Every year, dreams are dashed when the winners of the Oscars are announced. But there is some small consolation for the acting and directing nominees who lose out, as everyone gets given a special Academy Awards goodie bag to take home, usually worth in excess of $100,000.

Although not officially sanctioned by the Academy, who actually sued the swag distributors Distinctive Assets in 2016, the practice still continues, with the ludicrously wealthy taking home equally expensive and lavish gifts (holiday to Tanzania, anyone?)

This year’s 26 acting and directing nominees – who include Timothee Chalamet, Gary Oldman, Laura Metcalf, Saoirse Ronan, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand and Octavia Spencer - will also receive a swag bag worth a rumoured $100,000, with an eclectic selection of gifts including but not limited to…

Luxury vacations

A 23 and me genetic history kit

Pepper spray

A week-long spa retreat at Golden Door

A $10,000 donation to the animal shelter of their choice

Colour changing lipstick

A weight loss supplement

A Danish cookbook

A lifetime supply of Oxygenetix foundation

10 personal training sessions with Alexis Seletzky

PETA’s cruelty-free bath bombs

Youthblast anti-aging supplements

A 24K gold facial

Rouge maple syrup

Nurse Gigi skin rejuvenation procedures

The Green Garmento’s multi-use Gigantote

… all of which says a lot about Hollywood today, don’t you think?
