Directoral Debate

With the announcement of the Director’s Guild Awards last night we have a definitive race for best director at the Oscars.  Kathryn Bigelow became the first female director to win the big prize last night for her film, The Hurt Locker.  Bigelow is the ex-wife of other potential front runner, James Cameron.  His monster of a film, Avatar, has been sweeping technical awards and setting records in the box office.  As far as an awards count,  Cameron won at the Golden globes, but Bigelow has won at the DGA and the Critics Choice.

Cameron was actually instrumental in convincing Bigelow to shoot The Hurt Locker.  Little did he know that she can be the other person to knock down Avatar.  Although the nominations are not even out yet for the Oscars,  the pressure is building and the race is heating up
