Not so bad to be Oscars losers. Even they didn’t go home empty-handed. Now, traditionally Oscars losers will receive a modest gift bag. This year’s consolation bags are valued at $80,000 and are gift by US company Distinctive Assets, who is also responsible for the gift bags and celebrity lounges of the Grammys and the Emmys. Not bad, since last year’s were more modest – $45,000 and in 2011, that amount was $75,000. With five nominees categories – Best Actor/Actress, Supporting Actor/Actress and Director, and therefore four losers in each of those category, that comes out to $1.6 million dollars worth of swag.
Some of the items can be interesting to losers celebrity such as vacation packages to Hawaii, the Canadian Rockies ($6,850) , Las Vegas, Mexico, Japan ($15,000) or a face-to-face meeting with Boyz II Men in Las Vegas worth $9,000, various spa and therapy services worth $7,455 and stays at a variety of resorts valued at $5,300.
Of course there are a plenty of other less usefull gifts including pet products ($7,706) or Krystal Klear Water’s whole house water filtration system ($4,895), and not to forget a vaginal rejuvenation procedure ($2,700), and a hair restoration surgery ($16,000).
And there are a plenty of unnecessary trinkets such as $280 worth of pure organic maple syrup, salad dressings, jellies, mustard, and an apron. But that’s not all! Each star will receive an adoption certificate of a maple tree in Notre-Dame-Des-Bois. But, hey, they’re losers!
