Producer Jon Landau said that Cameron, 68, could not attend due to “personal reasons,” per Variety. He was spotted at CAA’s pre-Oscars party in Los Angeles on Friday, March 10.

Cameron was name-checked as an absentee nominee in Jimmy Kimmel‘s opening monologue at the top of ABC’s live broadcast. “You know, Tom [Cruise] and James Cameron didn’t show up tonight. The two guys who insisted we go to the theater didn’t come the theater,” the host, 55, said to the audience at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

Kimmel added that while Top Gun: Maverick and the Avatar sequel are up for Best Picture, Cruise wasn’t up for Best Actor and Cameron wasn’t nominated for Best Director. “I mean, how does the Academy not nominate the guy who directed Avatar? What do they think he is, a woman?” Kimmel quipped. The Best Director nominations were controversial as no women were included.
