I was tagged by Nandini @UnputdownableBooks and later also by Tanvi @LaFemmeLivresque to do the Bookish Academy Awards tag. I know Oscar season ended a long time ago, but hey, don’t blame, I have a lot of tags to get through! This tag was so hard to do because so many options but so few awards to give.
I wonder how anyone can choose which movies to give Oscars to! Anyway, I did this tag somehow, so here we go…
1. Best Actor (Best Male Protagonist)
Percy Jackson. He’s so funny and well, I love the way he narrates. It makes everything so interesting and keeps you wanting to read. It makes the book feel light-hearted and easy to get through!
2. Best Actress (Best Female Protagonist)
Cather from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. She is someone I related to in a way I haven’t really related to any other protagonist ever and well, I empathised with her.
3. Best Cinematography (Best Plot Twist)
The Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Celaena to Aelin, anyone? And the ‘assassin’ into ‘fire-breathing Bitch Queen’? Need I say anything more.
4. Best Costume Design (Best Book Cover)
But well, here’s a collage of some of my favourite covers!
5. Best Supporting Actress and Actor (Best Female and Male Sidekicks)
Female- Iko from The Lunar Chronicles. My, my, she is lovely and surely the one that would steal the show! She’s hilarious and a fun character to be around. She’s lovely and makes the entire series better!
Male– Simon Lewis from The Mortal Instruments. He’s such a good friend and an overall amazing character! I love him.
6. Best On-Screen Kiss (Best Couple/Romance)
Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Those two are so cute and well, I love them! They fit so well and well, they are so romantic and I just want someone like Peter for me.
7. Best Original Screenplay (Most Unique Plot/World)
um, Throne of Glass. That is pretty much something unique. Sure, there are a lot of books with Fae, but none of them are like ToG.
8. Best Adapted Screenplay (Best Book-to-Movie Adaptation)
Harry Potter. I mean, sure, there was a lot missing but seeing that magic come live on screen is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
9. Best Animated Feature (Best Children’s Book)
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. It is for middle-school children so I think it fits in pretty well over here.
10. Best Director (Best New-to-You Author)
Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I recently read Illuminae and am now reading Gemina and oh my god, these books are just so good! I have fallen completely in love with them and I just have no words to explain how I feel about them! I can not wait to read more books by them!
11. Best Short-Film (Best Novella/Short Book)
I don’t really read Novellas so…
12. Best Picture (Best Standalone)
I’d have to go with The Sun Is Also a Star for this. It is a standalone book in which we follow Natasha and Daniel for just one day but somehow, it is just enough. I fell in love with the characters and would surely love to have more but, Nicola Yoon somehow managed to fit enough into a small 300-or so page book and made me fall madly in love with it.
13. Best Documentary (Best Historical Fiction)
I don’t read much of historical fiction, but can I count The Infernal Devices as historical fiction too, because it is set in the 19th century?
14. Best Original Soundtrack (Best Audiobook)
Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan. The narrator was great and she kept me hooked. I loved how she gave the book effects and well, it was a spectacular journey!
15. Best Foreign Film (Best Book With Diverse Representation)
I’d have to go with The Upside of the Unrequited for this one. Becky Albertalli sure does know how to include all types of people and well, this one is a great example!
So, that’s all about me for today. What books would you give these awards to? Do you agree with the books/character I chose? Tell me what you thought about my post in the comments below!
