The nominations for the 85th Annual Academy Awards were released this morning and (to no one’s surprise) an astounding 11 book adaptations were nominated for an Oscar this year. Particularly impressive in the Best Picture division, 5 out of 9 nominees were book adaptations including “Argo,” “Les Miserables,” “The Silver Linings Playbook,” “Life of Pi,” and “Lincoln” which were also all nominated in a variety of other categories. Predictably the biggest winners out of this bunch will be “Lincoln” and “The Silver Linings Playbook” which is the only mook of the bunch to receive The Big Five (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay.)
The Academy Awards will debut live on ABC Sunday, February 24th at 7PM EST hosted by Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone. You can read the full list of nominees here. Who do you predict will be the big winners?
