James Cameron, the director of Avatar lost the game of Oscar to his ex wife Kathryn Bigelow. Almost 12 years back, James Cameron declared him the King of the World after winning the Oscar for Titanic as best film.
James Cameron this year did not left the Oscars empty handed as well because his movie “Avatar” won more than one Oscar awards “Best Art Direction”, “Best Cinematography” and Best Virtual Effects, however the Director himself was unable to secure an Oscar for his movie.
This year the Best Movie of the year Oscar award has been won by James Cameron’s ex wife Kathryn Bigelow for her film The Hurt Locker.
This is year he wasn’t too far behind winning the best film award for the expensive and hit movie Avatar. James Cameron won the Golden Globe award for the 3D blockbuster movie Avatar last year but last night wasn’t great for Avatar or James Cameron. It was largely expected that Avatar will be the movie to win the 82nd Academy Awards but it never happened.
