celebrities love red wine, white teeth, and tiny dogs

usa today reports that every presenter at the 62nd golden globe ceremony (which takes place tomorrow) will receive "goodies" worth more than $37,000 - not bad for a 3 minute introduction. the products are chosen by in style magazine and the hollywood foreign press association. the gifts are "contained in a custom wicker ottoman"and include:

  • An Australian wine adventure package with first-class Qantas airfare and accommodation at Rosemount Estate, where guests will create their own wine: $16,000.
  • Brite Smile teeth whitening: $1,100 (useful after all that red wine)
  • A sitting with portrait photographer Judy Host: $5,000
  • Ehrlooms diamond pendant: $2,700
  • Ferre travel bag: $650
  • Godiva chocolates: $125
and there's also something for the presenters' canine companions:
  • Janet Lee dog tote: $400.
  • and a $500 gift certificate for clothing from jackrocketwear ("a couture dog clothing line") and doggie spa products
judging from the style of the dog-related "goodies", one may conclude that actors will smith and jada pinket smith, who share their home with 4 rottweilers, and jake gyllenhaal, who has a shepherd mix (and a puggle), will not be among the presenters.
