Oscar-Winning Movies that Were Books First

Did you know that from 1930 to 2008, 41 of the Best Picture winners at the Oscars were books too! I don’t know about you but I love to read books that turn in movies.  Three out of the ten nominated this year are books!  I found a list that lists all of them from 1930 to 2006. (If you want to see that list click here.) A few of my favorites are “A Beautiful Mind“, “Forrest Gump”, and “Slumdog Millionaire.”   (If you want to check those books out of the library click the links.)  And hey, maybe you’ll find out that one of your favorite movies is a book!
