Best Movie, Best Book?. . .

The Golden Globe nominations were announced today and what is interesting about the Best Movie category is that all five films are based on literature (as opposed to an original screenplay).
You can read the full list of nominiations here. (The nominees for Best Actress are particularly terrific - go Kate Winslet!). Here are the contenders for Best Movie (and links to the books they were based on)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button based on the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Frost/Nixon based on the play by Peter Morgan
The Reader based on the novel by Bernhard Schlink
Revolutionary Road based on the novel by Richard Yates
Slumdog Millionaire based on the novel Q & A by Vikas Swarup (you'll see the book also under the title Slumdog Millionaire).
