Lisa Gal, American and Australian businesses’ favorite product placement expert, participated in celebrity gifting for the SAG Awards on Sunday, January 30 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. Her company Hollywood Swag Bag gifted each nominee with a stuffed to the brim sleek Lug bag, filled with businesses’ top grade products.
A wide array of businesses can connect with Lisa to place their product in future bags. From tasty beverages such as Toast Vodka, Neuro Drinks and Cold Brew Kitchen coffees, delicious food products (Quest Nutrition bars, Susan Snaps, and SeaSnax), to high quality beauty essentials (Gloss & Toss hair serum, a Way Too Tan lotion, Kiehl’s products and gift cards, Profile4Men skincare, and Nuvsio Start Pure treatments), nominees had the chance to taste and try the products in the privacy of their hotel room.
Many other types of trendy brands and companies were included in the Hollywood Swag Bag this year. Adopted NYC offered a chic gold iPhone 6 case, Cold-EEZE included a sample of their remedy, and Tattered Designs shared a Begonia Blackwork Clutch. Move Makeup gifted a beautiful eyeshadow, Walton Wood Farm gave a Winter’s A Bitch Shower Retreat, Heartwood Creations gifted a gorgeous woodworking piece, Go Puck (Wearable Power) included a portable phone charger, Made With a Mission Candles provided a tranquil and heavenly candle, Garden of Life included a Vitamin C Spray, and ExposeYourselfPR offered their specialized services.
Catch the live show? The 2016 SAG Awards show was uniquely noteworthy. Typical Oscar buzz in the media each year speculates on which artist or ensemble will take home the coveted trophy and attain lifelong prestige, and debate the merit of each talent. The SAG Awards, intentionally or not, spoke their piece in the dialogue currently reigning the news- a lack of diversity seen in the list of twenty white nominees vying for an Oscar this year. Outraged celebrities and journalists have voiced dissent for the snubbing of highly qualified diverse candidates. The SAG Awards show honored nominees ignored by the Academy, including Idris Elba for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role in Beasts of No Nation, and Viola Davis for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series in How to Get Away With Murder. Queen Latifah summed up most actors thoughts well, when she said, “I have often been told I’m not thin enough, I’m not white enough, I’m not short enough, not man enough. Dammit, I am enough.” Every actor, regardless of race, should be given due credit for dealing with the cutthroat standards they have to meet, to make it in the industry…
