If you’re a loser at the Oscars, you’re still a loser.

The Academy is handing out these gift bags, valued at $80,000, to this year’s nominees and for those who don’t take home an Oscar, well, they get to take home this ridiculous hodgepodge of weirdness.

All the usual suspects are here—skincare products, vacation packages to Hawaii, wax candles worth more than what you pay in rent for your apartment—but they’re easily overshadowed by this crazier shit.

Pretty sure no actor's agent or contract is just going to let their talent somersault 100 feet in the air for an afternoon, but okay.


Slimware portion-control plates


To help you “change the way you LOOK at dieting” through dishware. It’s a set of plates you can barely see (in other words, they’re basically just small-ass plates).
