Oscar nominees that are based on books

The 2012 Oscar Nominees list was recently announced, and many of the nominated movies were actually books first! The list of nominees (for major categories) is below. Any title in bold is one that is based on a book that the Vise Library has a copy of. If you want to check out any of the titles we have, come see us! Titles that are italicized are based on books, but the library does not own them. If you want to borrow those titles from another library, fill out an Interlibrary Loan request form. 

Best Picture: 

  • "War Horse" (Ashli says: "Great story about how war affects everyone in different ways.") 
  • "The Artist"
  • "Moneyball" (Ashli says: "Even if you don't like baseball you'll enjoy this story about going against the grain!")
  • "The Descendants" (None of us have read this one, but one review calls it "an audaciously comic debut novel")
  • "The Tree of Life"
  • "Midnight in Paris"
  • "The Help"  (Amber says: "This book is great! Highly recommended")
  • " Hugo"  (Amber says: "This 2008 Caldecott Award winner may look daunting at 533 pages but is beautifully illustrated")
