You could call the 2010 Oscar race the Battle of the Exes.

"Avatar" and "The Hurt Locker" now lead the Academy Awards with nine nominations each, including best picture and director for James Cameron and Kathryn Bigelow (left), who just happen to have been married in the late '80s. 

Cameron's "Avatar" also got eight nods for this year's British version of the Oscars, the Baftas. And he's up against Kathryn's "Locker" for six of them. Oh, this is gonna get ugly.
