Here’s What Was Inside The $100,000 Oscars Goodie Bag That Saoirse Ronan Took Home


She may not have taken home the Oscar for Best Actress, but Saoirse Ronan struck gold with a goodie bag that was given to her simply for being nominated, and to be honest, it sounds better than winning an actual Oscar.

Awarded to several different nominees under the different categories at this year’s Oscars, Saoirse Ronan was among those to receive an incredible bag of goodies worth more than $100,000.

The bag of freebies was given to nominees who didn’t manage to bag the Oscar by Distinctive Assets, a Los Angeles based marketing company.

According to Forbes, all brands wishing to have a product featured in the bag must pay a promotional fee of $4,000, but it’s definitely worth it with the level of exposure the goodies receive.

Among the freebies in this years goodie bag was a trip to Hawaii, a DNA testing kit, ten personal training sessions and a 12-night trip to Zanzibar and Tanzania.


And if that wasn’t enough, there was also a week’s worth of spa treatments, a week-long stay at San Diego’s Golden Door Spa, and a levitating Bluetooth speaker included in the bag. 

Aaaand that’s not all, the following items were also included: 

  • a commitment from Jarritos iconic Mexican soda to donate a pallet of soft drinks to a charitable event of the nominee’s
