Adapting books for film continues to grow in popularity, as evidenced by the dozens of movies released last year based on beloved texts. And it appears that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was just as captivated as moviegoers by these adaptations. Five of the eight films nominated for Best Picture are based on books, and film adaptations garnered nominations in 18 of the 24 award categories.
In anticipation of the 88th Academy Awards ceremony on February 28th, we’ve assembled a gallery of every 2016 Oscar-nominated film based on a book. Enjoy browsing the movies, and check out this gallery to view more book-to-film adaptations.
