The film world has its fingerprints all over this year's Pulitzer Prize winners, announced this morning. 

Donna Tartt's bestseller and book-that-everyone's-reading "The Goldfinch" nabbed the Prize for fiction. Producer Nina Jacobson ("The Hunger Games") is currently at work adapting it for the big screen.

Meanwhile, Annie Baker's play "The Flick," about three movie theater employees, took top honors for drama.

The Washington Post and the Guardian scored the Pulitzer for Journalism, on their lid-blowing reporting of the Edward Snowden NSA scandal; coverage came from a number of journalists including muckraking filmmaker Laura Poitras, who contributed to both WashPo and the Guardian.

A full list of the 2014 Pulitzer winners is here.
