The Oscars are happening on Sunday, and while Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are desperate to get their paws on the gong for Best Picture, we imagine they are equally excited to rustle through the legendary goody bag.

Every year the top Oscar nominees (25 across acting and directing) receive swag bags that have included gifts from luxury holidays and eye-wateringly expensive jewellery.

This year, there will also be a choice of a boat tour down the Amazon or a trip to the Galapagos Islands, and a week in a California spa worth over Dhs36,000, expensive jewellery, personal training sessions and all the make-up and beauty products you could ever need.

Other than Gaga and Cooper - who will perform a live duet of their hit song “Shallow” from “A Star is Born” - Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz will also get in on the action.

This year's ceremony has also made headlines by not using a host for the first time in nearly three decades. Instead, producers will select a crop of A-Listers to introduce various segments, reports say.

Bring on the weekend.
