Here's what's reportedly going to be inside the $100k Oscars gift bags
Despite the fact it's an honour to be nominated in the first place, it's hard not to look at the faces of the nominees who lose out to an award and feel a little sorry for them. However, when it comes to the Oscars, we shouldn't feel too bad. Not only do they get the title of 'Oscar-nominated actor' before their name from now on, but they also get some treats just for showing up to the ceremony.
The 25 nominees in the acting and directing categories each receive the 'Everyone Wins' Nominee Gift Bag, which is said to be valued at around $100,000. This is the 17th year it has been run by LA marketing agency Distinctive Assets, who put together a bag of swag with some unique inclusions - including a selection of cannabis products this year - which “is tied to the legalization of cannabis in California,” Lash Fary, Founder of Distinctive Assets, said.
Fary adds that this is about applauding talents with "fun and festive" presents rather than to "boast an impressive value," but when you look at the long list included, there's plenty to go on.
