Every year, those nominated for cinema’s highest honor have already won, not only the respect of audience and peers alike, but also one of the most coveted gift bags in any event’s history. That’s right, on February 22nd each and every contender will walk out of the Dolby Theater with some amazing and unexpected presents, some would even say bizarre. The bag will be gifted to anyone who is nominated for a golden statue – including Steve Carrel, Michael Keaton and Bradley Cooper, who are all nominated in the Actress in a Leading Role category.
Pulled together by the Los Angeles-based marketing company Distinctive Assets, it includes a variety of luxury skincare products and toys each A-lister can enjoy whether they win a statue or not. The most covetable items include all-natural French Mediterranean sea salts, personal training sessions, and a three-night stay at Villa Armena in Tuscany
Oscar’s top actors could also wind up travelling to Canada this summer thanks to the luxury train ride gift card they’ll receive from Rocky Mountaineer. The package will see A-listers travel from Vancouver to the Canadian Rockies in Alberta.
Other gifts include car rentals from the all-Audi company Silvercar and a gift card to Enigma Life, a company that provides the famous set with horoscope readings and dream analysis ad get this, mind reading techniques! Also, a contribution towards a Reset Yourself lifestyle makeover.
For those who like a little bling, a Lat & Lo silver necklace inscribed with the latitude and longitude coordinates of the Dolby Theatre will be a welcome gift, as well as a glamping trip from Terravelo Tours, which specialises in outdoor adventures that offer gourmet cuisine and plush sleeping spaces.
$800 worth of sweets in the form of a candy and dessert buffet will certainly be appreciated by those actors with a sweet tooth, while those who enjoy a stylish aesthetic will welcome a piece of custom furniture designed by Elena Foccoli. A Home Spa System from Steamist, the Narrative Clip, wearable camera, and a donation of Halo Natural Pet Food to the animal shelter of the celeb’s choice are all also included in the special gift bag.
