Ellen Page on Her Oscar Nomination

The teen-pregnancy comedy Juno received four Oscar nominations Tuesday, including a best actress nod for Ellen Page. Madeleine Brand talks to the youngest nominee in the bunch about the sudden attention.

Page says her plans for the future haven't changed. The only movie she is certain to do — a Drew Barrymore picture about a girl who runs away from home to join a roller derby crew — she's had in the works for a while.

She's not bothered that people keep calling Juno a "quirky little indie flick," but she does take issue with people who try to say it's making a political statement about abortion.
