Every year, I am fascinated by the gift bags Oscar nominees get. But truthfully, it’s so much stuff that a gift bag doesn’t really hold it all. Check out some of the crazy cool stuff that the losers, er, I mean ‘non-winners’ will receive. All added up, it comes to about $45,000 in swag.

Oscar Gifts

Every year, I am fascinated by the gift bags Oscar nominees get. But truthfully, it’s so much stuff that a gift bag doesn’t really hold it all. Check out some of the crazy cool stuff that the losers, er, I mean ‘non-winners’ will receive. All added up, it comes to about $45,000 in swag.

A $12,000 trip to Australia

A $3,000 stay at the St. Regis Punta Mita Resort in Mexico

A $600 acupuncture appointment

$400 Circus lessons for the nominee’s children

A $5,000 face-lift procedure called the “Vampire Facelift.

A $1,800 one-year membership to Heathrow Airport’s private VIP service

A $795 water filtration system

A $400 diet program

A $204 custom candle package

$120.00 Maple syrup, from Rouge Maple Gourmet Products (That stuff had better be delicious… from the lookcs of the bottle (above) it probably is. What can I say, I’m a sucker for great packaging.

Windex. (I’m serious. The information I have just says ‘windex.’ I’m assuming there’s more to it than that, but if not, that’s a retail value of about $3.99.)

A $20 six-pack box of Naked brand condoms. Classy!

A $24 Book by Leeza Gibbons. Take 2: Your Guide to Happy Endings and New Beginnings by Leeza Gibbons, a book about “starting over; taking inventory, and getting smarter, stronger, and sexier with no apologies, no regrets and no turning back.”

Slimware$59 Portion-control dinnerware by Slimware. It basically is dinnerware with circles that show you how much of every food category you should eat. (This photo shows the idea – the actual plates don’t have words, they just show the circles.

A $20  lint roller by Gleener, called The Ultimate Fuzz Remover

These huge packages of gifts usually arrive the day after the awards, either to the losing nominee directly or through their management.

The packages are put together by Distinctive Assets, a marketing firm that specializes in celebrity gifting. And clearly, CEO Lash Fary knows what he’s doing.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.
