While promoting Avatar in Brazil over the weekend, Sigourney explained her theory to Folha Online, “Jim didn’t have breasts, and I think that was the reason. He should have taken home that Oscar. In the past, ‘Avatar’ would have won because they [Oscar voters] loved to hand out awards to big productions, like ‘Ben-Hur.’ Today it’s fashionable to give the Oscar to a small movie that nobody saw.”
Oh just shut up, Sigourney Weaver. Between this and that weird completely sincere Saturday Night Live monologue about how amazing it was to be back in the building (Rockefeller Center) that your father used to OWN (neat!), you are really starting to distinguish yourself as a NIGHTMARE. I’m not saying that all women have to support Kathryn Bigelow’s Oscar win for Best Director. Women are free to have their own independent opinions and get driver’s licenses and everything now. But Sigourney’s argument doesn’t even make sense. Did James Cameron lose the Oscar because he didn’t have breasts, or because the Academy likes to award small movies that nobody saw? Because those are TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS.
Just relax and let your mind go blank, Sigourney Weaver, it shouldn’t be hard for you. Get it? Ugh, SIgourney Weaver probably doesn’t even get it.
