The Academy Awards have scrapped Tiger Woods jokes that were to be performed by hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin.

"Some of the Tiger jokes were deemed too rude," a source told the New York Post.

In other Oscars news, Avatar director James Cameron has reportedly said he doesn't mind Avatar jokes.

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen along with Ben Stiller were expected to poke fun at Avatar at the show but the slot was cancelled.

It was rumoured that its had taken out of the schedule because the Award producers did not want to offend any of the nominees, but Cameron told E Online that thecancellation has nothing do with him.

"I don't know anything about that. I don't produce the Oscars. If they want to poke fun at Avatar on Sunday, that's OK by me," Cameron said.

"The Oscars are a celebration of movies. Even the gaffes and out-of-bounds stuff are all part of the fun."

In an interview with National Public Radio (NPR), Oscars producer Adam Shankman said that Cohen was in the running as host but the Academy decided it was "too big of a wild card."
