As the stars begin to primp and prep for the Academy’s big night, here at Literary Traveler we are still sipping coffee in our pajamas as we announce the year’s big winners. While the results of the Oscars may be kept under wraps for a couple more hours, we won’t keep you waiting any longer. The fix is in and while some of these adaptations may not be receiving accolades from the Academy, we think they deserve acknowledgment for their spot on representation of some of our literary favorites.

Best Character Portrayal by an Actor: Bradley Cooper as Pat Solitano Jr. (Silver Linings Playbook)
The Fauxscar for “Best ‘Almost as Good as the Book’ Film” also goes to Life of Pi.
