Inside The Oscars Goodie Bag That's Worth £100,000

Inside The Oscars Goodie Bag That's Worth £100,000

With the build up to the Oscars already in full flow, the world's biggest stars are gearing up for a bit of a do on Sunday.

And even though they are all rich and famous, they get given a free night out AND a goodie bag worth $100,000. Not fair really is it.

The party favours have been selected and given out by a company called Distinctive Assets for almost 20 years, but this year's gift looks like one of the biggest.

But what's in it, I hear you ask. Well, some pretty incredible holidays and gadgets, as well as a load of expensive tat, really.

The gift bag includes personalised stained glass windows - because, showbiz, 'smart bras' - which help people find the perfect bra size - and deodorant.

But it's only reserved for the most coveted categories, probably as a way to console them when they miss out on the career-defining award.

The bags are delivered to nominees in the Best Actor/Actress, Best Supporting Actor/Actress and Best Director categories. The lucky recipients include Scarlett Johansson, Antonio Banderas, Cynthia Erivo, Adam Driver, Charlize Theron, Joaquin Phoenix, Renee Zellweger, Tom Hanks, Laura Dern, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Kathy Bates, Quentin Tarantino, Saoirse Ronan and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Among the prizes are posh chocolate - that would be enough for me to be fair - as well as other experiences and products, including a 12-day luxury cruise, false eyelashes and wellness retreats, because, you know, they can't already afford them.

Speaking about the bags, Lash Fary - founder of Distinctive Assets - explained: "Every human being, regardless of wealth or fame, appreciates the simple joy of a gift. While our Everyone Wins Gift Bag is certainly not given based on need, it is assembled with a profound sense of gratitude for the incredible performances these talented individuals shared with all of us this year.

"While this gift bag does always have an impressive value, that is never our goal. A great gift has nothing to do with a price tag.

"This year's gift bag is one of the best we have ever assembled. I am truly excited for the nominees to experience it."
