Sigourney Weaver Believes Cameron Didn't Get Oscar Because He's Not Female

| Filed under: Film FlickersAwardz

wenn8303059.jpg

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.

Lame.

    I actually agree with her… how did one of the most famous movies ever not win? People LOVED IT. I thought it was awesome. The Hurt Locker was not that tight… at all.

  2. KatMG says – reply to this


    2

    uh she's definitely right on that one. Hurt Locker sucked.



  3. 3

    The Oscars are political…it's nothing new.
    Same reason Denzel Washington won the oscar for Training day over Sean Penn's I am Sam. Sean Penn was the better actor, but Denzel is black. Training Day was THE WORST. Halle Berry was great in Monsters Ball, but again, who the hell saw it. She deserved it.
    James Cameron will just have to settle with his billions of dollars.



  4. 4

    shes right! nobody saw hurt locker and those who did fell asleep!



  5. 5

    How about not giving it to Avatar because the only thing worth mentioning was visual effects? It got the awards it deserved.



  6. 6

    I found it to be poetic irony that he lost to his ex wife for a film he thought couldn't win. Maybe next time he won't be such a jerk to people…Karma can be a very powerful thing.



  7. 7

    i didn't see either so since I like Sigourney, I'll have to side with her………..



  8. 8

    yeah she's definitely right. i mean its great that a women won but i think they should win when the movie is actually good. no one even heard of the hurt locker until they started giving it nominations. and everyone complains about avatar being unoriginal, look at hollywood now, it's all remakes or books turning into movies.

    i think avatar was a good movie and it was directed beautifully which was what the award was about. who the best director was.



  9. 9

    I agree with her.



  10. 10

    Hurt locker was on another level
    Avatar sucked, the only good part was the visual effects I guess
    Nothing more to it



  11. 11

    She's right though. Who saw The Hurt Locker? I don't think I know one person who saw it.



  12. 12

    Kiss kiss kiss -my ears hurt from her the loud ridiculous display of kissing her boss' a*s. She obviously needs/wants a job from the guy that gave her most of her career.



  13. 13

    Lame? No, 100% TRUE. The past few Best Picture winners have been Lame actually. He deserved that Oscar, Hurt Locker was a good movie but BEST PICTURE?? NO WAY.



  14. 14

    I think what she said was so not STYLISH . The Hurt Locker was a much better film than the blue people movie tripping on floating things and connecting their tails to animals.
    The Oscar went to the right person so Sigourney Weaver could do the classy thing and not say anything.

  15. 15

    I gotta say… I didn't really get why Avatar didn't win an important Oscar, I mean, it's an AMAZING movie, and I think it's even the most successful movie ever. Personally, I'd not even heard about the Hurt Locker, let alone even ever saw it… But then again, I haven't seen the Hurt Locker, so who am I to say that Avatar should've gotten it?



  16. 16

    What a bitchy comment.
    Re: AlliedForces – Really?!? Who the hell saw Monster's Ball? It was a brilliant film!



  17. 17

    yeah and Ben-Hur is actually one of the greatest films of all times so maybe the movie deserved to win an Oscar? Avatar is visually striking but lack of storyline and poor acting performances made the film suck, I thought it was very boring and i've seen films like that million times before and probably will see million times again in future. Why hasn't Johnny Depp won an Oscar huh? He is one of the greatest actors of all times



  18. 18

    AAHAHAH omg YES that is SOOO TRUE.
    FUcking love her



  19. 19

    I agree with her :-) ))))
    Hurt Locker is nothing special, Black Hawk Dawn was something like this long ago. But that film didn't win anything.
    As for director - Avatar is a huge mechanism and a director should be really talented to put everything together.



  20. 20

    didn't know Sigourney was like this. i kind of lost respect for her a little. does she really think she was in the best picture? Avatar was pretty to look at, and only interesting IF you had the 3-d glasses on, otherwise the sequences went on for daaaaays. Ben-Hur was epic and didn't need hundreds of millions of special effects and a brand new invented camera to be brilliant. How does she compare the two, even in a minor way? The Oscars aren't about how many people saw the movie. It's not the people's choice awards. That's what always annoys me about when people say Avatar should have won because it made a bunch of money. The Oscars hate comedy, science fiction and horror, it's pretty clear. Or maybe those genres suck balls this era, unlike many years ago.
    Re: AlliedForces – I have to disagree with you on training day sucking. it was one of Denzel's best performances, he didn't have to "go full retard" to win (which still would have been a win for Sean Penn on social values in a way), he can't control being a black man, but I do agree that that year (and pretty much every year since the 70s) was beyoooooond civil rights/politically charged. Sidney Poitier got the honorary Oscar and Halle won Best Actress and embarrassed every black woman in the world.



  21. 21

    I wonder why money is so much involved in the Oscars now? Why don't good movies made with small budget to a small audience group never win everything? The best film that came out last year was definitely 500 Days Of Summer and it wasn't notice anywhere. Can I ask Why? The film had very original script and directioning and very good and talented actors. I think that Oscars is just fest for big movie production companies and "it" actors, lame



  22. 22

    I love Sigourney but she is out of her mind with this one. Avatar was an amazing achievement in visual effects which is why it won in that category. The storyline however…What a joke! I hate to tell all of you that keep mentioning that no one seen Hurt Locker…Oscars are not based on box office sales. Whether or not the whole world seen it, is irrelevant. Academy members saw it and rightfully thought it was better.



  23. 23

    The Hurt Locker was an amazing movie.
    Avatar was HORRIBLE….the visual effects were AMAZING…but that's about it!

    I agree not many people saw the hurt locker but after it won I saw it and it was amazing. I wish I would have spent my 13.50 on the Hurt Locker instead of the Pocahontas remake known as Avatar!



  24. 24

    Of course he has breasts - he is a human after all. FYI Sigourney - men get breast cancer too.



  25. 25

    shes right Cameron got robbed, who the fuck seen hurt locker?



  26. 26

    Re: Serena Loves Mario
    I saw it! and She was great, in fact I can't even remember who she was up against. I didn't agree with Denzel getting his Oscar though. Not his best performance, and not really any different from any of his other performances.

    I saw the Hurt Locker and I have to say that of all the films there it deserved it the most. Avatar was visually stunning and it received the awards it deserved.

    But I'm sticking to my guns. The Oscars are political.



  27. 27

    She's right. I agree with her 100%. Avatar was a million times better than that lame-ass Hurt Locker.



  28. 28

    "In the past, 'Avatar' would have won because they [Oscar voters] loved to hand out awards to big productions, like 'Titanic.' Today it's fashionable to give the Oscar to a small movie that nobody saw," she continued.

    That's what she meant to say … so what's all the bitching about ? It's not like Cameron has Oscars or a pile of dough. She says it because Cameron always considers her for movie roles … like that's not political ! Gimme a break!



  29. 29

    Re: AnnieJ – @ 25 - maybe she should've specified by saying "large breasts"……??



  30. 30

    Agree with her 100%. Hurt Locker was an ok movie, but nothing earth shattering. Avatar on the other hand, whether you liked it or not blows Hurt Locker away for Directing.



  31. 31

    I agree with her 100%! They wanted to make history.



  32. 32

    wow..what an untrue and overall ignorant thing to say…



  33. 33


  34. 34

    I watched Hurt Locker after seeing it win an oscar and it wasn't terrible but definitely didn't deserve to beat out Avatar.
    I don't give a F**K how big of an ass Cameron is, he still deserved the award hands down!



  35. 35

    she's dead on. if you disagree, you know nothing about fimmaking.



  36. 36

    the hurt locker had ZERO directorial innovation.



  37. 37

    Re: danieltroppy

    LOL! 'STYLISH'? Really?!

    I don't think she was trying to be 'STYLISH'



  38. 38

    Avatar has great effects but the point of the matter is it's boring as hell. It's not a great movie in the sense of plot, only in visuals. It won best special effects which it really did deserve but honestly, best picture?



  39. 39

    …puh-leeze! what isn't a fucking pocahontas remake??? such facile arguments — everything's dripping w/ white hero saves the savages bullshit, so find something else!– the reason avatar should have won is because the "public" liked it — they went to see it — however, the awards have nothing to do w/ what actual ticket-buying peons think — and if you liked the hurt locker, you're even more gullible than the people who liked avatar…



  40. 40

    I agree with her. . .



  41. 41

    She actually has a point.



  42. 42

    I agree with Sigourney.



  43. 43

    the thing is…. like the lord of the rings series, the next one WILL be even better, and WILL also clean up the awards, "it wont happen overnite but it will happen".
    Cameron has a huge ego and works hard to make what he wants happen.



  44. 44

    …and, is this the same "academy" that gave bullock the oscar for best actress over streep? — yeah, sages, indeed…



  45. 45

    Well, he's halfway there, since he's such a bitch…



  46. 46

    You know who I want to win an oscar really badly? Leonardo Decaprio. Why haven't this brilliant actor won an oscar yet? Not cool. I saw both movies. Avatar was like OMG! I wanted to see it again and again. The Hurt Locker was raw and real and organic. And it had me thinking about what these men are doing for their country. Everyday they put their lives on the line. They were two great movies and they both got nominated. She even won at the British version of the Oscars. If you didn't see it, rent it.



  47. 47

    about half the wins are political. best supporting went to a black actress. If it didn't, there would have been an uproar. Health Ledger died and he had to win. People were giving it to him BEFORE THE MOVIE CAME OUT. So, y'all didn't really know how he was in it. Just like Peter Finch in Network. You die, and have a major movie coming out, you are almost 100% going to win. No matter who is up against you. Not fair. You don't know if the others are going to ever have another chance to be nominated. or are going to walk out and be hit by a bus. Everything in Hollywood is political. Domestic Violence was big last year. So, chris brown was burried. by this idiot and others. even though rhianna was not a victim of dv. meanwhile many other 'celebrities' do commit dv and they go up for awards ALL THE TIME. right place, wrong time, type of thing. Alice, might win next year, even though it was in first for just maybe 4 weeks. All depends on the favorite 'flavor' of a very 'progressive' hollywood that thinks out of their asses



  48. 48

    Really? Avatar looked amazing but other than that the story was a copy of "Dances With Wolves", which was a million times better than Avatar. Hurt Locker was pretty damn good but I think it was props to a woman making a tight action thriller where men have dominated the genre that helped. I'd have probably given Best Picture to Up in the Air if anything, but Avatar? No fucking way.



  49. 49

    I'd still fuck her up the ass and let her clean me off after.



  50. 50

    UM, NO… HE DIDNT WIN CAUSE HE HAS A DOUCHE BAG OF A PERSONALITY AND THE BITCH ASS SWAGGER JACKS A LAME OVERUSED IDEA AND CHEESY SCRIPT AS THE BASIS FOR WHICH GEORGE LUCAS DID HIS OVER THE TOP SPECIAL EFFECTS!! WHY BTW.. I WOULDNT BE SURPRISED IF ILM WON THE OSCAR FOR SPECIAL EFFECTS BUT LOSER CAMERON GOT NOTHING!! TRUTH.



  51. 51

    i agree with S.W. i saw both movies. The Hurt Locker was sooooo boring. I loved Avatar. Let's just see how the dvd sales pan out!!!!!! lol



  52. 52

    Avatar was a good movie no doubt, but Oscar best pic, no way. The Hurt Locker was moving and more reality. No some story line about blue things. Avatar was a nice get away from real life, but Hurt Locker is whats happening in the REAL world. She needs to shut the hell up!! Plus, Hurt Locker didnt make my ass fall asleep 3 times and I didnt have to seat next to some tree hugger who cried everytime she was inspired. Please!!



  53. 53

    Re: April 20th – I agree and would have thought she would have known to clarify.



  54. 54

    OK, can people think before they speak please? She is talking about BEST DIRECTOR! In no where in her statement did sigourney weaver suggest the movie was best picture. In fact she isn't even talking about Best Picture. This is for Best Director people! And I think she is absolutely right! The Oscar Academy I feel is all about making history now! It has almost nothing to do with merit anymore. James Cameron is one of the best directors of our time, and in terms of his DIRECTING JOB, yes he did one definitely worthy of an Oscar. So please, stop ragging on Weaver, who is a great actress, because she didn't say the story was great, she didn't say the acting was great, she is talking about the Directing. Purely the Directing, And what is with if you saw the movie or not? Does that have anything to do with how great a movie is or is not? The hurt locker was great! Just because YOU did not see it, does not mean that it was bad and another movie deserves the Oscar over another. Both movies were great, but Cameron's directing job is considered revolutionary right now.



  55. 55

    Re: danojescobedo – Yes - all about making history and appearing to be PC in their liberal cocoon. God forbid people should win on merit and a job well done. It certainly helps to be a minority or dead to win.



  56. 56

    I couldn't agree more! Cheers, Sigourney, for having the chutzpah to say what so many are thinking.



  57. 57

    She's kinda right though. Avatar was a great movie with special effects, banked a lot of money at the theatres, etc. Although the Hurt Locker was a great movie too, I think it shouldve gone to Avatar.



  58. 58

    the only awards it deserved were the technical ones-which it got. The Hurt Locker was amazing and deserved its wins. I actually cringed through most of Avatar



  59. 59

    100% accurate! It's about time someone had the guts to say it in public!!



  60. 60

    With regards to directing, I don't know shit about it. Neither do a lot of people here. Cameron directed on a blue screen through a simple story, most of the magic was done by computers. I'M NOT SAYING IT WASN'T COMPLICATED
    However I enjoyed Bigelow's very grainy, organic film. The way it was filmed, It felt more personal. Yes she is a woman, but she did a fantastic job, and props to her.

    Re: AnnieJ
    Women aren't exactly a minority. Perhaps in film making, yes. But we have seen other brilliant female directors in the past get the shaft. Sofia Coppola anyone?



  61. 61

    i'm sprry but avatar was one of the most overrated movies EVER!!!! yes it was visually stunning but other than that it was lame as hell…. get over it!

  62. Bytch says – reply to this


    62

    I agree with her, they wanted publicity for the win, and gave it to the first female director for "Hurt Locker" which was at best a very very very AVERAGE war movie with a poor storyline and terrible dialogue. Avatar was a much better movie, the world records speak for themselves. And the academy hates Cameron, we all know that.



  63. 63

    Sigourney weaver is an idiot! and she clearly is so old that she is from the time when women were raised to hate women…
    Men win that damned award every year, no woman has ever won…she should be happy a woman won…but instead she is bitchy and CLASSLESS.
    This is not the first time she's opened up her big trap and said some offensive things.

    She seems to think she is a man, ever notice that? she thinks she is better than other women, like somehow she isn't like other women, she's special.
    she's specially retarded, and was born into the right family

    her mom was a movie star, and her dad was a head of NBC.
    she has NOTHING to bitch and whine about!

    Avatar got the awards it deserved, for animation. That's all that film was about, was cameron's new 3d animation crap…big effing deal.
    The plot just rips off history, what's so fantastic about that?
    I think Avatar is retarded…I am SO happy it didn't win.

    Perhaps people SHOULD watch the winning film, and perhaps the public - and sigourney - need to realise that just because hoards of brainless people go to see a HORRID film, doesn't make it good. It just means that people are SHEEP.

    She's just insulted because its the first thing anyone's offered her old ass in ages that even had a hope in hell of being nominated for anything.
    sigourney weaver is a woman hating = self loathing MORON.



  64. 64

    I can say this….I never saw Avatar….But I did see the Hurt locker.
    Boring ass propaganda…It was a lame.



  65. 65

    Re: Chuck-cnd – You actually liked the Hurt Locker???
    How old are you??? It was no saving private Ryan…it was fuckin' lame.
    Another level…haha of horseshit…..I haven't seen Avatar so I can't comment on that one.



  66. 66

    The Hurt Locker was a great film that brought a reality to all that goes on overseas.

    I think to say that Kathryn Bigelow won because she had breasts and the Oscars wanted to make history is ridiculous.

    There was another option The Oscars to make history - if the Director of Precious had won also, with him being the first African-American.

    I think giving the award to a movie such as Precious or The Hurt Locker is a smart move as these 2 movies were bases on something real… Avatar not so much.



  67. 67

    I Agree with Sigourney! For one, James should have won for best director, because he created this whole other world. Everything from a single blade of grass, to a whole other language! Its amazing the amount of work and careful thought he put into this. But, sad to say, the Academy just wanted to make history. And, the movie should have won for best picture also! Avatar, its just such an amazing story! Although it is a love story, but there's sooooo many messages in there. For one, its goes to show, how we as humans are killing the planet. Also, shows how humans are blinded by greed. Although I am Native Canadian, the Navi resembled alot to my people. Well, in the past, not so much in the present. What happend to the Navi, happend to us. It is sad, but I don't hold any grudges against it. We still have to learn how to co-exist here, slowly but surley. Anyways, off topic here, to me, what makes a good movie, is emotions. When I watched Avatar, I felt happy, sad, angry, shy, excited, disgusted and triumph. When you feel all sorts of emotions, to me, that what makes it good. Because its reaching out to you on a different level!

    >>>Just my thoughts :)



  68. 68

    wow. nice reverse sexism. what a fuckin' bitch.



  69. 69

    she's hit the nail on the head with that one. If you look at the past winners of best picture, none of them were really that great. Avatar was robbed big time. Overall, as a complete package, Avatar was far better than the other noms.



  70. 70

    Oh, yeah, Perez! You should make a blog about getting more Native Americans/Canadians in the Avatar Sequel! The two main places where alot of Natives live are Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States!!!



  71. 71

    Such a sore loser. Avatar wasn't the best movie of the year nor was The Hurtlocker, even though I enjoyed both. But Avatar was eye candy and that was ALL it was. Stop pretending it's some brilliant piece of work. The effects were astonishing, yes and it got Oscars for that. The story itself was nothing special and nothing new. If it hadn't been for the effects, I probably would've fallen asleep halfway through.



  72. 72

    I wish I could meet her and tell her "You know what, I say 'The Hurt Locker' I didn't however see 'Avatar'" So suck it bitch.



  73. 73

    This is stupid. Hurt Locker was a far superior film. Avatar looked nice, but it had absolutely nothing new in the way of plot. Flat, uninteresting characters, dull story, that's all. Hurt Locker absolutely deserved the win, and I would have thought so even if I had no idea the genders of the respective directors.



  74. 74

    she's absolutely right. these days the academy gives awards to people who play heroes ( in away, like he boooooooooring performance by Sandra Bullock), aparently week victimized roles ( like the girl's perfomance for Precious) and the list goes. it's not about the performance or merit at all, it's all about heroism on the screen and behaving like an 90 years old catholic republican lady off screen. if the actors/actresses don't do that, they get nothing.



  75. 75

    Re: danojescobedo – she also talks about giving out awards (so not just director) "to big productions" and giving the Oscar to "a small movie that nobody saw". And to the person who probably went to some directing class a couple of times and wrote that if you disagree, you know nothing about filmmaking: grow up. If look at some of Bigalow's other work, you'd know she knows a thing or two about directing. She won a couple of BAFTA's too, do they also hate Cameron because he doesn't have boobs?



  76. 76

    Re: www.someonehad2.com

    And you know nothing about spelling!



  77. 77

    Re: malvolio

    Because the "public liked it" maybe it should win an award at the Peoples Choice… not the Oscars.



  78. 78

    The Hurt locker winning was just yet another way for the powers that be in America to make their war look like something right and worthy. Disgusting!!!!! Giving an award to to support a war over giving an award to the biggest movie of all time…pointless!!!
    Who even watches the oscars anyways. Its just a bunch of grand-standing and back-slapping.
    District 9 shoulda won. That was the best movie last year!!!!!!!!!



  79. 79

    I have seen both films and the Hurt Locker deserves its award. It's realistic and has a heart and soul. Avatar is dependent on its special effects. There is nothing beyond that. I would watch Star Wars again compared to Avatar.



  80. 80

    Love Sigourney but awardig the Oscar to a movie because it made a lot of money and had a big budget does not merit an Oscar. No actor ws nominated for an award. Why, because it was a fantasy film and made everyone go oooh and ahhhh. Now, "The Hurt Locker" had everything needed for an Oscar Nomination. The Hurt Locker and Up In Th Air, two small movies with excellent acting deserved to be nominated and if Hurt Locker did not win, Up in The Air should have, way before Avatar. Jeremy Renner was excellent in Hurt Locker. Even Titanic in my opinion was not deserving of a best picture Oscar. Other movie were far superior. No, James did not lose because he was not a female. No, he lost because the academy did not want to reward popularity and big budget, they awarded great acting, great directing and a great movie..



  81. 81

    um bc avatar was boring and hurt locker was better as a film? all technology and special effects aside, avatar wasn't really anything special.



  82. 82

    She's right…

  83. DeeMe says – reply to this


    83

    That's just sad. Hurt Locker was amazing and deserved every award it received. I'm frankly relieved that the academy didn't pull another LOTR and hand an Oscar out just because of the production value.



  84. 84

    Re: AlliedForces – I must clarify - wasn't speaking about women. We'll never be a minority because we rule!



  85. 85

    People are so blinded by ignorance and hype. Avatar was an awesome movie..But Oscar worthy? No..Just because it made 3928409 dollars doesn't mean its a good movie..



  86. 86

    I knew Avatar would not get a Best Picture Oscar when it got Golden Globe and the applause was less that lukewarm. It has nothing to do with PC or witch movie is better. It about the actors, the largest group among the Academy Award voters, being afraid that they will be substituted by computers. And, that is dumb. Motion capture will be limited to Science Fiction, Horror and maybe Historic movies. It is too expensive for anything else. And even then, a good actor is needed, because what Cameron did was to solve the problem of "uncanny valley" for CGI by perfectly translating facial expressions to animated character.
    Anyway, Avatar will join great Science Fiction movies that did not get an Oscar, like 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Blade Runner, ET, Star Wars… Lord of the Rings got one only because it was a trilogy.
    Hollywood likes Science Fiction/Horror/Fantasy only when it gets the studios money to finance their artistic projects.
    To conclude: The Hurt Locker will be forgotten just like Crash was.



  87. 87

    Actually, Cameron has no one to blame but himself for not winning more awards. I believe that the voters saw the video of him acting hatefully to the fan that simply approached him for an autograph. He came across as man so eaten up by his ego that he doesn't appreciate what he has along with a hefty sense of entitlement. I'm glad he got wacked by the voters. That's the only thing he deserved this time around.



  88. 88

    Wow, we went from talking about Avatar and Hurt Locker to people stating that Halle Berry embarrassed black people with her speech and Mo'Nique won because of politics. From some of the comments here it is very obvious most of you are reacting from feeling, not from truly looking at the movie itself. As a movie officianado, I look at performance, script and if what was presented did its job in storytelling. Visuals alone does not make a great movie. Halle made one of the best speaches at the academy awards. The best. It was heartfelt, true and appreciated. Denzel deserved his Oscar for Training day. It was a powerful performance. He made you hate him and feel sorry for him at the same time. Mo'Nique was the ost deserving of her award. Her performance was unmatched by any actress this year or the last few years. She deserved it and then some. That was a heart wrenching performing on Precious. Whoopi Goldberg in my opinion did not deserve an Oscar for Ghost. Her Color Purple and Claras Heart was a better perfromance than Ghost. Eddy Murphey was a perfect example of politics. He was supposed to win the Oscar for Dreamgirls. He lost out to a man who was onscreen for about 10, 15 minutes. Eddy lost because he pissed off the academy 20+ years ago. They did not forget. No, Hurt Locker, Up in The Air both deserved the nom and the win. Not all great movies have a 100 million dollar price tag.



  89. 89

    How can someone so smart make such dumb statements?



  90. 90

    the right person won. cameron is a jerk and you can see that in almost any interview hes done. Avatar was essentially pulled from 2 different already existing stories. Everything was CGI. Someone is trying to kiss a lot of ass. Boo james cameron.



  91. 91

    i havent seen the hurt locker so cant compare the two, but shes right in that it seems the in thing to snub financially successful films in favour of smaller ones, make of that what you will

    She's right. Nobody saw the Hurt Locker and just because Avatar had AMAZING visual effects doesn't mean the acting was bad. The acting in Avatar was top-notch, every fucking second of it and anyone who says otherwise has NO idea what they are talking about.

    Weaver has a point, but she can't be certain that this is why he didn't win. People REALLY liked his ex's film, and it's not as if her film didn't have great merit.



  94. 94

    It didn't win because it wasn't a good film. Visual effects? Yes!!! Acting? Hell no!! It got what it deserved..



  95. 95

    Hurt Locker sucked. A lot.



  96. 96

    Hurt Locker was a great film, and actually original. The Oscars do depend a lot on campaigning, but they do look at the quality of the cinematic work. Hurt Locker which is a drama, that relies on performance and plot, while Avatar was Pocahontas in 3D minus the musical numbers. Kathryn Bigelow completely deserved her Oscar, Weaver and Cameron are just sore losers.



  97. 97

    Pathetic. That's unbecoming of her.



  98. 98

    Avatar should have won. Absolutely. Hurt Locker - Although done well - was not the ground breaking movie that Avatar was.



  99. 99

    TOTALLY AGREE. I couldnt believe James Cameron didn't win..



  100. 100

    she is so OVER that movie was a sack of LAME
