Edward Norton is all about banishing lavish gift baskets on presenters at top awards shows. Norton "is appalled" by the freebies celebs pick up backstage at events like the Golden Globes and the Oscars, while many people watching the ceremonies at home are "struggling to pay the rent and feed their kids." So refreshing to see a human that isn't completely self centered and selfish.
He says, "A lot of us have talked to the Academy Awards producers about this and I think they're actually going to scuttle the gift baskets and that kind of stuff. I mean the gift baskets, worth amounts of money that a low income family could live on for a year, are given to people who have so much already. It gets depressing. You sit there, going, 'This is an embarrassment.'" Nothing worse than someone sitting in a big pile of wealth hoarding it all to themselves.
