He's oozing sense of humor.

James Cameron has weighed in on the decision to cancel a Sacha Baron Cohen Avatar skit from Sunday's Oscars in order to spare the director's feelings. He tells E!:

"I don't know anything about that ... I don't produce the Oscars. If they want to poke fun at Avatar' Sunday, that's okay by me."

Show co-producer Bill Mechanic denies the allegations and comments:

"It was a little too MTV for everyone."

Oh right. This year's Oscars are about respect and gravitas and not fun party vibes. I forgot about that. I guess that means awards DJ Joel Madden won't be playing Diddy's "I'll Be Missing You" over the celebrity death montage. (Vulture)
