I suppose, but hey I am bias when it comes to this lil film!

Two flicks that got ignored actually: Zodiac and The Darjeeling Limited.

I liked Juno, I even liked the script, save for some of the more hipster-shit lines ("homeskillet" line, por ejemplo), but it's not major award-worthy.

I'll refrain from the appropriating the current trend of pasting that 15 times.

You're welcome.

I actually felt that way about Little Miss Sunshine. I liked it, but didn't think it was nearly as good as (apparently) everyone else. I was so relived it didn't win Best Picture.

I liked LMS more than Juno and can probably watch that one more. It's definitely more deserving of any acclaim than Juno is, that's for sure.

Back to Juno, Ellen Page does deserve mention, but probably not the film as a whole. Her character, and the way she played it, reminded me of Holden Cauffield from Catcher in the Rye - maybe I'm alone in that comparison.

Little Miss Sunshine didn't belong in that lineup last year either. But at least it didn't come off as amateurish and too winky-winky.

Plus, that moment where Olive comes out to Superfreak had me laughing harder than anything in Juno.

I've yet to see Juno, but, I bet it pales in comparison to LMS. Agreed that LMS was a tad overrated, but I still enjoyed/enjoy it a lot. I'm guessing Juno comes, and then it'll go.

He's still talking to his lady friend. She needs a name beyond YLB's lady friend.

No, Lance looks at Laz with something a tad more powerful than familial love, YLB. Different category there.

I thought I was after Dalton's junk.

Make up your mind.
