Professional relationship with Diablo Cody[edit]

Novick has taken part in several projects with screenwriter Diablo Cody, including Jennifer's Body, and Juno,[5] for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2008, and won a Christopher Award and an Independent Spirit Award.[6]

Novick claims to have found Diablo Cody by reading Cody's blog while she was a blogger living in Minneapolis. He found "her voice [to be] so interesting and so fresh". Inspired by her writing, he rang Cody and asked her whether she had ever considered writing a book or a screenplay. As a result of Novick's encouragement, Cody wrote the script which would become Juno.[7]

As of 2009, Novick is working with Cody on a cinematic adaptation of Sweet Valley High, ""Young Adult.[8] and Rock of Ages[9]

Partial filmography[edit]


In 2008, Novick won both a Christopher Award and an Independent Spirit Award for Best Film for Juno. He was nominated for the Producers Guild of America and Academy Award for Best Picture also for Juno.
