“There’s an evolution, and people are starting to not accept inferior forms, which is good. But it’s typical of Hollywood to get it wrong. We do a film that’s natively authored in 3D — it’s shot in 3D. So they assume from the success of that, that they can just turn movies into 3D. In 8 weeks. You know, just throw a switch on 3D and that’s gonna work somehow. If you wanna make a movie in 3D, MAKE the movie in 3D. It should be a filmmaker-driven process and not a studio-driven process.”
Of course, that’s nothing that me and everyone outside of the studio-exec-coke-party circuit hasn’t already been saying for months. But Cameron has billions of dollars so he gets to do whatever he wants, like tell the truth, or have a lady’s hairstyle, and no one can say sh-t. Sadly, he then had to go and ruin it by saying that he wants Kathryn Bigelow to win the Best Director Oscar — because he has too many already.
James Cameron: I respect the whole institution of the Academy Awards because it’s the pinnacle of achievement in my chosen profession. But I don’t really need another one. But to be honored – you know, to have the team honored and for their accomplishment, that would mean so much to them. And I think that would be the fantasy outcome in all of this.
Charlie Rose: So you’re saying to the voters, please take a look at my team and go for us as Best Picture. But –
James Cameron: Yeah, and I –
Charlie Rose: — go for Kathryn Bigelow for Best Director.
James Cameron: I mean, all I can say is that that would make me very happy if that – you know, I don’t want to try to get –
Charlie Rose: Happier than if it was Best Director for James Cameron?
James Cameron: Honestly, yes. [video over at DeadlineHollywood]
Yes, truly, I don’t need another Oscar. It’d just get lost among all the other ones and my collection of gold bars that I use to throw at my harem of expensive Ukranian prostitutes. And that way if my ex-wife wins, I can say “Well, I did sort of give it to you…” and make dismissive wank motions at her during her acceptance speech. That’s right, fags, king of the world and don’t you forget it.
