The day after Oscar's craziest, shocking moment ever, questions still linger about why "La La Land" was announced best picture when "Moonlight" was the true winner.

Inside the insane (non-official) Oscars gift bag: $40,000 trips, diamonds and custom crayons

The (unofficial) Oscar's swag bag is insane.

Lash Fary, who assembles the non-official Oscars gift bag, believes, emphatically, that “more is more” and fills his bags accordingly. There are things for kids: Customizable Crayola crayons, a children’s book, an electric scooter. There are less expensive items: A $2.99 protein bar, ChapStick, a CPR kit.

Plus a private stay at a mansion, a trip worth $40,000.


A detailed breakdown of the 2017 Oscar's gift bag.
