Distinctive Assets has a pretty sweet philosophy and it is this: everybody wins. As such, every year the company sends out a high-valued goodie bag to each nominee in the Best Actor + Actress, Best Supporting Actor + Actress and Best Director categories to celebrate their achievements, so even if they don’t take home Oscar, they’re still winners.


While there hasn’t been an official Oscar swag bag for some time, Distinctive Assets has been unofficially delivering said bags to the nominees in the weeks leading up to Hollywood’s biggest night for over two decades. The items are typically a blend of fabulous, fun, quirky, useful and indulgent items meant to thrill and pamper those who may have everything money can buy, but still savor getting a gift (like most of us do).To quote Samuel L. Jackson (when he appeared on the Ellen show post-Oscars last year), “The best thing about being famous is the free stuff.”

This year’s gift bonanza stars a luxury small-ship adventure with International Expeditions (choice of Amazon, Galapagos, Iceland or Costa Rica-Panama voyages); an annual VIP membership to MOTA ― LA’s first cannabis friendly social club; private phobia relief sessions with the world’s #1 phobia expert Kalliope Barlis; and Jarritos-filled Yeti Coolers along with a commitment from Jarritos to donate a pallet of their great tasting flavored soft drinks to a charitable event of the nominee’s choice.

Lucky nominees like Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Rami Malek, Glenn Close, Adam Driver, Regina King, Mahershala Ali, Emma Stone, Sam Rockwell, Melissa McCarthy and Spike Lee will also receive the following: premier handcrafted A. Junod Absinthe, personal training sessions with celebrity trainer Alexis Seletzky, AP4GooD limited-edition art T-shirts, one-of-a-kind custom stained glass portraits from artist John Thoman, a week-long Greek beachfront escape at Avaton Luxury Villas Resort, Blush & Whimsy magical color changing lipstick, Chocolatines Chocouture Collection, organic field-to-table dinner for two at Flora Farms (Los Cabos, Mexico), a week of mind/body/spirit renewal at the famed Golden Door luxury wellness resort; guilt-free chocolate (gluten free, dairy free, naturally sweetened) from Good Girl Chocolate, Love Is Stronger Than Hate tote bags and customized Stars of Hope, 3d Luxury Wellness Retreat in Malibu, MZ Skin Lift & Lustre serum and Hydra-Bright eye masks, poolside dinner from Nest Seekers International for nominee + friends prepared by celebrity chef at one of Shawn Elliott’s ultra-luxury listings and a hands-free Safety Dog Leash. 

Although this year’s value is a mystery, the 2018 Everybody Wins bag was valued at $250,000.
