Oscars 2020: What's Inside A Nominee's RM932,000 Goodie Bag

Goodies for celebs are better than goodies for normal people.

The 2020 Oscars has come and gone, and there were plenty of surprises and of course, some non-surprises.

South Korean movie 'Parasite' made Oscars history by becoming the first foreign film to win Best Picture. Actor Joaquin Phoenix didn't shock anyone by winning the Best Actor award for his role in 'Joker'.

Perhaps the biggest shock of the night came when famous rapper Eminem performed his hit single "Lose Yourself" on the Oscars stage - 17 years after its release.

Ahh, fun times!

'Parasite' is the biggest winner.
But what we wanted to know is what the celebrities got in this year's goodie bags, because those bags are a stuff of legend.

And in case you're wondering, no; they didn't just get Oscar-branded mugs or notebooks.

Tonnes of expensive free gifts

According to USA Today, the major 2020 Academy Award nominees in the acting and directing categories received a goodie bag worth a jaw-dropping USD225,000 (RM932,690)!

The entertainment site reported that some of your favourite celebrities nominated in the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director categories will get these bags for free as part of the famed 'Everyone Wins' campaign.

Times Square Chronicles
The 'Everone Wins' swag bag has been running for 18 years, and the loot is consolidated by marketing company Distinctive Assets.

In fact, sponsors would reportedly have to pay Distinctive Assets a minimum of USD4,000 (RM16,580) to be included in the swag bag.

So, what's inside the swag bag, you ask? Well, here are some of the most absurd goodies Brad Pitt can expect to find in his swag bag:

1) A 12-day cruise for two on a luxury yacht

Get lost in sea for 12-days.
When the Genting Dream Cruises is not fancy enough for our favourite celebs.

2) A five-night stay in Waikiki

Waikiki, here Brad Pitt comes.
To be honest, we don't really know where Waikiki is actually located, but we're guessing that it's a super atas destination since Scarlett Johansson, Joaquin Phoenix and Brand Pitt will be vacationing there soon.

3) Brain-sensing headband that translates mental activity into the sounds of weather

High-tech headband for your fave celebs.
It's like a pair of Apple AirPods, but weirder and more unnecessary.

4) Urine collection and analysis system

Test drug yourself, guys!
Your favourite celebrities can now test if they're positive for drugs in the comfort of their own homes.

5) A stay inside a Spanish lighthouse

Might come with ghosts.
AKA a 'picnic' for a celebrity's standards.  

6) Bath bombs with 24k gold

Look at this bath bomb we can't afford.
Oh, is that why Donald Trump looks so orange these days?

7) One-year membership at matchmaking agency

Who will they matchmake Brad Pitt with?
If only Taylor Swift was a major nominee, because this would come in so handy...

8) Projector that puts stars on the ceiling

Just like real stars.
Why step out of your multi-million dollar mansion to look at the sky when you can stare at your ceiling, right?

9) Foods from a diet that claims to "mimic fasting"

How to eat while fasting.
It's like fasting, but also eating.

10) Pill to give relief from monthly breast pain

What will Brad Pitt do with his?
Could have just given them Panadol, 'cos it works for almost everything.

Of course, these are just some of the coolest (and really weird) stuff a celeb can find in the swag bag.

They'll also get the usual jewellery, vape pen with 24k gold finish, personal training sessions, wellness retreat, workout gear and aromatherapy gift set, just to name a few.

To be honest, we'll be more happy to go home with a goodie bag than an Oscars statue, because an Oscars statue will collect dust at home.
