James Cameron To Receive Inaugural 3D Filmmaking Award

James Cameron's next acceptance speech may go from "I'm the king of the world!" to "I see you" as the "Avatar" director is set to receive the International 3-D Society's inaugural Harold Lloyd Award.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar-winner will be the first-ever honoree, for his "outstanding achievement in 3-D filmmaking and advocacy." Suzanne Lloyd, granddaughter of 3-D photography visionary Harold Lloyd and chairman of Harold Llyod Entertainment, stated that James Cameron was the obvious choice because he "has embodied Harold Lloyd's vision and passion for dazzling audiences across the globe."

"With 'Avatar' and his commitment to 3-D storytelling, it is appropriate that he is the first recipient of this most prestigious annual award," she added.

Cameron will be presented with the award on February 9 at the International 3-D Society's 2nd Annual Creative Arts Awards at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. The ceremony itself will be recorded and telecast in 3-D (of course) for a 2-hour special on 3net.

This news comes just days before the release of 3-D underwater cave diving saga "Sanctum" (which Cameron produced) and right on the heels of Cameron's announcement about details on, as well as the anticipated release dates for "Avatar 2" and "Avatar 3," the follow-ups to his groundbreaking digital 3-D 2009 film.
