"Avatar" also won the award for best motion picture.

"... 'Avatar' I guess asks us to see ... that everything is connected, all human beings to each other and us to the Earth," Cameron said while receiving the best-picture award.

"And, you know, if you have to go four-and-a-half light years to another made-up planet to appreciate this miracle of a world that we have right here, well you know what, that's the wonder of cinema right there. That's the magic."

Speaking of film making, Cameron said: "I think this is the best job in the world, you know? It just really is. ... We all have the best jobs in the world and what we do is we make entertainment for a global audience and that's what the Golden Globes mean."

"It's such an exciting evening and just walking in through here, walking in with all you great creative amazing people," said Cameron who last accepted a Golden Globe for "Titanic".

"I look around this room and I see the faces of people that I've respected and admired for years. Some of you I know and have worked with and many of you I'd love to have the opportunity to work with."
