While he went on to claim that he had no hard feelings over getting bested at this years Academy Awards, his assurances were somewhat less than convincing:
“It was David and Goliath. Goliath had made more than a couple of billion dollars and ‘The Hurt Locker’ had made about what it cost to shoot, about $15 million. The Academy always likes to be the great equalizer. But I don’t begrudge her any of that. I couldn’t think of a better outcome for our lives. I got my Oscar. She got her Oscar.”
While the many outcomes to this years Oscars are indeed open to debate (Up In The Air was robbed of Best Film in my book), the worthiness of Kathryn Bigelow’s offering can be in no way tied to the number of dimensions it was presented in.
If you wish to know Cameron’s opinion regarding Andrew Garfield’s casting as Spider-man, the potential digimation of the director’s Terminator franchise or the progress of Del Toro’s At The Mountains of Madness (which he is producing), I doubt you will have to wait long at all.
