Some of these gifts are seriously random!
When it comes to the film industry, The Oscars is the big, glitzy awards show that we all know and love.
The 2017 ceremony has been slightly overshadowed by mistakes and crossed wires, but there are some things that never change and one of them is the 'swag bag'.
Each year, nominees in the Best Actor & Actress, Best Supporting Actor & Actress and Best Director categories are given a bag of gifts either in the run up to the awards show or just afterwards. These are not created by or endorsed by The Oscars, but instead are created by a private company Distinctive Assets.
They've been providing them to nominees for the last 15 years and the contents of this one is very interesting...
Estimated to be worth approximately $100,000, there are definitely some items that the recipients will love and some that they'll 100% be re-gifting asap!
