The 82nd Annual Academy Awards is still running at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles and more movies add statuettes to their respective shelves. "Avatar" and "Up", which have already got their first wins for Best Art Direction category and Best Animated Film category respectively, add one gong each.

The Sam Worthington-starring sci-fi collects its second award for Best Achievement in Cinematography, aiding Mauro Fiore to get his first Oscars win from his first nomination too. "First of all, I want to thank the Academy for this unbelievable honor. It's a pleasure to be here," he says after receiving the prize from Sandra Bullock.

Later, "Avatar" actor Worthington, joined by Jennifer Lopez, show up at the stage to announce Best Original Score and the winner goes to Michael Giacchino for his work in "Up". "It's not a waste of time," he tells kids who want to be creative but lack a support system.

More winners are going to be unveiled at the 2010 Oscars and "Avatar" as well as "Up" are up against each other for Best Picture award. To get the coveted prize, they will compete with eight other nominees, including "The Blind Side", "The Hurt Locker", "Inglourious Basterds" and "Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire".
