It is reported that Nominees who don’t win in the Best Actor/Actress, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor/Actress categories are arranged to get runner-up prizes. They are making sure that everyone wins something that night, even if they lose the Oscars.
Actors like Leonardo DiCaprio, Amy Adams, Matthew McConaughey, etc are in the Nominees list.
What In The Box For The Nominees?
10,000 meals of Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres’ Halo natural pet food to donate to the animal shelter of their choice and a wine and chocolate flight pairing. They have also included watches, bracelets, luxury holidays to the Canadian Rockies, Mexico and Japan, teas and spa treatments, blah blah.
Distinctive Assets founder Lash Fary said, “To be part of the film industry’s biggest night on any level is thrilling. 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.”
But on a serious note, Oscar is the real award, not the money or gifts. We all waiting for a specific actor to get this award, lets wait till March 2nd. It is kind of Company Distinctive Assets to arrange such gifts to make all personalities ‘even’ that day.
