Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

For the past two decades, the “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags have been organised by marketing company Distinctive Assets and given to the nominees in the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director categories.

The gift bag is not officially affiliated with the Oscars, despite having become an annual fixture the nominees can expect to receive.

This year, the nominees in the aforementioned categories will receive gifts including a 12-day cruise, a custom stained glass portrait and a 24K gold vape pen – because, of course, if anyone needs an array of opulent, free gifts, it’s the elite members of the entertainment industry.

These nominees include Leonardo DiCaprio, Renée Zellweger, Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt.

Lash Fary, founder of Distinctive Assets, said “every human being, regardless of wealth or fame, appreciates the simple joy of a gift”.

“While our ‘Everyone Wins’ Gift Bag is certainly not given based on need, it is assembled with a profound sense of gratitude for the incredible performances these talented individuals shared with all of us this year,” Fary said.

According to Forbes, the value of this year’s gift bag totals at around $215,000 (£164,733).

Fary added that while the gift bag “does have an impressive value”, a “great gift has nothing to do with a price tag”.
