Oscar Nominees’ Gift Bag

Oscar Swag for the Lucky Losers

Not everyone can take home one of the highly coveted, gold statuettes at the 85th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday night. So what will the “glamorous losers” have to console themselves come Monday morning? The Everyone Wins at the Oscars Nominee Gift Bag will be delivered to the doorsteps of those eluded by Oscar in the categories of Best Actor/ Actress, Best Supporting Actor/Actress and Director. The bags are assembled by Distinctive Assets, the LA marketing firm founded by Lash Fairy. “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 that it will brighten someone’s day,” he remarked, reflecting on the response from past recipients, Hugh Jackman, Meryl Streep, and Ron Howard, to name a few.

This year’s nominee gift bag is valued at more than $45,000.00. The Hollywood A Listers who receive these gifts will truly feel like it is an honor just to be nominated:
