Did You Know?
People used to say, you know you're in the hands of a good screenwriter when you're not aware of the writing. I've never subscribed to that. In Juno

Won 19 Prime Time Emmy awards--more than any person in history. As producer he has won nine for The Simpsons
(1989), three for Taxi
(1978), three for Mary Tyler Moore
(1970) and one for The Tracey Ullman Show
(1987); as writer he won two for "Mary Tyler Moore" and one for "The Tracey Ullman Show".
