Perhaps you've heard of this one. Cameron's eco-epic became the all-time top box-office attraction in its first seven weeks of release, edging out his own supersmash Titanic. It created a visionary palette for moviemakers and moviegoers alike. Now Cameron wants just one more prize: Best Picture. It won't be easy. In the telltale Directors and Producers Guild awards, The Hurt Locker won the gold. Hollywood may also prefer a film that celebrates America's fighting men to one that casts many U.S. troops as criminal invaders. Because the Academy doesn't release the vote count, we won't know how close the race was. But from here, it looks neck and neck.
