Sigourney Weaver has something to say

Sigourney Weaver is still a little pissed that Avatar didn’t win the Oscar for best picture and now she knows why. It’s because James Cameron doesn’t have breasts. Obviously, Sigourney is wrong. That’s only part of the reason.

Outspoken “Avatar” star Weaver said she believed Cameron — who lost out to his ex-wife, “The Hurt Locker” director Kathryn Bigelow — didn’t win because the academy wanted to make history by naming its first ever female Best Director.

“Jim didn’t have breasts, and I think that was the reason,” Weaver told Brazilian news site Folha Online over the weekend. “He should have taken home that Oscar.”

In a stunning rebuke hinting at frustration in the “Avatar” camp — who applauded gracefully when “The Hurt Locker” also took the Best Picture Oscar — Weaver added, “In the past, ‘Avatar’ would have won because they [Oscar voters] 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.”

Oh yea. That’s it. It’s because James Cameron wasn’t a woman. Way to do a disservice to your gender. I guess it had nothing to do with the fact that Avatar, while having amazing 3D, was just an average movie. Whoopee, 9 foot tall blue cats running around in front of me! That was fantastic. For the first 5 minutes.
