head 'battle of the exes' at Golden Globe awards In the often incestuous and competitive world of Hollywood, it is not unusual for former couples to vie for acclaim.

But at the Golden Globes awards ceremony, two ex spouses will go head to head in an unprecedented battle for the top prizes. Avatar, the futuristic 3D blockbuster that is the second biggest grossing film in history, was directed by James Cameron while his one time wife Kathryn Bigelow had the same role with the gritty low budget Iraq war film The Hurt Locker. The two, who remain friendly, have both been nominated for Best Director and their films for Best Picture at the ceremony hosted by comedian Ricky Gervais. Many pundits believe they could share the top two awards, although Up in the Air starring George Clooney also has strong backing. Sunday night's showdown seems certain to be a precursor for a similar "battle of the exes" at the Oscars in early March. And there is growing Hollywood buzz that Bigelow website pandora will be the first woman in the history of the Academy Awards to win the nod for Best Director. "A contest where former husband and wife are the frontrunners for the two big awards certainly adds some spice to the event," said Steve Pond, a long time Hollywood observer pandora charms sale online who covers the awards business for The Wrap website. "It's Hollywood and people love intrigue and gossip. The Globes can be pretty difficult to predict, but I think we could very easily see them share the awards here or in the Oscars." If Bigelow does triumph, expect Cameron, who has a slew of awards to his name, to be the first to praise her. I've known that she's a genius filmmaker for a long time." Bigelow was Cameron's third wife for just two years, from 1989 to 1991 and the 55 year old director is now on to spouse number five, Suzy Amis, an actress whom he met when she appeared in his last epic, Titanic. Bigelow, 58 by contrast has been married just once and so cordial was their split that he helped her make two subsequent films. Asked about his colourful domestic track record, Cameron said recently: "I've been divorced more times than I've been nominated [for the Globes]. I don't really know which one is more awkward." The Hurt Locker an unflinching portrayal of a US bomb disposal unit in Baghdad in 2004 represents a remarkable comeback for Bigelow. After her last film flopped at the box office in 2000, it was seven years before she was given the chance to direct again. And when that opportunity came around, she had to fight to secure even the bare bones budget to make the film. It has since taken just $16 million but won a clutch of critics' awards. The financial contrast with Avatar could not be greater. Cameron lavished up to $500 million to produce the film, using innovative 3D technology he developed, but it has already earned nearly $1.5 billion worldwide. The only movie that has grossed more is Titanic. In an added twist to their showdown, it is not just that Cameron and pandora uk delivery Bigelow are facing off for the same prize, but also that their films offer two radically different takes on the same topic Iraq. "What puts them in the same category, isn't so much that they were once a couple, but that they have made two of the best films of the year," said Sasha Stone, who runs the Awards Daily website. "No matter how you slice it, it feels like these two films, and these two directors, are hopelessly linked. "It's good for Bigelow that she comes into the race very much separate from Cameron, and becomes the first woman with a viable chance to win Best Picture in the 82 year history of the Oscars. Had she been married to Cameron now, no one would be able to see her as anything but his wife. "It's unprecedented for a former husband and wife to be in competition for Best Picture or Best Director. But then again, it is unprecedented for a woman to be seriously considered at all." The Hurt Locker has managed to be the first successful film about the Iraq war, helped by its studied determination not to take sides. In Avatar by contrast, Mr Cameron makes no apology for an overtly political message that has earned the wrath of conservative critics who have condemned the film as anti American, anti military, anti capitalist and naively pro environmentalist. The film's plot portrays the struggle of the 10ft tall blue Na'vi inhabitants of the planet Pandora to resist greed fuelled mineral exploitation by humans backed by trigger happy former US marines turned mercenaries strikingly reminiscent of the Blackwater private military contractors who earned notoriety in Iraq. The noble Na'vi share an intimate bond with nature and ultimately manage to fend off the military might of the invaders with their ingenuity, their bows and arrows and the help of some ferocious friends in the jungle and the skies. The same merciless human foes who spectacularly destroy the Na'vi home, the Tree of Souls in an attack that echoes the destruction of the Twin Towers on Sept 11, 2001, and the "shock and awe" onslaught in Baghdad in 2003 are later shown being mown down in glorious 3 D technicolour. The allegorical references from the fate of American Indians to Iraq are not hard to spot. In the conservative Weekly Standard, commentator John Podhoretz observes that the audience is asked "to root for the defeat of American soldiers at the hands of an insurgency". And John Nolte, editor of Big Hollywood, a website established to counter the traditional liberal bent of Hollywood, has lambasted the film's crude politics and boilerplate plot. But at a private industry screening organised by The Wrap last week, Cameron acknowledged he had made a political film and bluntly rejected his conservative critics. "I've heard people say this film is un American, while part of being an American is having the freedom to have dissenting ideas," he said. "This movie reflects that we are living through war. There are boots on the ground, troops who I personally believe were sent there under false pretences, so I hope this will be part of opening our eyes." The duelling views of Avatar went international last week. Left wing Bolivian president Evo Morales took time off from promoting his country's coca production to praise the film for its call to save the environment from exploitation. But Vatican media dismissed Avatar as simplistic, bland and sappy. pandora charms for sale More significantly, its newspaper and radio station criticised the film for flirting with the idea that worship of nature can replace religion a notion against which the Pope has warned. It "gets bogged down by a spiritualism linked to the worship of nature", wrote L'Osservatore.

Vatican Radio took up the theme, saying the film "cleverly winks at all those pseudo doctrines that turn ecology into the religion of the millennium. Nature is no longer a creation to defend, but a divinity to worship.".
