New York (ANI): James Cameron says Oscars have snubbed actors of
his sci-fi blockbuster Avatar because people often
'confuse' the movie's technology as being responsible for what they
have seen onscreen.
"People confuse what we have done with animation," the New York
Daily News quoted Cameron as telling The Hollywood Reporter. The
Avatar helmer added: "It's nothing like animation. The
creator here is the actor, not the unseen hand of an animator."
The film, which has received nine Academy Award nominations this

technology to bring alive the story of a futuristic conflict
between humans and the blue-skinned Na'vi tribe of Pandora.
However, Cameron believes Oscar voters didn't consider the
film's performances to be actual 'acting.' The flick"s producer Jon
Landau said: "We made a commitment to our actors that what they
would see up on the screen were their performances, not somebody
else's interpretation of what their performance might or might not
