The awards were previously held in November. The move places them one week after the 2015 Academy Awards.
The awards are given to CSA members for excellence in casting across theater, television and film. The bi-coastal event presents awards in 29 categories with three special honors: The Career Achievement Award, the New York Apple Award and the Hoyt Bowers Awards.
Recent winners include casting directors of "Silver Linings Playbook," "Argo," "The King's Speech," "The Social Network," "Girls," "Homeland," "Modern Family," "The Mindy Project," "House of Cards" and "The Book of Mormon."
