Reitman’s Juno among top contenders for Indie Spirit film awards
Jason Reitman’s warm and quirky film Juno, which stars rising Canadian stars Ellen Page and Michael Cera, is among the top nominees for the Film Independent Spirit Awards, announced in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Juno, which was one of the buzz-worthy films at the Toronto International Film Festival and also won the top prize at the Rome Film Festival, netted four nominations, including a best director nod for Montreal-born Reitman, an acting nod for Page and another in the best first screenplay category for debut writer Diablo Cody.
The movie, starring Page as a whip-smart pregnant teen who must find parents for her unborn child, also faces stiff competition in the best feature category.
Other best feature contenders include two other top nominees, French drama The Diving Bell and the Butterfly ó which also received four nods ó and the Bob Dylan-inspired ensemble film I’m Not There, which won nominations in four categories and will also receive the Robert Altman Award (a new honour paying tribute to the ensemble cast, director and casting director in single film).
Rounding out the best feature nominees are A Mighty Heart and Paranoid Park.
Reitman’s rivals for best director include Todd Haynes (I’m Not There), Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), Gus Van Sant (Paranoid Park) and Tamara Jenkins (The Savages).
Actress Tara Podemski, recognized in the best supporting female category for her performance in Four Sheets to the Wind, is also among the Canadian contenders, along with documentarian Jennifer Baichwal for her film Manufactured Landscapes.

Handed out each year by the Los Angeles-based group Film Independent, the awards pay tribute to low-budget and arthouse filmmakers working outside of the traditional major studio structure or those creating works for smaller, specialty divisions.
The awards have in the past few years been one of several prominent barometers for the Academy Awards, with films such as Brokeback Mountain, Capote, Sideways and Monster taking trophies before going on to Oscar glory.
The Film Independent Spirit Awards are typically presented the day before the Academy Awards telecast at a casual, but still star-studded beachside ceremony in Santa Monica, Calif.
