And since the authors hardly ever get a mention on Oscar night, the least you can do is buy their novel.
Last year I nearly went through the television when everyone who accepted an award for HUGO, never once uttered the name, Brian Selznik. I guess an increase in sales is acknowledgement enough.
And the nominees are...
Life of Pi
The Silver Linings Playbook
Personally, I'm rooting for Life of Pi, not only because Yann Martel is Canadian (hooray) but it is an amazing story with scenes that will stay with you long after you read the last page. I haven't seen the movie yet because I loved the book so much.
Do you have a favorite book you'd like to see made into a movie? Besides your own, that is ;)
