James Cameron Doesn't Mind If Sacha Baron Cohen Spoofs 'Avatar' at Oscars

March 05, 2010 03:03:58 GMT


James Cameron has given Sacha Baron Cohen the green light to mock his blockbuster "Avatar" at the upcoming Oscars - despite Academy Award organizers scrapping the sketch over fears it would offend the director. Cohen was initially the favorite to host the annual bash on March 7, but bosses feared he would be too risque for American audiences, and opted for Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin instead.

But producers were keen for Cohen to bring some humor to the event, and asked him to present an award to one of the night's winners. However, after Oscar producers saw the ideas for his sketch, which reportedly included the comic dressing as a blue-skinned female "Avatar" creature who proclaims she is pregnant with Cameron's child, the skit was axed to save the director from embarrassment.

March 05, 2010 03:02:34 GMT


Fans of "Smallville" can sigh a breath of relief now that The CW has officially announced the show gets another season. The network previously renewed some of its primetime shows but delayed the verdict on "Smallville". However, sources said the execs were leaning towards renewal since the show has been performing well rating-wise.

The momentous tenth season will begin in Fall this year. It is still unclear whether all the regular cast will be back. Last year, Allison Mack confirmed in an interview that there would be a season 10 where Tom Welling has been signed to. She said, "Tom has signed for season 9 and for a season 10, so the show will go until season 10. I will be completed with my contract next year, and I am looking for new and exciting ways to carry out my character's exit."
