Avatar director in town through Tuesday afternoon

Director James Cameron, fresh off his Avatar Golden Globes win, checked into the Willard Hotel on Pennsylvania Ave. Monday evening. He plans to be in town through Tuesday afternoon.

Cameron took home the best director Golden Globe on Sunday evening and his movie Avatar won best drama. It is unclear why Cameron is in town. Cameron has traditionally donated money to Democrats, but in 2006 he gave $5,000 to the California Republican party.
