The Weirdest Items In This Year’s Oscars Swag Bag

Oscar Swag Bag

Each year the Academy Awards compile the most extravagant gift bag in Hollywood for all of its nominees. From trips across the globe to spa treatments to plastic surgery (seriously), the Oscars swag bag is full of expensive stuff for people who can actually afford it.

The total for this year’s gift bag comes to $232,000 USD, or if you want to really feel depressed about dropping drama class in Grade 11, that’s $316,182.36 Canadian. Or a house. That’s an entire house.

While most swag bags we get have a pair of $1 sunglasses and a few pens and a notebook we’ll never use, the Oscar’s loot is a bit…different. We decided to break down all 41 items into categories and pick out our favourite (re: weirdest) items.
