How many Oscars has James Cameron won? With what movies?
James Cameron’s Avatar: Way of Water is up for Best Picture at this year’s Academy Awards. How many Oscars has he won?
Director James Cameron’s film ‘Titanic’ was his first work to land him an Oscar nomination. Not only did the film staring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio earn him one chance to take home the hefty gold statue but three.... and so he did.
At the 1998 Academy Awards, ‘Titanic’ won Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Film Editing. More nominations would come years later, but these three awards remain Cameron’s only Oscars.
Less luck for Cameron...
At the 82nd Academy Awards in 2010, ‘Avatar’ earned Cameron nominations in the same three categories, none of which he would take home. That year Best Picture went to Katheryn Bigelow’s ‘The Hurt Locker’ would sweep all three categories.

What nominations has Cameron received this year?
This year, ‘Avatar: Way of Water’ has earned Cameron one chance to add another win to his Oscar collection.
The sequel was nominated for Best Picture alongside ‘All Quiet on the Western Front,’ ‘The Banshees of Inisherin,’ ‘Elvis,’ ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once,’ ‘The Fabelmans,’ ‘Tár,’ ‘Top Gun: Maverick,’ ‘Triangle of Sadness,’ and ‘Women Talking.’
‘The Fabelmans’ took home a similar prize awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press’ Golden Globes, which tend to be a major indicator of the films that will do well at the Oscars. For example, in 1998, ‘Titanic’ won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Drama.
