Let me just say: I love an awards show. I love the suspense, the silly red-carpet interviews, the dresses, everything. This year, though, I barely managed to make it to the movie theater. So while I was glued to my couch watching the Academy Awards this past weekend, I wasn’t familiar with many of the films being recognized. Time to catch up with help from the Free Library!
Our libraries are home to a robust collection of DVDs, including Academy Award nominees and winners from this year and past ceremonies. While not all Oscar-nominated films have made it to DVD quite yet, you can get started with Best Picture winner Argo, Best Documentary winner Searching for Sugar Man, or Best Animated Feature Film winner Brave.
And don’t forget that many of those Best Adapted Screenplay nominees were first brought to life on the pages of books. So grab a volume that inspired an Oscar nominee, including Team of Rivals (Lincoln), Life of Pi, or Silver Linings Playbook, set right here in the Philadelphia region.
What Oscar-nominated films (or books!) will you take home from the Free Library?
