Elliot Page and Oprah

3 of 7
With all of the acclaim Juno is receiving, Elliot's performance has generated Oscar® buzz—but Elliot is concentrating on his work.

"I'm first and foremost an actor, because I love to act. I'm obviously not an actor for [awards]," he says. "Of course it's extremely exciting, and it represents that, wow, maybe I'll get to be in a couple more movies."

Elliot says the recognition has also given him a sense of choice, allowing him to choose roles he is really passionate about. "And that, [to] an actor at any age, is a massive gift."
