Leesa Mattresses as Oscar Swag
As the pinnacle of the annual Hollywood awards show season, the Oscars has weathered its fair share of controversy over the years. From stars treating the ceremony podium as a pulpit for their various causes célèbre to divisive Best Picture winners and Nicole Kidman’s 1997 chartreuse dress, the esteemed annual event always seems to provide solid fodder for the next day’s water cooler conversations.
We stumbled on a different kind of Oscars fun fact this morning. This year’s swag bag includes more than $230,000 worth of free trips, services, and goodies, including a $55,000 excursion to Israel, a $5,500 laser skin-tightening treatment, a $45,000 jaunt to Japan, and a $275 roll of Swiss toilet paper (exactly what kind of black magic does this toilet paper provide for $275 per roll??).
