That's quite the ballsy statement!
Avatar star Sigourney Weaver claims that the only reason James Cameron didn't win the Oscar for Best Director was because he wasn't a lady and the Academy wanted to make history by giving Kathryn Bigelow the grand prize!
Plus, Sigourney's phrasing is just pure clASS!
"Jim didn't have breasts, and I think that was the reason," said Weaver. "He should have taken home that Oscar."
And she's not biased!
"In the past, 'Avatar' would have won because they [Oscar voters] loved to hand out awards to big productions, like 'Ben-Hur.' Today it's fashionable to give the Oscar to a small movie that nobody saw," she continued.
