Filmbook: The race to Best Picture

Six of the nine nominees for this year's Best Picture at the Academy Awards are book adaptations. I don't know if that's a record, but it has to be up there, and however else I may feel about the Oscars this year (heavy sigh) I'm glad that books are still an enduring source for movie magic.

This graphic masterpiece (available for purchase for your private collection!) doesn't represent the books in the order of likeliest win, although I did put my personal favorite out in front. Come on, Alexander Payne!
