You're up for an Academy Award, or "just" a presenter, or performer. You're big time. Sought-after, adored, celebrated, rewarded. You've got it all. So why do you need more gifts? What's with the free spa treatments, free TV's, and $1,500 steak dinners? Why do you get over a hundred thousand dollars worth of stuff and not have to pay for any of it? And you can way pay for it. Even free satellite cable for a year. You can't pay for your own cable? That's just greedy.But, of course, the thing is, among all the 'greedy' 'got-it-all' US$20M-a-pop Hollywood stars is Taika (and presumably his short-film making mates, as well as some of the documentary makers). They must be stoked. Even if Taika sees even a half of the value of the rumoured US$100000+ that the gift bags are supposedly worth, he'll be absolutely laughing.
