James Cameron doesn't WANT an Oscar for Avatar

The King of the World says he doesn't need another crown.

"I have already got an Oscar," said Cameron in an interview with Charlie Rose. "I've got a couple of them, you know."

Though he still hopes Avatar will win for Best Picture as a thank-you to his team, he believes the Best Director trophy should go to his ex-wife, Kathryn Bigelow, who directed The Hurt Locker.

"That would be my fantasy outcome, absolutely," said Cameron.

Says deadline.com's Nikki Finke, "I can't tell if this brazen campaigning hurts or helps his Oscar chances."
