This year's Oscar nominated actors and directors will receive a curated gift set of gourmet, hand-harvested dates from UAE-based luxury dates and gifts brand Bateel’s organic farm in the Al Ghat region of Saudi Arabia.

The gift set is part of the legendary 'Everyone Wins' nominee gift bag, presented to select Oscar-nominated actors and directors in celebration of the popular Hollywood award show, which will take place on March 12 this year.
