This year, the Oscars’ ‘Everyone Wins’ gift bags were worth US$225,000, according to Forbes, and everyone nominated in the Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress categories got to bring one home for themselves.
The treats included various stays, luxurious cosmetics, and even a matchmaking service. The brands, however, reportedly had to pay US$4,000 to be included in the array.
Though the nominees were treated to these goodies free-of-charge, they still had to pay the income tax for the monetary values tied to the gifts.
Take a look at the rest of the gifts that were presented to the nominees this year.
