"Can you hold on for a second? I'm on my hamburger phone. It's just like really awkward to talk on."
I'm beyond excited that Juno got nominated for so many Oscars, including Best Picture, because it was one of my favorite movies of 2007. The awesome music, the whip-smart dialogue, and the hipster-geek coupling of Michael Cera and Ellen Page? Perfect. And we all know what was my favorite part of the movie, and it must have been yours too because I've seen it brought up in comments, and all over Buzz and Yum: Juno's hamburger phone!
Not only is it a hilarious-looking phone, I think it mirrors Juno's characterization at that part of her life: Quirky, fun, and unexpected. Juno may not be a high-tech geek, but she's a geek nonetheless and I loved her for that. I heard that Diablo Cody actually had a hamburger phone when she was younger, and wrote it into the script. If you're equally as entranced by the hamburger phone, you can buy your own for $16 — and check out the one they released as a promotion. Stay tuned for more Oscar worthy gadgets this week!
