All the Literary Golden Globes Winners

Did you catch the 74th Annual Golden Globes last night? If you did, perhaps you noticed that a chunk of awards went to literary inspired work, such as Fences and The Night Manager. I didn’t catch many of these adaptions or read the books, but it looks like I’ll have to now! Here are the Golden Globe winners with ties to literary work: 

Movies:

Elle for Best Motion Picture-Foreign Language, and Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture- Drama, to Isabelle Huppert 

Based on Oh…, a novel by Philippe Djian

Congratulations to all the winners, and we hope to see more literary success in the future. I, personally, hope for at least one female director to be nominated in next year’s Golden Globes, as well…
