Don't feel bad for the so-called "losers" at this year's 85th Academy Awards. Reuters reveals that LA-based marketing firm Distinctive Assets has put together the annual "Everyone Wins at the Oscars Nominee Gift Bag," and it's filled with over $45,000 of goodies.
Celebzter has a thorough breakdown of the items, which include a $12,000 trip to Australia (one of the luxury destination choices is the picturesque Lizard Island, above), a 5-night stay on the South Shore of Kauai, a $4,000+ fitness retreat and a $5,000 Vampire Facelift, which sounds pretty intense.
Besides getaways and get-a-new-look services, the bag is also chock-full of random products, like a six-pack of Naked condoms, Gleener fuzz remover, baked candles and Windex. See the complete list here.
