Reading the Oscars

Reading the OscarsLike last year, five of the nine films nominated for Best Picture at the 2013 Academy Awards are based on novels. There’s quite a bit of variety in the category ranging from classic novel adaptions to historical biographies to contemporary fiction. With more than one of the books coming in at over 900 pages — it will definitely be a challenge to finish all the books by February 24th. 😉

In other categories, book-to-film adaptations maintained their popularity with Anna Karenina and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey each receiving multiple nominations.
