The Bookish Academy Awards Tag

I was tagged by Michaela @ Journey Into Books. Thanks for the Tag!  Go check out her blog, its awesome!

This is actually the second time I have done this award.  The first was a year ago tomorrow.  I thought it would be fun to answer all the prompts and then compare my new answers to my answers from last time! Also, this time around, I tried to pick books I have read in the last year.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS AND ACTOR – BEST FEMALE AND MALE SIDEKICKS

Ron and Hermione

I have re-read most of the Harry Potter books in the last year and they are definitely the best sidekicks OF ALL TIME!

Previous Choice: Aaron, Darvish, and Chandra from The Fire’s Stone

fire-stone

BEST ON-SCREEN KISS – BEST COUPLE/ROMANCE

Ethan and Mo from The Princess and the Fangirl

39725622

This choice is kind of a cop out because it is a very Pride and Prejudice esque romance and I loved it!

Previous Choice: No Previous Choice / Wasn’t a Question Last Time

BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY (BEST BOOK-TO-MOVIE ADAPTATION)

The Umbrella Academy

MV5BNTFhOTk1NTgtYWM1ZS00NWI1LTgzYzAtYmE5MjZiMDE0NzlhXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTkxNjUyNQ@@._V1_.jpg

I know this isn’t a movie, but I am picking it anyway.  I thought the graphic novel was pretty awful, and the tv show was brilliant.  The are other adaptations that I like better, but I also loved their books, so considering how much I disliked the book compared to how much I loved the show, this might be one of the best adaptations I have seen.

Previous Choice: The Princess Bride
