Academy Awards: Nominees to go home with gift bag worth $45,000
You shouldn’t feel too bad for the Oscar nominees that don’t win the prestigious award tonight. Even the losers go home with a gift bag worth more than $45,000.
After tonight the lifestyle of the rich and famous will be a little richer. Distinctive Assets, a Los Angeles based marketing firm, created the luxurious gift bags nominees will be taking home once the hoopla of the ceremony is over.
These gift bags are nothing like the party favors you took home after your classmate in the 4th grade’s birthday party.
The nominees will leave the ceremony with free swag ranging from trips to spa days. The big gift is a $12,000 trip to Australia, where they have a choice between two luxury destinations: Lizard Island or El Questro homestead.
They can also opt for a $4,100 one week all-inclusive trip to a fitness and weight loss retreat (how Hollywood, right?) or a $2,000, three-night stay at the AAA-Five-Diamond St. Regis Punta Mita, including daily breakfast, massages and fine dining.
Other odd gifts include a Vampire Facelift, worth $5,000, Naked Condoms (Does 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis also get these?), Bonita Platinum Tequila, bracelets that double as hair ties.

For all this free swag, we’re considering launching an acting career.
