"My husband’s not your husband"
Congratulations to Linda Lowy! She was honored with the Hoyt Bowers award at the Casting Society of America’s Artios Awards last night in Los Angeles for her years of work as a casting director for shows including Friday Night Lights, Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy, as well as numerous films and special projects.
The top picture above shows Linda with her husband Jeff Perry (our own Cyrus Beene), her daughter Leah and her stepdaughter Zoe (Jeff’s daughter with Laurie Metcalf).
Also in attendance last night were her Scandal co-workers Kerry Washington who presented Linda’s award, Dan Bucatinsky and Katie Lowes.
Congrats again Linda - you’ve done an amazing job casting some hugely popular shows over the years!
Kerry Washington oversaw the presentation the Hoyt Bowers Award to casting director Linda Lowy of Linda Lowy Casting. During a pre-introduction video reel, Shonda Rhimes spoke about how invaluable Lowy’s input was to casting Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, which feature two of the more diverse casts in television history. Grey’s’ stars Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson appeared together in one clip, with Oh saying, “Look at our faces: different,” adding that Lowy “changed the game.” In another, Peter Berg, with whom Lowy worked on the TV series Friday Night Lights and the new film Lone Survivor, said he could never have made either without her. And, in yet another, Julia Louis-Dreyfus said that she is “forever indebted” to Lowy for helping to cast her short film Picture Paris.
Lowy received a standing ovation when she stepped up to the mic. She acknowledged her aforementioned collaborators (receiving laughs when she said of Rhimes, “I honestly don’t know where I’d be without Shonda Rhimes; I’d probably be at home, and most likely not the home I currently live in”) and her coworkers. She also hailed the makers of Casting By, which she said, as someone who was mentored by someone who was mentored by Dougherty, was “a beautiful doc that sets the record straight.” She added that as a result of it, “We are no longer unsung, uncelebrated and unheralded — in fact, we can cross the word ‘un’ out!” She also called on the next generation of casting directors to go to the theater, learn about film history and read, because, she said, “I’m seeing these things fade.”
