Oscar ‘Losers’ Become Winners with Distinctive Assets Gift Bags

What’s a measly Oscar statue when you can have a swag bag worth more than $55,000?

That’s the value of what this year’s Oscar “losers” in the best actor/actress, supporting actor/actress and director categories will be taking home, thanks to Distinctive Assets’ Everybody Wins gift bags.

The “losers” will be able to enjoy a wine/chocolate flight pairing from Chicago-based Chocolatines. They will also be able to donate 10,000 meals of Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres’ Halo natural pet food to the animal shelter of their choice.

“To be part of the film industry’s biggest night on any level is thrilling,” Distinctive Assets founder Lash Fary said. “We always look forward to introducing celebrities to an array of companies with fabulous gifts to share, but it’s particularly fun to be able to do so when you know it will truly brighten someone’s day.”

Other items include Swiss-made Slow Watches; Jan Lewis Designs bangle bracelets; luxury vacation packages to the Canadian Rockies, Mexico and Japan; teas; and spa treatments (so they can recover from the chocolate/wine flight pairing).

Note: The Academy does not endorse the swag bags. Because they will not be distributed at any Academy-sponsored event, the Academy is unsure how the “losers” will receive them.
