Stars stopped by Ancestry's booth to receive an AncestryDNA kit and as exciting as that is, I'm not sure celebrities want just anyone gathering their DNA. That aside, it's great they were there to spread the message and maybe spark some interest.
I think their hard work must have paid off, because this showed up on my AncestryDNA homepage this morning.
All kidding aside. Here are some serious stats regarding this year's Oscar gift bag:
- Total value: $168,000
- Recipients: nominees for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director and the host -- this year it's Neil Patrick Harris.
- Regardless of whether they keep it, refuse it or donate it the stars pay taxes on their gift bag. (Source: Vanity Fair)
