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

Valued at more than $200,000

Oscar-nominee gift bag
There's a huge upside to being a nominee in one of the major Oscar categories this year, even if you lose.That honor, of course, is the "swag bag" that's given to each contender in the best actor, actress, supporting actor, supporting actress, and director categories.

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

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