(Undated)  —  Win or lose at Sunday’s Oscars, nominees will not be leaving the ceremony empty handed.  “Variety” says all nominees in this Oscar’s acting and director categories will receive gift bags valued at more than 125-thousand-dollars  —  a 45-thousand-dollar increase from last year’s gift bag, which was only valued at 80-thousand-dollars.  This year’s pricey swag includes a luxury train ride through the Canadian rockies valued at 14-thousand-500-dollars; a three-night stay at a resort in Tuscany, valued at 15-hundred-dollars; one year of Audi A4 car rentals worth 20-thousand-dollars; as well as custom jewelry and candy and lifestyle makeover packages.  

One of the more unique items in this year’s Oscar gift bag is a 20-thousand-dollar gift certificate for a personal visit with Enigma Life founder Olessia Kantor.  According to the bag’s creator Distinctive Assets, Kantor will discuss horoscopes with each nominee, analyze dreams and teach them mind control techniques.
