" Nominations: 3 - all for Writing ( I don't care how many of you disagree I still think she should've won an Oscar ( more for Writing than for Directing ) but she deserved one ) -Silkwood (1983) -When Harry Met Sally... (1989) -Sleepless in Seattle (1993)"

"heartwarming .. enough said - When Harry Met Sally ... - you've got a mail - Julie and Julia ( one of my all time favorites ) the sad thing that she past away almost a month ago after struggling with sickness leaving the world these words which is one of my favorite quotes ever " Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim. " "

Top Future Directing Greats (2010 Edition) (50 person items)

"2009 Rank: -- Debut a. Sleepless in Seattle (1993) b. You've Got Mail (1998) c. Julie & Julia (2009) She's new to the list, with the addition of her film from last year. I like that she is creating a distinctive style with her films, by showing two worlds throughout the film (which she does in the three films above). I just wish it didn't take 16 years to really make that distinction over three films."
