Sweet Oscar Swag

2/18/2007 2:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

With Oscar night just around the corner, there's only one other thing on the minds of nominees -- the swanky swag they're gonna nab on awards night! Win or lose, the evening will be sweetened by a plush one of a kind leather duffel bag from designer Gina Alexander.
Swag bag
Alexander, famous for putting the stars' faces on the bags they carry, was commisioned to create the swanky bag for the nominees -- and it's emblazoned with images from the most memorable movies of the year.

The sack retails for a colossal $2500! Whatever the Oscar outcome, this is still a nice prize.

Celebrities, remember: PAY YOUR TAXES on this item!!!!!!!!! This *IS* considered a source of taxable income and you *MUST* declare it! Let's not have any of last year's gaffs.

I'm sure Elton John will rest easy that his design has (((not))) caused any complications.

That bag rocks!!! I went on the www.ginaalexander.com site
and saw that each bag helps abused children. And that Oprah has 5 bags of her own with pictures of her cute pups...

Wow, an ugly bag with pictures all over it. But it is big enough to smuggle popcorn and candy into the movies at least. Ifthis was at walmart we would all be making fun of how tacky fugly it is. Amazing what passes for taste in Hollywood.

The bag is tacky looking.

The article also states that Alexander is "famous for putting the stars' faces on the bags they carry." THAT is tacky too.

All the money that is wasted in Hollywood on stars while there are children dying of starvation and our soldiers are dying fighting someones elses war because the government (who sends them over to fight) is finacially strapped is appalling!!!

Why it would retail for more than a decent collagen injection is beyond my reason. It's anti-glamour in one of the globe's more glamorous events. I hope that was the point? Tinseltown's decisioning logic carries no comparison. And neither does this bag...

Obviously the stars get this tacky bag for free right? Now the question is who in their right mind would ever consider shelling out money for this f*ugly bag?!!!! Oh yeah like I really can imagine Eddie Murphy or Leonardo DiCaprio giving this crap bag to their girlfriend!
