Sigourney Weaver late to the party, trash talks Hurt Locker's Oscar win

04.13.2010

I know that the AVATAR vs. HURT LOCKER Oscar debate is over and done with, but someone forgot to tell Sigourney Weaver, which is why we're hearing about this again. And I know you guys are always up for a little rehashed debate.

But the real reason I’m posting it is for this quote, where Weaver assesses why exactly Cameron didn’t pull best director.

"Jim didn't have breasts, and I think that was the reason…He should have taken home that Oscar."

Well that’s a…bold statement. If that was coming from Sam Worthington, I think we’d be hearing a hell of a lot more about this, but you know, double standards and all that. She continues:

"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."

Is Weaver right about all this, even if she’s saying it in a rather dickish fashion? I’ve always been in the camp that Cameron deserved best director, and HURT LOCKER Best Picture. As for the boobs playing into it? I’ll leave that for you guys to discuss.

Extra Tidbit: I think they’re on good terms, but really, is there a historical example of an ex-wife one-upping an ex-husband more than this?

They both were pretty overrated in my opinion...but nowhere nearly as overrated as the Oscars.

I like Sigourney Weaver but it makes me upset she would say this. Cameron was actually happy for Kathryn and even at the Golden Globes he said he thought she would win. She needs to relax. Avatar got the awards they deserved and thats that. Also just like Rocknblues81 said, lots of popular films won the award in the last couple decades. If JC is fine with it then so should she.

Wow. Lot's of stupidity in here.

Hollywood only rewards movies that didn't make a lot of money???

Gladiator
Lord of the Rings
Crash
The Departed
Titanic
Braveheart
Forrest Gump
Dances With Wolves

Even No Country for Old Men made over 100 million dollars.

I'm tired of hearing people say that box office numbers do not equal quality because that is bullshit. The numbers can actually tell a lot about a film.

Look at movies like New Moon & Transformers 2; these movies lost 60%-70% of their audience from opening weekend to 2nd weekend. They may have opened so huge that they ended with big numbers (this is due to trailers & marketing that effectively bring in its target audience), but had they been good movies they should have made far more money

Avatar on the other hand only lost 1.8% of its audience from opening weekend to the 2nd weekend. That is something that only happens from the power of great word of mouth (I would say WOM this powerful is indication of Best Picture material).

This kind of word of mouth rarely happens, and only happens to universally loved movies like the original Star Wars trilogy, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., etc...

Good on her for speaking her mind instead of typical sycophantic hollywood BS. And Yes I agree with her.
No one wants to see The Hurt Locker, even after its oscar wins it still made bugger all. I know box office don't equal good movie, but surely it would at least gain some interest, but it didn't. Bottom line people didn't much care for it. Next year people will be wondering, "umm, what won last year? Oh The Hurt Locker, that's right, never saw it..."
I do belive the Academy desperately

I do belive the Academy desperately wanted Hurt Locker to win, for many reasons. Avatar got screwed, not just for Director and Picture, but also quite a few techincal awards, like the two sound oscars. While I've never liked the Oscars too much, this year did piss me off a fair bit, and lost most of my respect.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.

I agree

Jim or Tarintino deserved the best director oscar WAYYYYY more than she did dude.
she did a gREAT job, but the being a women thing made her win.
nobody worked harder as a director than James Cameron. HOW CAN YOU NOT GIVE HIM BEST DIRECTOR WHEN HIS MOVIE JUST MADE ALMOST 3 FUCKING BILLION DOLLARS?! HE WORKED ON IT FOR LIKE 4 YEARS NON-STOP!!!!
And nobody did a better job constructing a wild movie like Tarintino did!! He directed that film MASTERFULLY, the story and the way it was filmed in

I love the joblo community, you guys know film and what a good movie is all about! But why is everyone agreeing with sigourney!? I do think avatar was the most entertaining movie of the year, but it was far from art. The oscars, as political and convoluted as it has become, is about artistic achievement and Bigelow deserved the award for provoking serious thought, and showing psychological tension through her direction. She did something extremely difficult in being able show and depict mental

Ten years from now no one will give two shits about a generic war film. Avatar on the other hand will still be a beloved film worldwide, one of those films which others will be measured up to (much like A New Hope & Raiders).

While I mostly agree with you, don't underestimate the resonance of Raiders and A New Hope nor overplay the significance of Avatar. Avatar will be important because of its technological advancements, not because of its great story or character development. Important? Yes. "Beloved" Ehhh...

The only reason Avatar got any acclaim was it's world and special effects. The story was lame, repeated Dances with Wolves. Cameron was a great PRODUCER on the film, creating a fantastic world, but that's not what a director does. A director guys the camera and actors. Kathryn did an excellent job of using the camera to create excellent tension. It was also well agreed that she did one of the best jobs of any film capturing the Iraq war. The acting was also superior to that of Avatar, which was

It took me a while to realize how overrated Avatar really is, but it's true. The film is highly overrated.

Avatar lost because while it was visually great it had no soul to it. I would think that someone like Sigourney Weaver would be above this kind of talk.

I agree with her, and that's why I never gave two shits about the Oscars.

The entire world made very clear which movie they preferred. All of these awards and critical discussions are really just meaningless ways for people to pat themselves on the back.

saw avatar twice and not gonna lie after the first time i was one of the people hyping it to everyone but after the second when i was able to actually examine it without getting lost in the amazing cg, alot of the acting is barely par and the story/plot is anything but original. idk its a good movie, but honestly i thought district 9 was a much better film in that genre. I also loves the hurtlocker so no complaint on the outcome for me.

The Oscars have a history of picking unlikely winners. The reasons behind such decisions have jackshit to do with the art of movie-making. "Let's make sure an African-American gets at least one award because we've ignored them for so long everyone thinks we're racists"... "Time to finally give an Oscar to a female director or the feminists will call us names"... etc. Some of the winners over the past years were simply... ridiculous. I loved both Avatar & THL and somehow the Oscars don't matter

I loved both Avatar & THL and somehow the Oscars don't matter that much to me. They never did. I didn't begin to appreciate a movie or a person because they gave it/him/her a nekkid golden dude. Avatar & THL are 2 very different, but equally excellent movies (though I gotta admit that Avatar is a much greater, possibly THE greatest, achievement in cinematic history), and in a few years no one's gonna remember the 2010 Oscars anyway.

Oscars gotta eat...

Like anything that wants to survive you need money. The Oscars have always had politics behind it. Bigalow was its 'politics' this year: first female best director. That's why she won. I watched THL and it really did not do anything for me; nice directing yeah but...Cameron invented new shit and added to the movie experience; that right there should have won. People tuned in so they could see the 'first female director'. that's my thoughts on it.

She's absolutely right about why The Hurt Locker won, but she's wrong in thinking Cameron should have won for Avatar. It would have been the worst movie of 2009 if Transformers 2 had come out another year, so Cameron will have to settle for second-place just this once. It was an abomination of a movie and it didn't deserve to win shit

How About Neither

While I'm fine with Bigelow's win, Cameron certainly didn't deserve it. God damn, Avatar is blown way out of proportion and there wasn't anything special in that movie outside of special effects.

If we want to argue who should have won other than Bigelow, I put my vote to Tarantino, who kicked some serious ass with Inglourious Basterds. But that's just me.

She is right 100%. The Oscars are deeply flawed, and try way to hard to please the pretentious media mongers.

Most films that win Oscars are usually forgotten the very next year.

Look at what 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' lost to at the Oscars. It's laughable. Spielberg lost best director to Warren Beatty for the movie 'Reds'. Fucking REDS! Really? Was that really a better directed movie than Raiders? Fuck no. Though, at the time the pretentious film crowd swore it was. Why? Because it is

James Cameron

alright. The Hurt Locker was a great film and should defiantly have gotten best picture, but there is no way in hell the Kathryn Bigalow deserved the best director award. This is really late but come on. NO director in this world can take a 12 year hiatus and break his own record. The script of Avatar wasn't perfect but at least James Cameron writes his own films and didn't see the need to re write the script after having it for 15 years. He doesn't have to try to make a good movie, it just

Avatar Vs. Hurt Locker

Well I have to say i liked both Movies but for obvious reasons Avatar deserves best Picture and Best Director. There's no way What's her Face put in more time and energy into Hurt Locker then Cameron into Avatar, and the Results show for themselves (How many billions of $$$ did Avatar make Worldwide again?). I don't want to take anything away from Hurt Locker, it's a great movie, and definitely worth a watch. If Sigourney Weaver was in Hurt Locker instead of Avatar, she'd be talking shit about

But she does make a point about the Oscars choosing what's "fashionable" just cause they like to. But when you look at which movie i'm gonna buy when it comes on DVD it'll be Avatar. Owning Hurt locker would simply be "fashionable" and wouldn't get much playing time in my house.

Avatar was deeply flawed

Even the biggest Avatar defenders didn't give a shit about the environmental message.

I agree that HL wasn't the greatest "Best Film" ever but Avatar was nowhere good enough to complain about his loss.

Canto already pointed out how stupid her first point is...

But I'm more pissed about the second thing she said (a point that other people have stupidly made). In general, Oscar do not give the 'Best Film' award to small films, The Hurt Locker is officially the 'smallest' film to win the award so far - because it's an odd case.

Think about it Sigourney, did only a couple of people go and see Titanic and Lord of the Rings? Fucking idiot.

I have to agree first of all on the tits part. When it comes to paying attention, which do you think most guys and even some women are gonna pay more attention to when it comes to deciding which they like the best? A nice rack or a few special effects. Tits beat cameron hands down. No debating that.

When it comes to paying attention, which do you think most guys and even some women are gonna pay more attention to when it comes to deciding which they like the best? A nice rack or a few special effects. Tits beat cameron hands down. No debating that. As for smaller movies, that also should be pretty obvious cause these days you usually find 10 times more art house movies nominated than any actual good movies. Thats why so many people feel hollywood is so out of touch with the public. They favor the art house crap while the ones that make the millions get ignored. Its just how things are.

So all 'art films' are crap, films should only be made to make money.

Good point there.

Ahh who needs another Gold statue taking up valueable space anyways.

Noct as for waiting a year to see the Hurt Locker, just watch it for what it is. Simply A movie nothing more nothing less.

I guess I see where she's coming from. and I, personally, didn't like either Avatar OR The Hurt Locker, BUT...

The whole thing about oscars going to small movies no one saw is moot because just look at the movies that have won best picture in years past. Lord of the Rings, Gladiator, Million Dollar Baby, Titanic.

The mere fact that Avatar was even nominated for best picture should in itself be blasphemy. It was a ridiculous film. It reminds me of the imaginationland episode of south park

Not that this will ever be settled

This has been regurgitated several times but nonetheless: Avatar is a good movie with groundbreaking effects. An effective critic could put aside the effects and see that the script was horrible, the ending was predictable, and it really was too long. Effects should play a very small part in the variables for defining the best picture of the year. I also think a more relevant variable for best picture is having actors in it and CGI does not count - it's more like voices in an animated film.

10 nominations

Since we're going back to the Oscar debate...

The thing that bothers me most is that there were ten movies nominated, and yet, it seems like every year they only ever go on about two movies at a time. I haven't seen the Hurt Locker yet, so I can't judge it, but I did see quite a few of the other nominees and they were all quite stellar for one reason or another. My two favourite nominees were never contenders.

My two favourite nominees were never contenders.

I think Sigourney missed the point, as we're all very able to point out. But I think even worse than that, the Oscars miss the point. It is all quite political it seems. I think Hurt Locker won because here was a good chance to give an Oscar to a deserving female. There were probably better movies, we all have our choices, as does Ms. Weaver, but at the end of the day Awards aren't awarded for excellence but rather climate. Crash vs. Brokeback will always be the best example of that. Cameron said it himself at some point. It would be better for Hurt Locker to win than Avatar. While he would love Avatar to win for his people, on the political and personal level, Cameron just didn't need it.

Sorry for going on so long, I just don't know why we have to get worked up over this kind of stuff. It really doesn't matter. We like what we like and the Oscars are just trying to fit in with the rest of Reality T.V. now. Will your favourite get voted out or take the loot?

To make this even longer, on a side note, I'll have to wait a few years to watch Hurt Locker with a clear mind because I know if I watch it now with all this hooplah I'll likely not enjoy it as much as I could/should. The Oscar buzz can be negative even for winners. Instead I'll go rewatch the movies with or without awards, that I enjoyed this year.

Cameron

Considering the army of people Cameron led from concept artists to technicians to production to his 3D team to VFX facilities, I'd say he definitely should have won.

Hurt Locker, to me, was simply a stronger film.

Most people don't realize that Cameron convinced Bigelow to make THL as she was skeptical about it. So to be honest, you should be kissing his ass for either film. He remained calm and cool throughout which I can't say the same for a certain THL producer.

Hurt Locker was new and fresh? You're kidding right?

A story of a bunch of soldiers in Iraq and their psychological trauma from dangerous/boring events. There isn't much originality there. Just add bombs, that's it. JARHEAD did a far better job and received jack-shit.

THL even had a completely cliched ending where the lead soldier goes home, can't adapt to normal life and goes back with a big smile on his face.

I agree with her unfortunately...

The hand-out of the BEST PICTURE Oscar has become flawed and however debatable, she's right that pretty much all movies that receive Best Picture are ones that almost nobody saw.

The Best Picture winner should be a film that was seen and loved all across the world and AVATAR was that film. Or INGLORIOUS BASTERDS. Or DISTRICT 9.

THE HURT LOCKER was a great film, no question about it. Did it deserve BEST PICTURE...absolutely not. Did Kathryn deserve BEST DIRECTOR...absolutely not. I say

THE HURT LOCKER was a great film, no question about it. Did it deserve BEST PICTURE...absolutely not. Did Kathryn deserve BEST DIRECTOR...absolutely not. I say this because THL has been done 1,000 times over between BLACK HAWK DOWN, JARHEAD, THREE KINGS, etc. Let's be honest here.

AVATAR on the other hand was revolutionary in its execution, it opened a doorway to a new realm of film-making and ways of being creative. It was a fun and exciting story (I don't care what any of you haters say) and the general worldwide movie audiences LOVED IT!. For his effort, Cameron deserved BEST DIRECTOR 100% even if AVATAR didn't win BEST PICTURE.

The Academy was just so desperate to look "hip and cool" that they had to award it to Kathryn. The voters and Academy were forced into a corner by the media cause if Cameron had one, everyone would cry out that he payed for his Oscar, the Academy is sexist, etc.

Overall statement, AVATAR was not given the credit it deserved and THL received too much.

Sigs is mostly right on with the first comment. The Academy was jonesing to give a Best Director award to a woman so they can show how diverse they are. Since the media was busy hyping THL as some great movie (it really wasn't), they saw their chance.

The second quote is debatable. The kinds of movies that garner awards each year tends to fluctuate. Yes, smaller movies like American Beauty and Million Dollar Baby have won the prize, but in the same timespan, so have Gladiator, The

Of course, this is all secondary to the main point: The real winner that night should have been Inglourious Basterds.

While how she said it, is a bit too harsh and coming off as poor sportsmanship, she does have a point.

'The Hurt Locker' was an extremely well made movie, (most) everyone had seen before in terms of story and theme. Besides, if Bigelow was to win it should have been for either 'Near Dark' or 'Strange Days'. Here, unlike most of her work, she made a very typical film very well.

'Avatar', say what you will about it, but it was innovative and it changed the way people will be making movies

I don't agree with the "boobs" comment, but I don't think The Hurt Locker should have swept as many categories as it did. It was a great movie, but to me(and A LOT of people), Inglourious Basterds was better. I agree that the academy likes to hand out Oscars to small productions though. Maybe for "street cred", I guess.

There are a lot of great small independent movies out there that deserve the success that some of these big budget movies are getting.

Avatar deserving the Oscar is debatable, but she is right about it being fashionable to hand the Oscar to small independent films. This kind of bullshit is why The Dark Knight wasn't even nominated last year when it should have won.

Smaller independent films are given much more leniency by critics, and are held in much higher regard than big studio films.

This is due to the idea that big and/or studio films = mainstream, and pretentious critics & artists want to be anything but

She use to be a respectful actress that could recognize a good film, but now she's implying Avatar deserved Best Director because it was a larger production and more people saw it? If the Oscars were based on such standards then The Dark Knight would have won last year.

I always knew it was either gonna be Bigelow for best director, or maybe Lee Daniels. You don't hype stuff like that these days without it turning out to be a little bit true. I could've seen Avatar win Best Picture, but when the lead contender is already a winner and "King of the World," and the Academy has the opportunity to make history by giving the award to someone else, that's what's gonna happen usually. The real question, if Katherine Bigelow wasn't Cameron's ex, would she still have

I could've seen Avatar win Best Picture, but when the lead contender is already a winner and "King of the World," and the Academy has the opportunity to make history by giving the award to someone else, that's what's gonna happen usually. The real question, if Katherine Bigelow wasn't Cameron's ex, would she still have had enough clout to win?

Fuck Her.

I just lost all respect for her. This is such a bitch thing for anyone to say. Bigelow deserved to win Best Director over Cameron. Both directors are amazing and The Hurt Locker was a great movie and Im sure Avatar was too. How bout being a big person and accepting your loss. If everyone talked liked this after the oscars, it would be war in Hollywood. Fuck You Weaver, Alien and Ghostbusters are the only reason why you are famous. Fuckin Bitch.

Pardon the swearing but...

Shut the fuck up, Sigourney.

You're too little too late, and now your comments are falling on deaf ears.

The better movie won, get over it and recede in to the night for another few years to re-appear in another bloated overblown blockbuster okay, Granny?

She just sounds bitter. Based on what she said about the Oscars just giving the Oscar to big production movies, it doesn't mean Avatar deserved the Oscar anymore. She's just saying it would've won because it was a big production film, not because of its merit.

The Hurt Locker deserved it over Avatar. If I were deciding, Inglorious Basterds would've gotten it for 2010, I've disliked Tarantino since Jackie Brown but this was a comeback to me for him.
