In ten years, we'll remember this movie for introducing Olivia Thirlby | Photo courtesy of Fox Searchlight

Now that all the hubbub has subsided, can we all agree that Juno was really just an okay movie and that there's no way Ellen Page should ever have been nominated for an Oscar? All I know is that whenever Rainn Wilson or Olivia Thirlby were on-screen I paid zero attention to the dour and monotone Page. In a just world Juno's best picture nomination would have gone to Before the Devil Knows You're Dead. Do you know how good this movie was? I didn't even hate Ethan Hawke in it. That's really saying something. Hoffman, of course, was his usual miracle. It's a minor film, but Jeff Garlin was great in Marty, er, I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With. I know I've said this in regards to other films, but I loved everything about Lars and the Real Girl except the actual movie.
