'Avatar' tops 3D group's inaugural awards
Int'l 3D Society honors sci-fi epic as best live-action movie
Jim Cameron's "Avatar" shone brightly at the International 3D Society's inaugural kudos event Tuesday, copping a half-dozen Lumiere Awards and a People's Choice award for favorite live-action movie.
The sci-fi fantasy, produced in motion capture and live action, also took the award as best live-action pic. Disney/Pixar's "Up" won for best animated film.
The fledgling industry group staged the awards at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, with "Avatar" cast member Giovanni Ribisi representing "Avatar" filmmakers and actors in accepting accolades in various categories.
Actor Brendan Fraser received a 3D Talent award, and the society honored DreamWorks Animation chief Jeffrey Katzenberg with its 3D Visionary award.
