Film and Television Adaptations: Academy Award Winners & Nominees

Books made into Film

Page Information

Listed below on the right are films that were nominated for or won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay (this is the current name of the award; the title of the award changed over the years and the exact title is noted beneath the listing). On the left are the corresponding texts from which the films were adapted. The films and texts are organized by the year in which the original text was published. 

If there are multiple copies or editions of a work in the ARC Library, the listing for work the will link to a search in the Library catalog. From there, you can filter by American River College to see items at the ARC Library or by "Available Online" to see eBooks and videos that you can access using your Los Rios login (w# + password).
