Oscar Nominees Receive Land In Their Goodie Bag This Year

You heard that right!




Distinctive Assets, a “niche marketing company” based in LA, sends out swag bags valued at around $126,000 to acting and directing nominees every year.

The goodie bags, which are not associated with the Academy, include a variety of luxury items and experiences, such as a facelift, silk pillowcases, and a three-night stay in Ottawa.


Brands pay $4,000 to have their products featured in the goodie bags.


This year, one of the most significant gifts is a plot of land in Australia from Pieces of Australia’s “Aussie Mate” conservation packages, providing celebrities with their own square metre of land on the “Envirocean Estate” in Queensland’s Western Downs region.
