‘AVATAR’ JOINS ‘E.T.’ AS ONLY SCI-FI FILMS TO WIN AT GOLDEN GLOBES
16:36 ~U 18.01.10
The sci-fi blockbuster – the most expensive movie ever made and on
track to become the highest-grossing film ever made – won the Golden
Globe tonight for best dramatic film and best director for James
Cameron, reports the Los Angeles Times.
"Avatar" was Cameron’s first film since 1997’s phenomenon "Titanic,"
which also won Globes in those same categories.
"It’s sure an exciting evening," Cameron said, looking at the crowd.
"This is the best job in the world."
He echoed the message of the film about a planet of nature-loving
blue people and remarked that "everything is connected, all human
beings to each other, and us to the Earth" and urged everyone to
"appreciate this miracle of the world we have right here."
"Avatar" shared the spotlight at the 67th annual ceremony with
"Up," which won trophies for score and animated film, and the small
independent drama "Crazy Heart," which won best actor in a drama for
Jeff Bridges and song.
