AvatarWith 11 days to go before the 2010 Oscar nominations are announced, it's pretty clear that the Best Picture winner will be either 'Avatar,' 'The Hurt Locker,' or 'Up in the Air.' And after 'Avatar's' double win for best drama and best director (James Cameron) at the Golden Globes, there isn't that much hope for the other two.

But whether an 'Avatar' victory is a foregone conclusion or not, one wonders, where's the passion for it? By Oscar night, 'Avatar' will almost certainly be the biggest moneymaker in movie history, but it hasn't generated one-tenth the level of devotion as Cameron's 1998 Oscar winner 'Titanic.' In fact, beyond its dazzling special effects, how many people really like 'Avatar'?
