Among this year’s winners, I was really intrigued by Diablo Cody (Best Original Screenplay for Juno). Because for one she uses the devil’s name for her pen name and second, when she got up the stage my eyes caught this huge but cute tattoo on her right arm. Anyway, so I did a little research on her, and I found out that she worked as a stripper for a year and her experiences regarding on the said job were chronicled on her blog. Isn’t she awesome? I mean she just proved to everyone that she is more than meets the eye. =)
