Kathryn Bigelow Makes History as First Woman Director to be Fake-Throttled by James Cameron

I don't know quite what to make of this shot of James Cameron meeting Kathryn Bigelow at the 2010 Oscars -- whether it was before or after Bigelow's Hurt Locker defeated Avatar for Best Director and Best Picture, or whether this was just an unfortunate angle on the ex-spouses' convivial Oscar-night embrace. At least two things are certain: If anyone is going to establish "strangratulation" as a new awards-season tradition, it'll be Cameron. And Harvey Weinstein is going to frame this. If he hasn't already. [Guardian via IW]

    This picture was taken before the ceremony started. It was in the first set of images posted on Getty Images while Waltz was winning for IB. They were probably saying "Holy Crap! Can't believe that sat us right next to each other."
