Rachel Weisz

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.

Congratulations are in order!

Every year Vanity Fair treats us to it's Hollywood issue and calls in the top stars to feature on it's extended front cover.

The issue tends to come out just in time for the Oscars and usually features a number of the nominees for the top awards pictured all together by renowned fashion photographer Annie Liebovitz.

This years issue comes at an awkward time as rumblings of diversity issues are rippling through the film industry and the Academy Awards have vowed to make historic changes to the prestigious awards ceremony to tackle the problems. 

In an interesting move, editors decided to features only women on this year's cover and our very own Saoirse Ronan made the cut. 

Featured among the likes of relative newcomers Alicia Vikander and Brie Larson, also snapped are cinema stalwarts such as Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren. 

 

The main front cover of the issue went to Hollywood darling Jennifer Lawrence alongside Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis and Jane Fonda. 

Saorise is up for the award of Best Actress at this years ceremony for her turn in the film, Brooklyn.

It looks like Daniel Craig will be setting up home on the emerald isle, for a while at least.

The 007 star and his wife, Rachel Weisz, are looking to temporarily move to Ireland while Rachel films her latest movie The Lobster here. Production is to begin in Kerry but the couple will base themselves in the capital.

The English actor has already been on the lookout for a new pad and according to an insider, the couple “got in touch with the estate agent as early as last December to look for properties that match their criteria”.

Apparently, Daniel and Rachel are looking at homes in south of the city, in particular Dun Laoghaire, because “it’s by the seaside and out of the city centre, yet close enough if they want to get to the airport.”

The duo would want to get a move on though as Rachel starts filming in March. Weisz will be playing the lead role alongside our very own Colin Farrell.
