Oscar nominees receive this generous $100K swag bag which includes a 12-night Tanzania trip!

This marketing company makes sure Oscar losers don't go home empty-handed

For the past 16 years, Distinctive Assets has rewarded Oscar nominees a lavish assortment of freebies, ranging from vibrators to all-inclusive vacations to diamond jewelry, according to Forbes

This year, the swag bag includes a 12-night Tanzania trip for two, plus a 7-day Hawaii trip! 

Well, damn!
The Tanzania package from International Expeditions is the most expensive gift, costing more than $40,000, according to Forbes. The journey includes spa services, a private safari guide, wild game drives and a hot air balloon safari with champagne breakfast.

The "Everyone Wins" Nominee Gift Bags are sent to all 25 nominees in the acting and directing categories in the week leading up to the Oscars ceremony, which include Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep this year. 
The participating companies donate all the items and have to pay a promotional fee of at least $4,000 to have their products included with hopes they can use these celebrities as sponsors, Forbes reports.
The only downside is: these celebrities have to report the swag bag as income to the IRS. But, they make enough money, so I'm sure these celebs will be fine. 
The 90th Academy Awards take place today (March 4) at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and will air at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
