Don’t feel sorry for the Academy Award nominees who don’t walk away with an Oscar on Sunday evening – they will be waking up the next day with $45,000 worth of free swag.
Distinctive Assets has created a fabulous consolation prize for the nominees that don’t win, with an array of eye-popping gifts to help mend their broken hearts.
Losing nominees can consider their next career move while enjoying a $12,000 trip to Australia. They will have a choice between two between two luxury destinations Down Under: Lizard Island or El Questro Homestead.
If Australia seems too far for these frazzled losing nominees, they can always pop across the pond and get the VIP service for dignitaries and Heads of State at Heathrow Airport, which is valued at $1,800.
There is always the option of a $4,100.00, one week all-inclusive trip to a fitness and weight loss retreat, or a $ 3,000.00, three-night stay at the AAA-Five-Diamond St. Regis Punta Mita, including daily breakfast, massages at Remède Spa, fine dining at Carolina restaurant.
You could, of course, also opt to take the 5-night accommodations in a two bedroom luxury villa on the South Shore of Kauai, worth $2,000.
And if award season left the stars feeling tired, and they spotted the emergence of facial lines, they should fear not – they’ll be brand spanking new with a $5,000 Vampire Facelift, and they will be in great shape with a $850 package of 10 personal training sessions at Huntley Drive Fitness.
As Founder/CEO of Distinctive Assets, Lash Fary says, the stars will have a lot to distract themselves with the morning after the Academy Awards.
“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. Even Hollywood’s most acclaimed stars are disappointed over this particular loss, and when our consolation gift shows up the next day we like to think it is welcome distraction,” she tells Celebzter.
