Getting Ready for the Academy Awards: Adapted Screen Play Nominees and RA Implications

Sunday night is the Academy Awards.  Here are the movies which are up for Best Adapted Screenplay with a link to the works which they were adapted from [in some cases, the titles are different].

American Sniper 
The Imitation Game 
Inherent Vice
The Theory of Everything
Whiplash [which is based on a previously produced short film]

Now these books are probably checked out at your library, but thats fine because here is the link to a list of every film which has ever been nominated for best adapted screenplay with the title and author of the work which it was adapted from.

Use the interest in this year’s nominees to direct people to the hundreds of great books which have been turned into Oscar nominated films in years past.

You are bound to have at least a few of these on your shelves right now.

Yes, patrons think that they want the 2015 nominees, but they will actually be just as happy with any title that was nominated ever.

Trust me, I do this ever year and I have had plenty of satisfied patrons. People simply want a book that is pre-approved in someway.  Any years nominee fits this bill.
