The most glamorous awards in the business are scheduled for this Sunday, and excitement is building; mainly because we're GAGGIN' to see what's in the notorious goodie bags.

The annual Academy Awards are filled with prestigious Oscar statuettes and celebrities dressed to the nines, and the nominees famously receive ridiculously boujée gift bags.

Why, you ask? Apparently, they need trips to exotic countries and hand-made chocolate truffles as well as awards and haute couture red carpet looks.

Last year, apparently the swag bags were worth a whopping $40,000. 2019 seems a little bit more extra, and more 'down-with-the-kids.'

Apparently, the $100,000 goodie bags include chocolate truffles infused with cannabis this year, and are distributed to the 25 nominees in acting and directing. The speeches could be pretty loose…

California has recently legalised the drug for recreational use, so the nominees can calm their awards ceremony nerves.

The 2019 swag bags also feature skin care products infused with the drug (cannabis facial moisturiser anyone?) and a free membership of the first cannabis-friendly social club in LA.

Private “phobia relief" sessions with "the world's number one phobia expert" are also on offer as a freebie for the Hollywood stars, according to The Telegraph.

They can also decide between a boat trip down the Amazon or to the Galapagos Islands, and a week in a California spa. Oh, and a holiday at luxury villas in Halkidiki, Greece, as well as an invitation to Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico

A “Mister Poop" toilet plunger is also gifted, strangely, and up to $30,000 of treatments including fillers, botox and chemical peels at from Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich

The company who manufactures the chocolates warns anyone who is unused to cannabis to start low and go slow, instead of wolfing down the entire pack at once.

That'll be a hard one, considering the celebs barely eat for the entire day of the Oscars. This years' nominees including Glenn Close, Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, and Richard E Grant.

A company called Distinctive Assets are putting together the cannabis gifts this year, with the founder saying they decided to include them after the drug was legalised.

Lash Fary said: "This year, we are so excited about the legalisation of cannabis in California so we will be including a number of items in that category." Gowan, Lash, you mad scone.

Mr Fary added: "These are folks who have access to everything and can afford to buy anything they want, so we just want this to be fun for them. Hopefully we are also introducing them to some new brands and experiences they wouldn’t otherwise know about.”

Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon admitted in 2013 that she was high on cannabis at many Hollywood events; “I would say almost all, except the Oscars."

The 2019 Oscars ceremony is already facing controversy, after Kevin Hart dropped out as host.

Lady Gaga has spoken only the kindest words about Bradley Cooper, her talented Oscar nominated co-star and Oscar-snubbed director of A Star Is Born.

The nominations for the Academy Awards were announced on Tuesday, and while both actors earned nominations for Best Actor and Best Actress, Cooper was snubbed for Best Director. (More like ROBBED)

Bradley has been an unofficial favourite for multiple honours during awards season, but didn't receive the nod this time around, despite the film earning eight nominations overall.

The film was a remake of the classic movie about an ageing rock star and Jackson Maine, who falls in love with aspiring musician and muse, Ally. It was Cooper's first major project as a director, and he did a stunning job.

Lady Gaga told the Los Angeles Times after hearing of his Oscar snub that "at the end of the day, he knows that he’s the best director in my eyes, and in all of our eyes as his cast."

The singer has repeatedly told of how welcoming he was on set, and how he magically made the private, safe atmosphere perfect for the performer to shed her mask and dive into the difficult role of Ally.

Gaga is the favourite to take the award for Best Original Song home for their duet, Shallow.

The 32-year-old spoke of the unpredictability of awards season, saying; "You never know what’s going to happen."

The Grammy-winner said that Cooper was pleased as the film, his directorial debut, was well-represented in terms of the Academy Awards, despite not receiving the coveted Best Director nod. 

"I know that he’s so happy that we’ve all been nominated and that the film was recognised and we all feel really, really beyond elated for the recognition,' the Perfect Illusion singer told the publication.

Gaga is experienced in awards ceremonies herself, winning six Grammys out of 24 nominations, as well as a Golden Globe.  "There's really no award that is more esteemed than the Oscar in acting, and for music, it is also extremely special," she said.

"Since I was a little girl, I always admired all of the artists that put in so much hard work and passion into filmmaking. Watching the award shows, I used to cry with them."

'It was always like I felt like I was them, even though I wasn't there. It was always a big deal with my family," she stated. 

The singer, who is already achieving massive success with her Las Vegas residency Enigma, told The New York Times she overslept, and didn't hear the Oscar nominations being read that morning.

"I just burst into tears," Gaga told the Times. Congrats to Gaga and Bradley on their well-deserved nominations.

As for the Best Director gong, well… now he knows how every female director feels, every single year *sprinkles salt*

Lady Gaga may have only taken home one trophy instead of the two she deserved (Hello? Best Actress? Ally from A Star is Born? Hi?), but her fiancé just posted an image of her and it's a FULL MOOD.

The pop idol won the Best Song award for Shallow, alongside Mark Ronson and two other producers, and celebrated in the most down-to-earth way possible.

Gaga ate breakfast in bed at 12:30am, lounging in ultimate comfort while cosying up to her new award.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

what a rager.

Her fiancé Christian Carino captioned the picture; "What a rager."

They looked as loved up as ever during the awards show, with Lady Gaga losing out to Glen Close in the Best Actress category, despite being the favourite to win.

The duo didn't walk the red carpet together (sad face) but spent most of the ceremony as a couple, sharing a kiss afterwards and attending an after-party.

Rager is right, she looks like she's living her best life, and deserves it too.

We wonder what exact cereal she's eating…

We're just looking for that perfect breakfast to accompany all of our awards and accolades, you know?
