If there’s one thing that makes average people jealous of the rich and famous, it’s awards show gift bags. Okay, that’s not the one thing, but it rubs salt in the wound. What we don’t realize is that most of what’s in those bags is the sort of useless crap that no one would ever want to buy. And now these big-time celebrities have scads and scads of this useless crap lying around their mansions, waiting to be re-gifted.

The Guardian has created a run-down of the worst Oscar gift bag gifts of the last decade-and-change, and there is some tremendous crap in here. Here are a few of the lowlights:

As The Guardian points out, everyone in the world has had half a bottle of the stuff on top of their fridge since the ’90s. No one needs $15,000 worth of this stuff.
