Juno Nominated for Four Oscars

I heard the news on the way into work this morning, I don't know quite how I feel about this. Now, full disclosure I haven't seen the movie. I read the script online (pdf) thanks to a lovely tip from Pop Candy but didn't exactly fall in love with the story.

The writing was so-so. A very rough and culture injected attempt at an Indie flick. The dialogue was inappropriate for a character so young, and no matter how cool Ellen Page's character was supposed to be, the complete lack of internal conflict when it came to her pregnancy left the story feeling numb. Now, like I said I didn't see the movie so I can't attest to the acting or directing, and the movie does seem cute...but Oscar worthy? Discuss.

wow. you really need to see the movie. I think the acting helps bring a new dimension to the script.
