It's the film award season again, and the preview to the Oscars, comes in the shape of the BAFTAs. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts, will this evening present awards to the best actors, actresses, designers, composers and writers to honour the latest cinematic year. Many of this year's nominees, as with so many successful film franchises, find their roots in the literary world.

- 'Up in the Air' - based on 2001 novel by Walter Kirn
- 'Precious' - based on 1996 novel 'Push' by Sapphire
Numerous others join the list, and as the stars arrive, everyone waits in anticipation to see whether they are justly rewarded.
