What Do Oscar Nominees Get If They Don’t Win? Some Great Stuff, That’s What.

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.

Courteney Cox’s Instagram Caption Is Every Parent With A Teenage Kid

Published

Have you heard? It’s 2020 and we’re all supposed to music videos on TikTok. Courteney Cox is no exception. The TV star posted an instagram of her and her daughter Coco dancing it out, with the hilarious caption, “Wanna see your child lose their patience? Do a TikTok with them.”

Also, how long does it take to actually learn one of these routines? It seems very time consuming.

What I was really hoping for was video of her daughter losing her patience, but what we got was a pretty strong routine!
