Cameron Sinks Bigelow for Best Director




    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    James Cameron won Best Director for "Avatar," much to the shock of even himself.

    "I'm gonna make this quick, cuz I have to go to the bathroom something fierce," Cameron confessed. He then went on to say that he was unprepared for the honor, having assumed, like every other sighted person on Earth, that his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow would win.

    Unfortunately Cameron then thanked his actors in Na'vi, the language he created for the film -- seriously, what level of self-absorbed uber dorkery does it take to do such a thing?

    "Avatar" is a spectacle, to be sure. But "The Hurt Locker" was the most complete piece of film making in an admittedly down year. This thing between Bigelow and Cameron will be properly decided at the Oscars.
