Oscars losers get $45K goody bags full of trips, coupons and condoms2/20/2013
The last time we got a goody bag, it had a free toothbrush from the dentist. There's a little more glitz — and a much bigger price tag — in the swag bags given to any nominees who don't win an Oscar. Those bags are valued at more than $45,000 (more than some of us make in a year) and contain everything from trips to Australia to coupons for cosmetic procedures to … condoms? The bags are prepared by Distinctive Assets, which apparently had time to pick up a few boxes of Trojans before the ceremony. Interestingly, these gifts can't be endorsed by the Academy — otherwise, the recipients would have to pay taxes on them. See? That never happens with a toothbrush. [Source]
