Since 2002, Lash Fary, Founder of Distinctive Assets, has provided a yearly Nominee Gift Bags delivered to Oscar® nominees in the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director categories.
The legendary “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags, have created quite a buzz, evolving to suit the unique circumstances that shaped this year’s awards ceremony. The nominees celebrated during Hollywood’s biggest night – A-listers like Daniel Kaluuya, Olivia Colman, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Riz Ahmed, Viola Davis, Andra Day and Carey Mulligan – were treated to these congratulatory gifts with purpose.
“While the end result may look at first glance like the same cornucopia of fabulous gifts we always assemble, this year’s contents are particularly special,” says Fary. “The companies we are featuring embrace diversity, inclusion, health and philanthropy and are giving back to their communities and the world at large in significant ways.”
“While this gift bag does, as always, have an impressive six-figure value, that is neither our focus nor goal. A great gift has nothing to do with a price tag,” continues Fary. “This year’s Everyone Wins gift bag is one of my favorites we have ever assembled because it represents a lot more than just a bag full of free stuff. I am truly excited for the nominees to experience it.”
See below for a full list and description of each item included in this year’s “Everyone Wins” Nominee Gift Bags that were given to Oscar® nominees:

C60 PURPLE POWER
Win the battle for your health with C60 Purple Power, the ultimate antioxidant protection. Carbon 60 (C60) is a selective antioxidant that supports immune function and works at the cellular level to lift the oxidative burden and eliminate free radicals from the cells, resulting in a decrease in inflammation in the body. By reducing inflammation, C60 may help reduce pain and other inflammatory conditions. C60 has also been found to increase stem cell production and may reduce the signs of aging. Additionally, C60 can help restore hormone levels. It does this by increasing the production of pregnenolone, the precursor molecule to all hormones. There are many health benefits of Carbon 60, and that is because C60 fights oxidative damage at the cellular level, allowing the body to heal itself. Most users report an increase in energy and mental clarity after 30 days of daily use.
