Golden Globes 2023: Avatar director James Cameron hits red carpet with Titanic star Suzy Amis

Golden Globes 2023: Avatar director James Cameron hits red carpet with Titanic star Suzy Amis after finally finding enduring love with wife No. 5

James Cameron looked smitten with his fifth wife Suzy Amis as the pair hit the red carpet at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday.

The Avatar director, 68, posed up with his actress wife, 61, who he met when he directed her as Lizzy Calvert in Titanic in 1996 – ahead of the iconic filmmaker’s battle to scoop  two awards for Avatar: The Way of Water.

Cameron looked dapper in a black suit with a blue tie, while Amis wore a chic white blazer.

Cameron told Laverne Cox on the red carpet that his wife tells him what to do at these events: ‘She’s the brains of the operation. She always just tells me what to say.’

The pair have been married since 2000 and share one son and two daughters.

While he was making Titanic, and living with Terminator actress Linda Hamilton, he fell for Suzy Amis, who had a small part in the movie. Later, torn between the two, he left Amis, went back to Hamilton and married her in 1997.

The marriage lasted just eight months before he went back to Amis in 1999. He had been with Hamilton since 1991 and they share one daughter.

He was first married to Sharon Williams from 1978 to 1984. 

A year after he and Sharon divorced, Cameron married film producer Gale Anne Hurd but they divorced in 1989. 

Soon after separating from Hurd, Cameron met the director Kathryn Bigelow whom he wed in 1989, and they divorced in 1991. 

The Golden Globes ceremony is being held once again at The Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills following a one year break from screens amid controversy over ethical lapses and a lack of diversity. 

Now the embattled Hollywood Foreign Press Association – which puts on the Globes – is seeking a primetime comeback.

Yellowstone finally made the list of Golden Globes nominees after repeated snubs from the film and TV industry, with a Best Actor in a Drama Series nomination for star Kevin Costner. 

The Banshees of Inisherin starring Colin Farrell won the most nominations – eight – while Everything Everywhere All At Once won six. 

Elvis, Avatar: The Way of Water and Top Gun: Maverick were all nominated for Best Picture while The Crown won an array of nominations.

The White Lotus swept the Limited Series categories, with actresses Jennifer Coolidge and Aubrey Plaza winning nominations for Best Supporting Actresses. 

Brendan Fraser won a nomination for Best Actor for his role in The Whale, however he previously vowed not to attend the show in a boycott of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. 

He previously accused Philip Berk – the now banned former HFPA president who called BLM a ‘hate movement – of groping him at a luncheon. 

Jennifer Coolidge and Aubrey Plaza were both nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series for their roles in Season 2 of The White Lotus. 

The series was also nominated for Best Limited Series. Dahmer, the Netflix hit about the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, won four nominations. 

Austin Butler was nominated for Best Actor in a Drama for his role in Elvis, which also claimed a nomination for Best Picture. 

Elizabeth Debicki was nominated for her role as Princess Diana in The Crown, while Jonathan Pryce was nominated for his role as Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. 

The 2023 awards marks a return to air for the embattled Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HPFA) since it overhauled its organization following a racism row in 2021. 

The HFPA scandal erupted in 2021 when it emerged there were no black members among the 87-person association. 

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler called out the association live during their 2021 opening monologue in February of that year. 

‘The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is made up of around 90 international no black journalists who attend movie junkets each year in search of a better life.

‘We say around 90 because a couple of them might be ghosts,’ Fey said.

Stars threatened to boycott the awards and Tom Cruise, who had won three Globes in the past, vowed to return them all unless the association changed its ways. 

In April, the association’s former president Phil Berk was fired for his resistance to BLM. 

He sent an email to other members with a link to an article in which the organization was compared to cult murderer Charles Manson. 

The article in Frontpagemag.com claimed BLM was trying to incite a ‘race war’. 

The 2023 Globes will be hosted by black comedian Jerrod Carmichael. There are 27 awards up for grabs. 

The Golden Globe Awards honor the best in film and American television as voted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.  They are also considered the unofficial kick-off to awards season which culminates with The Oscars on March 12.

Previously announced Golden Globe Award winner and six-time nominee Eddie Murphy will be the recipient of the 2023 Cecil B. DeMille Award.

Five-time Golden Globe Award winner and sixteen-time nominee Ryan Murphy will receive the Carol Burnett Award. 

Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Quentin Tarantino and Billy Porter are among the stars presenting awards at the show.

As the awards show has been accused of having a lack of diversity, perhaps the HFPA wanted to steer clear of controversy as  Will Smith, 54, did not receive a nomination for film Emancipation months after his infamous slap of Chris Rock at The Oscars.

Meanwhile Jennifer Lawrence, 32, was also ignored for indie film Causeway.

Keke Palmer also did not earn a recognition for her transcendent performance in Jordan Peele’s horror/sci-fi flick Nope.

Julia Roberts and George Clooney also failed to be recognized for their romantic comedy Ticket To Paradise which earned an impressive $70million in the worldwide box office.

Hollywood had effectively boycotted the Globes. It used to be one of the most-watched award shows after the Academy Awards. 

NBC had reason to want to get the Globes back on the air. 

In 2018, the network signed an eight-year deal to continue airing the awards through 2026. 

Citing the HFPA’s ongoing reforms, NBC elected not to televise the previous Golden Globes in January. The organization went ahead announcing awards, anyway, in an untelevised and little-noticed gathering unattended by nominees.

This year´s ceremony, the organizations said, will be broadcast in a one-year agreement.

Terms were unavailable but the deal is expected to be less than the approximately $60 million the network previously paid annually to air the Globes. With backlash swirling and the ceremony scaled down because of the pandemic, the 2021 Globes were watched by 6.9 million people, according to Nielsen, down from more than 18 million the year before.

Whether NBC’s endorsement will be enough to return the Globes to Hollywood’s good graces, however, remains to be seen. Nominations for the Globes were announced on December 12.

The HFPA is currently being run by interim Chief Executive Todd Boehly, whose investment firm, Eldridge Industries, bought the Globes and turned it from a nonprofit into a for-profit venture. 

Boehly’s firm is also the parent company of dick clark productions, the awards’ producer, and the owner of the Globes’ longtime home, the Beverly Hilton.

 The 80th annual Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC and streaming service Peacock on Tuesday, January 10 at 8pm EST/5pm PST.
