As Ellen DeGeneres pointed out during last night's ceremony, Meryl Streep has been nominated for an Oscar so many times (18 to be exact), that it's probably cost hundreds of thousands of dollars for her to attend. Even when she loses, however,she can make most of that money back in the form a super swanky gift bag.

This year all of the nominees will receive a $85,000 swag bag filled with 50 gifts worth anywhere from $6.50 to $16,000 in the "'Everyone Wins at the Oscars' Nominee Gift Bag."

Most of the big ticket items in the consolation prize are fantasy trips, ranging from the luxurious to the downright kitschy. Here's a look at them all:

· $3,300 resort stay at the Imanta's Ocean Casa suite in Mexico

· $6,850 two-day Rocky Mountaineer train excursion from Vancouver to Alberta in the Canadian Rockies

· A $9,000 trip to Las Vegas including a VIP tour of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, a $75 gift certificate to Hash House a Go Go, a dozen cupcakes from The Cupcakery, 2 tickets to NBA Summer League, a meet and greet with Boyz II Men, a 2-night stay in The Riviera's Penthouse Suite, and more.

· $2,000, five-night stay at the Koloa Landing Resort in Hawaii

· $15,000 walking tour of Japan
