James Cameron to receive Harold Lloyd 3D kudo

Awards to be held Feb. 9

The Intl. 3D Society has named James Cameron the recipient of its inaugural Harold Lloyd kudo.

“James Cameron has embodied Harold Lloyd’s vision and passion for dazzling audiences across the globe,” said Suzanne Lloyd, the thesp’s granddaughter and chair of Harold Lloyd Entertainment, “With ‘Avatar’ and his commitment to 3D storytelling, it is appropriate that he is the first recipient of this most prestigious annual award.”

Harold Lloyd was an early advocate of utilizing 3D technology in the 1920s and recipients of the award will be chosen for their outstanding achievement in 3D filmmaking and advocacy of 3D.

“Avatar” garnered seven of the International 3D Society’s Lumiere Awards last year, including wins in the live-action feature, stereography and visual effects categories.

Cameron will receive the kudo Feb. 9 at the 2nd Annual Creative Arts Awards at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood. The society will record and telecast the ceremony in 3D for part of a two-hour special on 3net.
