Roger Ebert predicts the future

In September 2007, Juno was just another program blurb in the 200+ film slate at the Toronto International Film Festival. Then it screened to deafening acclaim, and Roger Ebert was there to help set the hype stirring. Though unable to speak due to a recent surgery, his words were no less powerful in a September 9 blog entry: "I don’t know when I’ve heard a standing ovation so long, loud and warm as the one after Jason Reitman’s Juno, which I predict will become quickly beloved when it opens at Christmas time, and win a best actress nomination for its 20-year-old star, Ellen Page."
