The Golden Cosmos of Oscar’s Final Week

Nice gift bag if you can get it

The credit for the illustration crowning a feature about Oscar diversity in the Feb. 27 issue of The New Yorker (pictured) could not be more perfect. It reads: Golden Cosmos.

Golden Cosmos is the Berlin-based design duo of Doris Freigofas and Daniel Dolz. But in this case, their name also doubles as an apt description of the rarefied world of film awards season. A golden cosmos that is set for a final West Coast whirlwind beginning tonight.

It’s a universe of intimate dinners, glamorous parties and luxurious freebies. The 2017 Awards Season Gift Bag, set to be handed out to nominees and “select A-listers” at an undisclosed private Los Angeles residence, also befits the name of the celebrity gifting company that put it together, Madison & Mulholland. For it is indeed a way for companies to get their product in front of the ultimate product people.

This year’s Gift Bag is valued at $29,000 and includes a comped stay at the recently renovated Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor. The wine list for the new version of the 67-room inn was famously put together by Bright Lights, Big City author Jay McInerney.
