At least one person wouldn't mind an Avatar spoof at the Academy Awards this Sunday.
The Oscar-nominated director told me this exclusively tonight at the Global Green party at Avalon. Cameron said he wasn't aware that a proposed Avatar sketch involving Ben Stiller and Sacha Baron Cohen had been cut from the show, presumably to avoid upsetting the director.
"I don't know anything about that...I don't produce the Oscars. If they want to poke fun at Avatar Sunday, that's OK by me," said Cameron, "I'm sure we'll laugh."
As far as he's concerned, he told me, jokes are just another element of Hollywood's big night. And he's fine with it.
"The Oscars are a celebration of movies...even the gaffes and out-of-bounds stuff are all part of the fun."
So he's good with it. Sacha, are you still willing?
