This year's Oscars nominees will be spoiled with an incredible gift bag that includes a three-night stay with seven friends on an Italian island, a plot of land in Australia, liposuction and Botox treatments, and even a Canadian holiday! These are just some of the 60 items included.
Excitement's in the air as Everybody Wins announces their gift bags for the 2023 Oscars, and we've got a sneak peek at what goodies Paul Mescal, Kerry Condon, Brendan Gleeson, Martin McDonagh, Colin Farrell and Barry Keoghan will receive!
The 2022 gift bag was an incredibly generous prize, amounting to a whopping $137,000. It even included a $12,000 voucher for liposuction treatments!
This year, the lucky few celebs will be able to spend three fun nights with their closest pals on the beautiful island of Ischia in Italy, as well as three nights at the ten-acre Canadian estate, The Lifestyle in Ottawa. An opportunity not to be missed!
Lash Fary of Distinctive Assets has been assembling the "Everyone Wins" nominee gift bag for 21 years and this year has chosen items that focus largely on health & wellness.
Unfortunately, only 26 nominees from the acting and directing categories will be able to enjoy the freebies. It is important to note that this gift bag is not endorsed or provided by the Oscars or The Academy.
Even if players don't emerge as the winner on Sunday, they can always take heart in the fact that they get to walk away with a consolatory prize of $126,000 worth of swag. As Fary put it to Reuters, it's quite the fun consolation for them.
This gift bag comes with items from a whopping 60 companies, with beauty products from Ariadne Athens, Art Lipo body sculpting and Bauman Medical hair restoration services among others. C60 Purple Power edible massage oil, Dr Konstantin Vasyukevich facial rejuvenation procedures and NaturGeeks functional wellness immunity boost is also featured in the package.
Planning for the gift bag started back in August 2022, almost five months in advance of the event.
However, not all the things in the swag bag are tangible items. Australia's Pieces of Land Gift seeks to protect and conserve its bushlands and forests. PETA has a travel pillow that promotes primate rights, while the Upminders LRU (Love, Respect, Unity) Medallion is designed to combat racism, bullying and suicide. Nobody can resist a good snack, especially A-listers. To keep them satisfied, they get a range of delicious treats. These include M Cacao Expressio chocolates – with an embedded video message inside each box and Opopop microwave popcorn kernels. The Beauty Tea Company's exclusive, all-natural tea selection, Ysidro's canned sake spritz, Ginza Nishikawa shokunin and CLIF Thins snacks are all great options for those looking to try something new.
Companies are willing to shell out $4000 for a place in the celebrity bags in hopes of gaining publicity by associating with a famous face. Although there is no assurance that the stars will use all the items or mention the brands, they still take this risk.
Distinctive Assets has confirmed that the Everybody Wins gift is of a six-figure value, though the precise amount remains undisclosed.
To ensure the recipients of the gift bags receive them in good time, they will be dispatched ahead of the Oscars ceremony this Sunday.
