Stars get Oscars swag — and so do the fans

At the Academy Awards, even the bleacher bums get a swag bag.

No, their bags aren’t crammed with expensive designer jewelry or gift certificates for lavish vacations.

But each person lucky enough to score lottery tickets to the bleachers lining the red carpet at Sunday’s Oscar show received a bag containing a pair of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate granola bar, items likely to send them home sugar-shocked as well as star-struck.

The dark gray bags, emblazoned with the words ‘‘I Am An Academy Awards Bleachers Fan,’’ also held a container of L’Oreal moisturizing lotion, a tube of Aveeno lip balm and a disposable camera.
