and star Ben Affleck was honored at the event receiving the career achievement award.
