Beauty Bonanza: Take a Peek Inside the $55,000 Academy Awards Goody Bag
Crammed full of pricey presents, this year's Oscars swag is nothing to sniff at
Ringing up at an astounding $55K, the "Everybody Wins" goody bag boasts luxury vacations (Mexico, Japan, Canada, Hawaii, and Las Vegas), cutting edge technology gizmos, designer jewelry, handbags, timepieces and footwear and more than $6,000 in Halo pet food which can be donated to any number of local animal shelters. (Oscar host Ellen Degeneres is a big supporter of wayward cats and dogs.)
"We always look forward to introducing celebrities to an array of companies with fabulous gifts to share," Distinctive Assets founder Lash Fary said in a news release. "But it's particularly fun to be able to do so when you know it will truly brighten someone's day. Even Hollywood's most acclaimed stars are disappointed over this particular loss, and when our consolation gift shows up the next day we like to think it's a welcome distraction."

From where we sit, perhaps the most exciting component for those lucky duck recipients (rich, famous, rubbing shoulders with Clooney and all this free stuff?!?) is the bounty of beauty booty. Get ready to reign in your green-eyed monster.
In addition to the above-mentioned trinkets, those who go home without Oscar have the following to look forward to:
Acure Skincare products ($300)
M3K Beauty Products ($300)
Nutritionist, acupuncturist house call ($500)
10 Personal Trainer sessions ($850)
Steamist home spa system ($2,560)
Aromatherapy session house call ($450)
Massage session house call ($350)
Hydroxycut gummies, protein bars ($85)
Makeup Studio Products by Diane Capt ($105)
All in all, this abundant supply of fun-to-have-but-don't-really-need goodies could help take the sting out of not hearing your name called. Or, it might just serve as an expensive reminder that you lost. It will have to depend, like so much else in Hollywood, on the spin it's given.
