Awards show gift baskets–What the stars are scoring as presenters and nominees

Posted on

In Annie Hall, an L.A.-locked Woody Allen exclaims: ”Awards! They do nothing but give out awards!” These days, Woody, it’s more like awards baskets. It turns out, no celebrity ever leaves a statue-fest empty-handed. In fact, the loot from the current awards-show circuit, which ranges from Rodeo Drive brand names to dime-store mints, could keep stars re-gifting for years. Here’s a peek at the perks du jour.

THE OSCARS
Worth: $8,500. Lots of black and silver, from a Tag Heuer watch to a Mont Blanc pen, ain’t too shabby. Recipients: Nominees and presenters like Brad Pitt.*

THE GOLDEN GLOBES
Worth: $6,700. For celeb with a 007 jones, includes a Fuji Digital Camera, a Casio palm-size PC, and sunglasses. Recipients included Charlize Theron.

THE NAACP IMAGE AWARDS
Worth: $4,000. Code word: Luxe. From a Tiffany ice bucket to Piper-Heidsieck Red Label champagne to a big tin of Altoids. Recipients included Halle Berry.

1ST ANNUAL HAIR & MAKEUP AWARDS
Worth: Over $1000. A makeup junkie’s heaven. Max Factor galore, plus cigars, coffee, and Calvin Klein eyewear fitted backstage. Recipients included Rob Lowe.

THE GRAMMY AWARDS
Worth: $5,000. A TUMI duffel with a Nokia cell, a Levy Restaurant candy apple, and more. Recipients included Will Smith (who had extra delights put in wife Jada’s bag).

SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARDS
Worth: Almost $5,000. Hipster meets minty-fresh, from Tommy Hilfiger jacket to Sonicare toothbrush — and Altoids. Recipients included Denzel Washington.
