Oscar Losers will get $55,000 worth of gift bags

Okay I wouldn't mind losing an Oscar, just need to get nominated first

IMAGINE being nominated for an Oscar and losing.  
 
It would suck right?

As soon as the announcement is made you have to smile and pretend that you’re delighted for the winner even though you probably want to harm them physically.

But thankfully, the blow of losing will be softened this year by $55,000 gift bags that the runners up in the best actor/actress, supporting actor/actress and director categories will receive.

Here’s what they get according to Variety:  

Luxury vacation packages to the Canada, Mexico and Japan

Swiss-made Slow Watches

Spa treatments

Jan Lewis Designs bangle bracelets

10,000 meals of Ellen DeGeneres’ Halo natural pet food which they can donate to an animal shelter of their choice

Wine filled chocolates from Chocolatines

A selection of teas

Sounds pretty good right? Not as good as an Oscar

Didn't George speak out against this type of swag?

The one swag bag I remember him auctioning off raised $40,000+ for charity.  I don't believe he's ever kept one. And several stars have followed his actions.

Yes. He says he never takes them and the ones he gets he auctions off.
