"Jim didn't have breasts, and I think that was the reason," Weaver told Brazilian news site Folha Online. "He should have taken home that Oscar." Weaver added, "In the past, 'Avatar' would have won because they [Oscar voters] loved to hand out awards to big productions, like Ben-Hur." Today it's fashionable to give the Oscar to a small movie that nobody saw."
'Avatar' grossed 743.7 million dollars in the United States and 2.7 billion dollars worldwide, while "The Hurt Locker" raked in 16 million dollars in the US and just more than 40 million dollars worldwide, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.
