Oscar Losers Take Home Close To $100,000 In Consolation Prizes

Oscar losers get giftsSure everyone wants that little gold statuette on Oscar night, but the consolation prize ain’t too shabby either.

“Non-winners”, aka losers, in the Best Actor, Best Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, and Best Director categories receive a huge gift basket worth nearly $100,000.

Goodies include wine, chocolates, watches, fashion accessories, beauty products, spa treatments, and even luxury holiday packages.

I guess that explains why they’re always smiling even when their name doesn’t get called out.
