so the 2012 oscars are over, and you’re either
1) self-satisfied in knowing you actually saw all the best picture nominees this year
2) kind of feeling there’s no point in playing catch-up now, and, hey, there’s always next year.
however you stand, whether you’ve seen the films or not, you can decide to read them.
six of the nine best picture nominees were based on books.
this beats last year’s list, when four of the ten best picture nominees were based on books: the social network (the accidental billionaires), true grit, 127 hours (between a rock and a hard place, and winter’s bone. how to train your dragon got a nod for best animated film.
think we might be seeing any of these movies-based-on-books play a role on oscar night, 2013?
personally, i cannot wait for the hobbit. it’s been much, much, too long since the adaptations of lotr hit the big screen. and the hunger games, though i’m worried they’re going to mess up the adaptation (i think the harry potter movies fall far short of the books). what say you?
