Seeing the Golden Globe Awards last night reminded me that there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes. Why do you think all those stars show up?
An episode of “The Sopranos” last year featured Ben Kingsley walking through one of the swag bag rooms, picking up celebrity giveaways valued at thousands of bucks. Christopher, Tony’s nephew, later mugged Lauren Bacall to grab her swag bag.
One company called SwagTime.com specializes in hosting swag bag parties for the Golden Globes, Spike TV Video Game Awards 2006, VH1 Big in ’06 Awards,
2006 VH1 Hip Hop Honors, and more. In their Swag Bag room for the Golden Globes, for example, celebs can pick up stuff like custom shirts, gourmet restaurants, trendy home accessories, and more. Plus, after the event, you can purchase these same upscale gifts!
Who got the swag last night? Leonardo DiCaprio, Neil Patrick Harris, Forest Whitaker, Kevin Dillon, Masi Oka, Charlie Sheen, Andrea Bowen, Camryn Manheim, Daniel Dae Kim, Gregory Itzin, James Pickens Jr., Mario Lopez, Seth Green, and Teri Polo.
Another company, Distinctive Assets, says it has “the perfect gift for every occasion.” It maintains an elite list of corporate and entertainment clients by providing them with unusual, creative and interesting gifts. See the who, what, why and where of some swag bag events occur right here.
