Best Actor: “Best Male Protagonist”

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

Adrian from the Bloodlines deserves this award. I loved his character arc throughout the series.

Best Actress: “Best Female Protagonist”

You: “You are supposed to choose one.” Me: Nope.No can do.

I really tried, trust me, to choose a contender for this category but I found it too difficult. Instead,I present to you six wonderful ladies : Omat from The Wolf in the Whale, Emma Carstairs from The Dark Artifices series, Vasya from The Bear and the Nightingale , Kya from Where The Crawdads Sing, all the females from The Priory of The Orange Tree and last but not the least, Sydney Ivashkov(previously Sage) from Bloodlines series .

Best Cinematography: “Best Plot Twist”

why the devil stalks death
where death meets the devil

I have read far too many thrillers and other books with as equally tantalizing plot twists as they’re in a thriller. For now, I’ll choose Jane Eyre(my all-time favorite), Verity and The Winters.

Best Costume Design: “Best Book Cover”

I haven’t yet read King of Scars but I am in lust over the cover. It has my Nikolai as my main characters too so…yeah I’m in lust .

Best Supporting Actress and Actor: “Best Male and Female Sidekicks/Supporting characters”

mortal word

My favorite male side character is Nikolai and my favorite female side character would be Margaret from The Priory of the Orange Tree.

Best On-Screen Kiss:“Best Couple/Romance”

You see only The Kiss Quotient but believe me when I say, I could list another 100 books here but for the sake of mine, yours and internet’s sanity, let’s not list them, yeah ?

Best Original Screenplay: “Most Unique Plot/World”

….. What? There’s nothing to say except here’s my review

Best Adapted Screenplay: “Best Book-to-Movie Adaptation” OR “A book that should be adapted into a film”

I loved the movies so fricking much! I haven’t read the entire series but I saw all the movies and loved them a tad better than the books.

Best Animated Feature: “A book that would work well in an animated format” OR “Best Graphic Novel” OR “Best Children’s Book”

fence vol 2

I loved this book as a kid! Presenting “Charlotte’s Web” a.k.a. my childhood book crush.

Best Director: “A writer you discovered for the first time”

I discovered Hafsah Faizal through Book Twitter and then I received a proof copy of her debut novel, We Hunt the Flame.  I was completely blown away by her writing. I highly suggest you add this book to your TBR or pre-order it (if you love reading fantasy)

Best Short Film: “Best Novella” or “Short Book”

I rarely read novellas or short stories but I make exceptions when they are written by my favorite authors.

Best Picture: “Best Stand-Alone”

Things in Jars by Jess Kidd is an incredible novel set in the Victorian era.

Best Documentary: “Best Historical Fiction” OR “Best Non-Fiction”

I loved both of Madeline Miller’s books : Circe and Song of Achilles

Best Original Soundtrack: “Best Audiobook” or “Best Book in Verse”

Best Foreign Film: “Best diverse author” OR “Best book with Diverse Representation”
