    I think it's obscene and indeed: it's the wrong group that's getting this shit; the ones that are already pampered to death, ugh.

    "$300 shopping spree from women’s clothing company Belldini."

    Is $300 really a "shopping spree" to these people?
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    "Jewelry by Farm Wife Style $25" isn't going to make it out of the bag.

    Why should they be ashamed? The stars didn't ask for these girt bags.

    They could refuse them because they don't need them or give them to charity. Instead, we've seen more than one gift bag per person walking out.

    No, we have not seen that at the Oscars. There are other events where they have swag tents and allow people to take crap. These bags are only given to the nominees in the top categories. The companies donate their stuff for publicity. The actors may very well refuse the gift bags, or donate them, as they will pay a gift tax on what they keep.

    There was a story here several years ago, about Sundance Film Festival I think, where celebs like Paris Hilton took other people into the SWAG tents to grab stuff. Or maybe it was Lohan??

    I realise it's all for advertising but these people just don't need it. What do they care about gift tax? They are loaded and everything is comped at the Oscars anyway.

    No it's not all comped. They will be assessed a gift tax. No one wants a tax assessment for products they don't even want. These bags are not meant to entice celebrities. They are there in hopes of winning an Oscar, not getting a bag of products they don't care about. This is a stupid promo put together by organizers to get more attention for the show which has been falling in ratings. I guess we are all supposed to say "ohhhh, they are so lucky to get all that stuff." The actors from the 4 categories getting the stuff don't care, but I'll bet you that millions have now googled vampire breast lifts....

    Well, I don't think they care. I meant the gowns, the hair, the makeup, the hotels, the entertainment, the food and drinks and so on. It's the seasonal jamboree with snouts in the trough as usual. Maybe one year, someone will make a public donation.

    Two first-class tickets to Israel with a 10-day stay at a five-star hotel. Includes meals, transportation and a private security escort, $55,00
    Not exactly the moment to visit that part of the Middle East... I would stay close to my security escort.
