Achievement in Directing - Jason Reitman, 'Up in the Air'
"I just loved the book, and I felt like I had to write it, and that was it. I thought it was the kind of movie that would speak to a specific kind of person -- maybe if you traveled, maybe if you had intimacy issues with women -- I really didn't expect this. And it's probably why it worked out, because when you just write from your heart and you write with your passion people recognize it. That's one of my favorite things about movies," said Sheldon Turner, who co-wrote the film's script with director Jason Reitman.
