It's clear from this Charlie Rose interview that James Cameron has been coached on not seeming like a jackass — emphasizing how much his team deserves Best Picture, suggesting Best Director for Kathryn Bigelow. Well, it sort of worked... [DHD]
I know a lot of people around here hate him, but he was asked a direct question about how he'd feel if Avatar got best picture and Bigelow got best director. He actually didn't even say much about her, it seemed like he was saying he didn't need any more Oscars regardless of his competition, but his team worked hard and he'd like them to be rewarded for that. How would you prefer he answer?
