Oscar-winning director James Cameron has emerged as the most powerful man in Hollywood in a survey conducted by The Guardian.
The ‘Avatar’ director beat filmmaker Steven Spielberg and Leonardo DiCaprio, who claimed the second and the third positions respectively on 2010’s Power 100 list.
“Cameron occupies the top two spots in the list of the highest-grossing movies of all time, with ‘Titanic’ (worldwide gross: USD 1.8bn) second only to ‘Avatar’ (USD 2.7bn)… No film-maker has taken a more passionate interest and involvement in cinema technology than this Canadian-born writer-director-producer,” said the UK daily.
Animation genius John Lasseter, brains behind the ‘Toy Story’ franchise, ‘Finding Nemo’ and ‘Ratatouille’, won the fourth position, while superstar Brad Pitt came fifth on the list.
‘Inception’ director Christopher Nolan, ‘No Country for Old Men’ producer Scott Rudin, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, actor George Clooney and British Secretary of state for culture, communications and creative industries Ed Vaizey rounded up the top 10.
