Strike confusion caused Diablo to miss Critics Choice

After "Juno" won best comedy, the gang came backstage and made a surprising confession. Confusion about the writers' strike caused screenplay writer Diablo Cody to miss the show. At first she planned to boycott it deliberately because she thought that was the party line. Then, when she heard that it was really OK, she got caught up at a business meeting and didn't have time to break free, get home, climb in a gown and get to the ceremony. Below, many of the "Juno" crew who did make the event, including Ellen Page and Allison Janney. Click here to see up-to-the-minute photos from the event.
