Each year, the host of the Oscars and the losing nominees in five categories – Best Actor and Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Actress, and Best Director – receive a free gift bag from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. This year's bag is reportedly valued at $232,000, and includes such items as a vaporizer, a container of personalized M&Ms, a 15-day private walking tour of Japan, and something called a "vampire breast lift." But that's not all...
