Everything Oscar nominees get in the extravagant $200,000 'swag bag' they take home

5 Things You Didn't Know About Oscar Nominations

There's a huge upside to being a nominee in one of the major Oscar categories this year, even if you lose.

The honor, of course, but also the "swag bag" that's given to each contender in the best actor, best actress, best supporting actor/actress, and directing categories.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, and more will each walk home with one of these gift bags, valued at more than $200,000 (if they're willing to report them to the IRS, since gifts of this size are taxable).

The bags — known as "Everyone Wins" prizes and provided by Distinctive Assets, a company not associated with the Academy — include some very swanky and even bizarre items: trips to Japan, Israel, and Italy, $275 toilet paper, and something known as a "Vampire Breast Lift."

Similar to the "Vampire Facelift" made famous by Kim Kardashian, this procedure draws blood, separates out platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and then reinserts it onto the breasts to stimulate cleavage without implants. That's the idea, anyway.
