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