James Cameron Talks 'Avatar' Oscar Chances - Starpulse

Avatar continues to sweep awards. It was the big winner at the Visual Effects Society Awards, which also honored Cameron with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Looking ahead to Sunday's Oscar race, Cameron thinks there are many cinematic milestones about to take palce.

The two best picture nominees that are 3D films, for some reason nobody's talking about that but it's a huge moment for the acceptance of 3D, Cameron said. It's not just relegated to a genre ghetto which it has been historically. Originally it was relegated to cheap horror films. Then in the last few years there have been some very fine animated films in 3D but now we're beyond that to talking about it as something that could be just equitably best picture. I think that's profound. I think it really is a watershed moment. Whether Up wins or whether Avatar wins or whether either wins, it doesn't matter because we're in that group for the first time.
