    Diablo Cody’s win was, I think, the worst win for writing in a long time. Anyone else deserved that Oscar over her. The Savages was great, as was my personal pick, Michael Clayton. I love Brad Bird and the script for Ratatouille was great. Hell, even Lars and the Real Girl, which I have not seen, would have been an acceptable win for me. I thought Cody’s script for Yougn Adult was way better than the script for Juno, but she was not nominated.

    If three of you voted Savages than why are there only two reflected in the poll? My vote is for Ratatouille. Its script was its strongest asset.

    The Savages? Are we being serious? Lars and the Real Girl was easily the best script in that lineup.

    Lars and the Real Girl was my favorite film of 2007, and this is coming from a die-hard fan of Paul Thomas Anderson.

    Of the nominees, the best original screenplay is MICHAEL CLAYTON.

    JUNO’s win is cringe-worthy.

    LOL. Except for Tilda Swinton’s beautiful performance, Michael Clayton was a huge mess.

    Yuck I absolutely despised Juno with burning passion! (Though I really did like Page’s performance.)
    Definitely the fantastic Ratatouille!! 
    @vincelette I agree, I don’t understand the hype for Michael Clayton. Besides the excellent Swinton (who pretty much carried the film) all I remember is Clooney playing himself like he normaly does in every other film.

    Yeah…I was watching “Burn After Reading” with my father today for the 100th time and he was like “Hmm…this Clooney guy is fine but he is playing the same character in every movie…”
    And he’s not even a “movie fan”.

    If I have to find a male one next to Viola Davis who is overrated in Hollywood, I’ll choose Mr. Clooney.

    I can think of lots of movies that are a “huge mess,” but that does not describe MICHAEL CLAYTON.

    Are you sure that you weren’t a “huge mess” when you watched the movie?
