From The Pole to the Podium

What an evening for Diablo Cody who just won an award for 'Original Screenplay for Juno.' Diablo has come a long way since dancing on poles as a stripper. Now she is holding on to another type of metal, the Oscar. Seems like anyone can make it in Hollywood.

During her speech, Diablo began to cry and said, ”what is happening? This is for the writers, and I want to thank all the writers. I especially want to thank my fellow nominees because I worship you guys and I'm learning from you every day, so thank you very much. I want to thank the Academy, I want to thank Fox Searchlight, Mr. Mudd, Mandate, Dan Dubiecki. I want to thank our incredible cast including the superhuman Ellen Page. I want to thank Jason Reitman, who I consider a member of my family, and I'm in awe of his talent as a filmmaker. I want to thank Sarah Self. I want to thank Mason Novick who knew I could do this before I did. And most of all, I want to thank my family for loving me exactly the way I am.”

Congrats Diablo!
