Oscar Swag: Inside The Distinctive Assets 70K Nominee Gift Bag


It was the grand finale of Awards Season . . . It was Hollywood’s Biggest Night . . . It was the Oscars and SWAG was abound!  Last night, only a select few went home with shiny gold statuettes to place on their mantel.  But no nominee spent the morning after empty handed.   Winners and non-winners alike were all consoled in the most Hollywood of ways:  SWAG.  Distinctive Assets’ annual “Everyone Wins at the Oscars” Nominee Gift Bag was created ten years ago to soften the blow of the post-Oscar-loss-blues and arrived at each nominees house or hotel this morning.  And judging by the previous year’s response from Hugh Jackman, Meryl Streep, Angela Bassett, Dame Helen Mirren, Ron Howard and Jeremy Renner, it’s been working!

Even if this year’s nominees Viola Davis, Michelle Williams, and George Clooney didn’t win an Oscar, they can at least cross “elephant back safari” off their bucket list thanks to the $15,000 nominee gift provided by Premier Tours.

In addition to the fabulous safari, this year’s nominee gift bag was once again an eclectic fusion of fun, fabulous and functional items meant to titillate and indulge those who may have everything but still relish receiving a present.  (And I’m sorry, Ham Nolan, who doesn’t?)  The 2012 Everyone Wins at the Oscars Nominee Gift Bag was valued in excess of $70,000 and included the following: 

A one-of-a-kind bejeweled instant hand sanitizer from Purell
