We know that nominees like Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio are worth a pretty penny, but their salaries are nothing compared to the amount of money that goes into the biggest night in cinema. And guess what? Even though these A-listers can afford pretty much whatever they want, they’re still treated like queens and kings on Oscars night.

From the $200,000 goodie bag to the after parties, stars celebrate their golden statue in style. But all those parties, dresses, shoes, and more cost more than you can even imagine. And if you thought that was bad, don’t even think about advertisements. It will cost brands $1.9 million to air a 30-second commercial during the 2016 Academy Awards broadcast, and the campaign to win Best Picture costs a subtle $10 million.

With the 2016 Oscars airing this weekend, Community Tax broke the awards ceremony down by the dollars, and it’s pretty mind blowing. Check out just how much putting together the event – from the red carpet to the after parties – costs in the infographic below.
