Kathryn Bigelow Gets A Better Oscar Seat Than James Cameron (PHOTOS)

Kathryn Bigelow got a better seat at the The Oscars than fellow nominee and ex-husband James Cameron.

The "Hurt Locker" and "Avatar" directors both had choice aisle seats, with Bigelow directly in front of Cameron. In front of them but not on an aisle was Bigelow's "Hurt Locker" star Jeremy Renner.

Before the awards started, Cameron was photographed fake choking Bigelow, as seen below.
