As with the recent Golden Globes and National Board of Review awards, a casual perusal of the nominees of the 84th Academy Awards will reveal that the a majority of the year’s most highly regarded films were based on novels.
For the purposes of this blog, the Oscar that I am most interested in is the Academy Award for Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay) – which is awarded each year to the writer of a screenplay that has been adapted from another source.
And the nominees are: The Descendents, Hugo, The Ides of March, Moneyball and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
Hollywood's biggest night is scheduled for February 26. What film are you backing for the win?
