We're still buzzing after the thrilling results of the Golden Globes 2017, and - excitingly for us booklovers - many of the movies and shows that received nominations were originally inspired by brilliant books. Check out some of these riveting titles below.
This enthralling sci-fi film features peculiar, seemingly sinister creatures that arrive on Earth in huge, grey pods. Amy Adams stars as a talented linguist who is asked to try to understand and communicate with the aliens, and discover why exactly they've come to Earth. As she comes to understand their language, she also comes to realise their astonishing secret - a secret that will change the very fabric of reality. The film is based on Ted Chiang's short story, Story of Your Life.
Based on Saroo Brierley's memoir, A Long Way Home, this film follows a boy who is separated from his brother and ends up alone on the streets of Calcutta. He is eventually taken into an orphanage and then adopted by an Australian couple, with whom he is relatively happy. However, he can't help thinking about the family he lost. Can he find his mother, half a world away? The film stars Dev Patel as Saroo.
This incredible true story is based on Margot Lee Shetterley's novel of the same name, and follows NASA's African-American female mathematicians, who were pivotal figures in America's space program. These 'coloured computers' would calculate the flight paths and work out the equations that would enable historic scientific achievements and ultimately launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. The film stars Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae as two of these inspirational scientists.
This incredibly successful television series is based on George R. R. Martin's riveting and famously unpredictable fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. The series follows a range of characters - some of them loved, others loathed! - as they battle to win the Iron Throne and go to war not only with each other, but with an ever-growing undead army. The TV series features many well-known stars, including Emilia Clarke and Charles Dance, but it was Peter Dinklage who picked up a Golden Globe back in 2012 for his portrayal of the cunning and courageous Tyrion Lannister.

Based on Austin Wright's novel, Tony & Susan, this film stars Amy Adams as Susan, a frustrated and unfulfilled gallery owner who receives a mysterious package from her estranged ex-husband, Tony. It contains the manuscript of a novel, Nocturnal Animals, which Tony claims was inspired by Susan. As Susan starts to read the manuscript, she quickly becomes engrossed, and three plotlines begin to intertwine: Susan's current life, the narrative of Tony's manuscript, and flashbacks to the former couple's shared past. Is the manuscript a harmless work of catharsis - or a threat?
