She was absolutely annoying. But I don't really blame Ellen, since the character was really a reflection of Diablo Cody, the writer. Juno's character throughout the entire movie just seemed like she was constantly trying to prove how "eclectic" she was, and it really made her seem like just another one of those teenage girls who pride themselves on being artsy.
So although I loved the movie itself, I couldn't stand Juno as a character.
EDIT - And by looking at most of your flamers, they seem to fit into the demographic I previously mentioned, so I wouldn't quite take their opinions as critics seriously.
EDIT II - To Myst's comment: Have you seen her in the third X-Men film? She made me dislike Shadow Cat. I don't dispute the fact that Ellen isn't the best actress out there, but Hard Candy had a similar atmosphere to Juno as I recall. Sometimes actors and actresses are more sought after for roles that they had basically already portrayed. So she's probably going to end up being another one of those typecasted actors that can't really show dynamic acting abilities anyway.
