Cameron joins cast for home team event
Even before the Globes wrapped, the Fox party at Craft was lively with lots of cast and crew members from nominated shows including “Glee,” “Modern Family,” “House” and “Damages.” The pint-sized thesps from “Modern Family” circulated like party pros. Guests cheered enthusiastically for “Glee’s” win, and were surprised and happy when Jeff Bridges won for Fox Searchlight pic “Crazy Heart.”
The Craft crowd really went bonkers when James Cameron and then “Avatar” raked in the Globes for the home team. “Avatar’s” win was “really gratifying,” said Tom Rothman.
Arriving late to face a throng of well-wishers were “Avatar’s” Cameron, producer Jon Landau, stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver, joining castmates C.C.H. Pounder and Steven Lang.
Cameron called his directing kudo “bittersweet.” “I would have been ecstatic if Kathryn (Bigelow) had won as best director,” he said. “Because we need a female director to win and she deserves the recognition.”
Weaver, after introducing Cameron to Neil Patrick Harris, said, “I love being part of a movie that’s being discovered by the audience all over the globe.”
