  Terrifier 2 has genuinely been submitted for Oscars consideration We can only imagine Art the Clown's acceptance speechYes, you read that right. The new chapter in the indie, vomit-inducing franchise on bloodthirsty killer Art the Clown is in the run for a golden statue. Potentially, that is.

Though there’s not an official Oscars gift bag — that were thrown out because of tax concerns in 2006 — marketing firm Distinctive Assets puts together unofficial “Everyone Wins” nominee gift bags and delivers them to nominees in the major categories. This year, they’re not revealing how much it’s worth beyond the general six figures, but Insider notes that the 26 bags will be worth more than $100,000 (almost £75,000) each.
