James Cameron's ex-wife has predicted that the Avatar director will lose out on the best film Oscar - to his other ex-wife.

Avatar and former wife Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker are both in the running for best film.

Asked who she thought would win, James's other ex Linda Hamilton said: "I really wonder, my instinct says it will be Hurt Locker, I mean the big blockbusters are rarely rewarded."

The Terminator veteran and star of new comedy Holy Water added: "I love Avatar."

"As a matter of fact", she laughed, "I've been telling everybody that Holy Water is so much like Avatar.

"No, but I thought Hurt Locker was a brilliant film. I really loved Precious too. I loved the way that story was told, and I think it was one of the great films of this past year, but it's probably going to be Hurt Locker."

Holy Water is released at selected UK cinemas on Friday, February 5.
