Avatar Loser didn’t have breasts

Sigourney Weaver doesn’t take Avatar losing the Oscar for Best Picture well at all.

Apparently, Weaver was quoted as saying that the high and mighty James Cameron didn’t win the Oscar because “he didn’t have breasts.”

“Jim didn’t have breasts, and I think that was the reason.”

She goes on to slam the Academy by saying “In the past, ‘Avatar’ would have won because they 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.”

The statement was made in Brazil while Cameron and Weaver were promoting their 3-d craptacular movie.

Wow Weaver. Sore Loser Much?

Guess it had nothing to do with the fact that the movie , outside of special effects, was a terrible display of story-telling.

Admittedly, I haven’t seen Hurt Locker yet to compare.  It’s currently waiting for me at my house from Netflix but it’s a little disappointing to, at the very least, hear Weaver bashing another successful woman in Hollywood.  She was married to Cameron.  An oscar is the least we can give her.

And, yes, Avatar did make 1.84 billion worldwide (in comparison to The Hurt Locker’s $40,016,144 worldwide gross) making it the highest grossing film of all time but that just means a lot of people went to see it.  It doesn’t mean they all liked it.
