AMAZING goody bags containing gifts worth 100,000 dollars – more than £70,000 – will be handed to selected stars at tonight’s Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles.
The 75 gifts include everything from luxury holidays and beauty treatments to top-end food and drink for A-listers who can well afford such stuff themselves.
There was speculation that the same hyper-indulgent package will be on offer to those walking the red carpet at the 2021 Bafta Awards in London on February 14 next year.
However, after last Sunday’s virtue-signalling Baftas – where luvvies were asked to re-wear clothes or hire them in the name of sustainable fashion (although in the event there was not much sign of off-the-shoulder bin bags) – it’s been realised that conspicuous consumption of freebies might not go down well with fans.
So there’s been a rethink. And here we list tonight’s Hollywood goody bags alongside the ones that will be handed out at next year’s Baftas . . .
