That’s how the Juno screenwriter describes herself these days. And she’s started an Internet talk show:
Editor-in-Chief Nikki Finke - tip her here.

Eh, at least she’s honest.
It must be some kind of awful to live inside Diablo Cody’s head.
Here is a woman who is clearly very smart, talented, and self-aware… but she can’t stop herself. She has such a debilitating thirst to put herself or her voice at the center of all her creative projects, and it totally undermines her otherwise impressive abilities as a story-teller/producer.
She should learn how to be in the business without being in the business of Diablo Cody. As a celebrity, or a public persona, she has the shelf life of a Paris Hilton. As a writer/creator she could last so much longer. But I don’t think she will.
“Attention starved” is the sad truth.
Are you an abject idiot? The shelf life of Paris Hilton? Paris Hilton has been a star for 7 or 8 years with no discernible talent or ability. I can think of 100 names off the top of my head to fit your attempted analogy, but no, you go with Paris. Moron.
Hey, second dipshit – Paris Hilton isn’t a star anymore. By any standard. She doesn’t even sell tabloids (ask an US editor) I think that was the first guy’s point. That, and the fact that Diablo isn’t cultivating her talent, she’s cultivating her fame. Apt.
Diablo will probably have a similar shelf life – 5 years.
I had never seen too much of Diablo Cody before this video, but frankly I really enjoyed the it and I hope she does more. I also really liked “Juno” and I a am glad to hear that she won the Oscar for it. I think it was solid movie, through and through.
The snobbery on this board is insanely unbecoming. Aren’t you people aware that we are now entering into the era of the Double Rainbow? That it’s actually ok to be happy for someone else’s successes and dreams and artistic vision? Ehhh…fuck it, snarky is a lot more fun.
Either way, straight up, I think her Airstream is sweet and I hope that she gets a lot out of it beyond just riding it up and down Laurel Canyon.
It’s because she’s a hack and not a real screenwriter! Biggest Oscar joke ever!!
And an insult to every writer in Hollywood.
The Academy uses the best screenplay Oscar to reward no-talent hacks like Cody and Damon and Affleck.
She’s a fake and her post-Oscar career shows it. Her agents ties her to a TV show (she didn’t write) and her second feature bombed because it reflected her true talent level.
“good will hunting” deserved it. “boogie nights” was damn good, but gwh deserved it. i cringed when “juno” won over “michael clayton” but let us not make silly statements.
you are a bitch. way to make your headline about a second of titled footage.
First, the Joels’ clawing and fighting for the chance to air their dirty laundry in public, now screenwriters hosting internet talk shows…
Anyone long for the day when agents sold (something other than their personal lives), writers wrote, and actors were the fame whores?
Maybe if DC focused a little less on self-promotion and more on her craft, we wouldn’t have been subjected to “Jennifer’s Body.”
Really Nikki? You’re really gonna call someone ELSE attention starved?
The very last thing she is, is attention-starved. She’s the World’s most overrated writer.
She really should have stuck with stripping — she’d have got more attention. And then we’d not have to sit through her overwritten, unrealistic, tedious and juvenile treatises on sex.
Incidentally, can she actually write about anything else? Probably not.
i don’t care about her personally but she did write an original movie with a fresh voice and all you can do is act bitter about it. that is pretty sad.
“…shitty bread…”?! I guess that (partially) explains the extra 50 pounds.
Okay. That was mean. I take it back. (I think Ezekiel is good, though…)
Enjoyed the first episode of RBT. Look forward to Ep 2.
..or the fact that she’s having a baby, or just had one.
ya, and maybe cause she is pregnant you idiot
The Chelsea Handler one is funnier, you can really tell that Diablo and Chelsea are friends. Adam just seems like he’s on something in this, yet he is still likable even though he’ll never be a big star.
I really like it until I read this post that she is friends with Chelsea Handler. I totally dislike Handler and lower my respect for anyone who would be her friend.
It’s a toss-up between Diablo Cody and Kevin Smith as to which is the bigger self-absorbed asshole. Both suffer from over-inflated egos bordering on a pathological need for attention. Maybe both should do the world a favor and fall into a volcano and never return
Don’t you dare put Dia-blow Cooty and Lord Smith on the same level. MR Smith is a hilarious raconteur with a huge following who fills large auditoriums with a devoted horde of people who want to bask in his crude, stoned awesomeness. He’s a genuine guy who has made good and bad films but has enough of a history to warrant some respect. He may not be your cup of tea Sarah, but to some he’s a 21st century prophet and, I’m saying it, saviour- not to mention a shill for the weirdest podcast sponsor on the intertubes – Fleshlight… I mean that is just too fucking bizarre to go unappreciated. So anyway Sarah, let’s keep the hate focussed, okay? we’re here to say shitty stuff about Diablo Cody who we’ve all never met, right? (the stupid bitch). Let’s leave my precious KS out of it…
There is a third contender.
“…Jennifer’s Body, which did really well in Slovakia…” At least she has a sense of humor about it!
it didn’t even do well there I’m sure
Really funny , unpretentious and entertaining. Thanks Diablo
Seriously, stop the hate. You guys wish you were Diablo. What a mean title to use about her.
I like her a lot. But hey, I have a thing for Brainiacs with cleavage. If only she wore glasses.
Who isn’t attention starved?
It would be a lot easier to hate her if these weren’t funny.
And they are funny.
I can see why people think she’s over-rated, not many writers do tours on late night talk shows and open up about their sordid pasts, but her storytelling is solid.
Nice to see she’s finally admitting what most of us have known all along. But she also forgot to mention she’s: untalented, uninspired, unoriginal, unfocused and unworthy of our attention.
When ALL your work is about teenagers and sex that oughta tell you you’ve got serious issues.
Her fifteen minutes are over. I just hope the folks who were defending her to the hilt a year ago don’t suddenly decide she’s not worth a rip anymore. That’s your horse, You’re stuck with her!
JaySmack you wrote: when all your work is about teenagers and sex that oughta tell you you’ve got serious issues….
Well, um, it worked out pretty well for John Hughes, didn’t it?
The headline represents everything that is wrong with this town— Let’s bring down someone for trying to get ahead and doing it successfully. Where’s the blogger love, Nikki?
And for the jerk that said Diablo’s oscar was a joke. Please, leave Starbucks now and head straight to LAX because chances are you will never get as far as Diablo Cody now…stupid hater.
There’s something *very* wrong with a young woman who willingly disfigures herself in that manner.
Huh? ‘..a young woman who willingly (as opposed to unwillingly?) disfigures herself in that manner.”?? You mean the bun in the oven? I agree. Babies. Ick.
probably he’s talking about the tattoos and piercings, genius
I think she’s funny and enough people want to work with her that she will likely have another box office smash.
Jennifer’s Body is an excellent film with something on its mind. It snuck up on me and really stuck with me. Amazing how the HateThink just gets going and takes over. Ah, the internet. These clips are fun, btw.
What was on its mind? Don’t throw that nonsense out there and then not explain yourself.
And may I have your mailing address so I can send you my JENNIFER’S BODY ticket stub for a full refund?
You only start a talk show when you could never be invited as a guest on a talk show.
Jennifer’s Body showed us her real talent. Juno was a fraud.
Shame that Brody didn’t get to play The Flash in Warner’s scrapped “Justice League”.
Guy has real potential and is still young enough.
Although I think he’s got the charisma and obviously kind personality for Jonathan Nolan’s “Superman”.
Is she pregnant?
Suddenly Diablo is vying to become the female Joel Stein.
She’s too late.
Joel Stein is the female Joel Stein.
And there goes my keyboard. Well done.
