Yes, losing is a bummer.
And yes, it really is an honor to just be nominated.
But what's even better is going home with a ton of free stuff.
We're talking spa treatments, walking tours of Japan and a lifetime TiVo subscription. Here are two of this year's biggest grab bags.
Oscar nominees can take home the Distinctive Assets' Everyone Wins at the Oscars® giftbag, which has no affiliation with the actual official event honoring the film industry's finest. But if you made the cut and got a nomination, you can wind up with $55,000 worth of Swiss-made Slow Watches, Jan Lewis Designs bracelets, deluxe vacation packages to the Canadian Rockies, Mexico and Japan, assorted teas and various spa treatments.
The day before the Oscars, Independent Spirit Awards nominees and attendees can walk out with Breyers Gelato Indulgences (who cares about the waistline, right?), a one-year supply of Dark Horse wine, New Balance sneakers, the new TiVo Roamio Plus with lifetime service, a Crunch membership and a DJI Phantom 2 Vision flying camera.
