In case one of your favorite actors or actresses don’t win that coveted gold Oscar statuette tonight, don’t fret! At the very least, each of the nominees will receive a goody bag full of gifts — worth a whopping $45,000! Holy cow! Can you imagine? The gift bags contain some pretty basic items and also some outlandish stuff. “The Hollywood Reporter” has the details:
Mingling next to high-end items including a trip to Australia and $5,000 face-lift gift certificate are a slew of hysterically lowbrow goods such as the self-help book Take 2: Your Guide to Happy Endings and New Beginnings, by QVC maven and radio talk show host Leeza Gibbons. We see Steven Spielberg and Russell Crowe totally diving into that one.
Then there’s the Portion-Control Dinnerware by Slimware ($59), hair ties that double as bracelets ($80) and something called The Ultimate Fuzz Remover ($19.99), which we ascertain removes sweater pills, not body hair.
A bottle of Windex ($3.99) might be the bag’s piece de resistance. Until you get to the six-pack of Naked Brand condoms, that is.
Luckily, there’s also a bottle of high-end maple syrup by Rouge Maple Gourmet Products ($120), which is perfect for the morning-after pancakes nominees can make now that they have all those condoms on hand.
Can you imagine getting a trip to Australia just for being nominated? It makes us think we’re in the wrong end of the business (we’re not!). What do you think of these ultra expensive gift bags? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts!
