About The Oscars’ Goodie Bag Tradition

Oscars have long held the tradition of giving goodie bags to the hosts and nominees of the categories of “Best Actor”, “Best Actress”, “Best Director”, “Best Supporting Actor”, and “Best Supporting Actress.”

Of course, the recipients have the option of refusing the gift bags. The actor Denzel Washington, last year, refused his goodie bag. JK Simmons auctioned his goodie bag and donated the money to a charity. George Clooney also did the same in 2006.

It should also be noted that though the recipients are given the goodie bags for free, they still have to pay the taxes that are applicable on receiving the goodie bags.
