James Cameron Skips Oscars 2023 Due to ‘Personal Reasons’ Despite Avatar: The Way of Water’s Best Picture Nomination

James Cameron is championing of the biggest film of 2022 Avatar: The Way of Water skipped the 2023 Oscars.

The 95th Academy awards were held on March 12, 2023, when the most prestigious awards were given to the greatest films of 2022. Despite being one of the most important film evenings of the year, some celebrities were shockingly absent from the show. Tom Cruise and James Cameron were the two most notable absences from the event.Cruise stars in Top Gun: Maverick, which received six Academy Award nominations this year, including one for Best Picture. Meanwhile, James Cameron directed Avatar: The Way of Water, which was nominated for Best Picture and three other Oscars.

On March 12, 2023, James Cameron chose not to attend the Oscars, despite the fact that his movie Avatar: The Way of Water was nominated for Best Picture.

According to the producer Jon Landau stated that 68-year-old Cameron was unable to attend due to “personal circumstances”. On Friday, March 10, he was seen attending CAA’s pre-Oscars celebration in Los Angeles.

Cameron was name-checked as an absentee nominee in Jimmy Kimmel‘s opening monologue at the top of ABC’s live broadcast. “You know, Tom [Cruise] and James Cameron didn’t show up tonight. The two guys who insisted we go to the theater didn’t come the theater,” the host, 55, said to the audience at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

Kimmel added that while Top Gun: Cruise wasn’t nominated for Best Actor, and Cameron wasn’t nominated for Best Director, but Maverick and the Avatar sequel are up for Best Picture. “I mean, how does the Academy not nominate the guy who directed Avatar? What do they think he is, a woman?” Kimmel quipped. The Best Director nominations were controversial as no women were included.

For his part, Cruise, 60, didn’t attend the Oscars because he is busy filming. He is currently overseas working on Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part II, Us Weekly confirmed on Sunday. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is expected to accept the Best Picture award if their film wins.

Avatar: After a 13-year hiatus, James Cameron’s 2010 blockbuster Avatar’s sequel, The Way of Water, debuted in theatres in December. The long-awaited installment brought back Zoe Saldaña and Sigourney Weaver — both of whom were in attendance at Sunday’s awards show — along with leading man Sam Worthington, and the flick garnered four Oscar nods. Best Production Design, Best Sound, and Best Visual Effects are all nominations for the science fiction blockbuster.

Of course, Best Picture is the most coveted and most competitive category of the night. Avatar: Way of the Water is up against All Quiet on the Western Front, The Banshees of Inisherin, Elvis, Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Fabelmans, Tár, Top Gun: Maverick, Triangle of Sadness and Women Talking for the night’s biggest accolade.

The first Avatar was nominated for three Academy Awards in 2010, but it didn’t take home any honours. Nonetheless, Cameron has won three Oscars on his own. At the 1998 ceremony, Titanic won Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Film Editing.

He was not nominated for best director

Cameron is nominated as a producer for “Avatar: The Way of Water”, the third-highest-profitable film of all time with $2.93 billion worldwide. He was not nominated for best director for his efforts on the sequel of Avatar. On the red carpet, his producing partner and fellow nominee Jon Landau informed The New York Times that his absence was due to “personal reasons.”

Ultimately, the true reason Cameron skipped the Academy Awards remains unclear. Producer of Avatar: The Way of Water Jon Landau only told Variety that Cameron couldn’t appear due to “personal reasons.” Despite his absence, he attended a meal with his fellow Oscar candidates on March 11, indicating he wasn’t against the awards show in general. Furthermore, Avatar: The Way of Water was nominated for the night’s prestigious award, making it uncertain Cameron missed only because he did not get a personal nomination. However, he has yet to reply publicly to queries regarding his absence at the Oscars.
