» Top 10 movie characters of the decade

From wizards to warrior women and vampires to virgins, the decade has been memorable for film characters.

Here are our top 10 choices:


5. Juno

Ellen Page's pregnant teen-title character of Jason Reitman's 2007 comedy drama was a poster child for generation Y, with her world-weary attitude and sarcastic slacker dialogue (for which United States of Tara creator Diablo Cody would win the Best Original Screenplay Oscar). Originally a festival favourite with a limited release, word-of-mouth praise propelled it to more than $250 million at the box office, making it the highest grossing of the Best Film Oscar nominees in 2008. (It lost to No Country for Old Men.) Media outlets also reported on the “Juno effect” after a rash of teen pregnancies in US high schools and that of the 17-year-old daughter of then-vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Bizarrely, the film was also accused of being both pro-choice and pro-life, though Reitman said, “Juno seems to be a mirror, and people (on both sides) see themselves in it”.
