    Default Edward Norton hits out at award shows

    Acclaimed actor EDWARD NORTON has slammed the Oscars and Golden Globe ceremonies as "orgies" of self-congratulatory behaviour.

    The FIGHT CLUB star admits he is often tempted to ditch acting altogether when the prize giving season comes round each year. He says, "The award shows just f**king rude me out. I get really, really down on the whole thing.

    "I mean, I'm glad CAPOTE, SYRIANA and GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK are being celebrated, but on the whole the thing that goes on between November and March is like an orgy. It's out of control.

    "It's that totally disproportionate elevation of the artist and it's gross. I start to go, 'I should do something else.'"

    I agree w/ him. It's nice to acknoweldge people and their accomplishments, but Hollywood is so full of itself, it's ridiculous. There are people doing a lot more good in the world that NEVER receive any recognition and don't ask for it. Hollywood is a bunch of (mostly) uneducated, self-indulgent, egomaniacs that 'dress up and play make believe' for a living. They use their fame as a platform to run off at the mouth and consider themselves "activists". Some have pet charities, mostly for PR, but spend more time shopping and partying than actually worrying about anyone else. And I don't begrudge them ANY of that. I just don't understand why they're so damn proud of themselves.

    I'm with Grimm... Nothing like being the next big thing and then fizzling out to bring on a big fat dose of bitterness.

    Death to Smoochy! Is it my imagination, or is that movie considered to be a bad one? I laughed my ass off many times on that one. Robin Williams was HILARIOUS in that! I don't care what any critic says, I love that movie.

    Maybe his rolls in the hay with Courtney sucked the talent right out of him.

    Yeah, Frank, whatever happened to Edward Furlong?? Is he strung-out? I LOVED HIM in T2, thought he was gonna be the next best thing, but he fucked it all up with drugs and alcohol, I think. DAMN HIM!! At least I can still count on Joseph Gordon-Levitt. *dabs eyes* My little boy's growing up. I'm so proud! *sniffle*
