Distinctive Assets
  • Stars Get All This for FREE?!

    This year's Academy Award winners got an Oscar; the losers, a $75,000 gift bag. The day after the awards, gifting company Distinctive Assets sent a load of goods to each of the trophy-less nominees as a consolation prize. Some of the bag's most expensive items include a $12,000 trip to Belize, a $16,000 all-inclusive getaway to a luxury resort in the Maldives and a $5,000 week-long fitness retreat. Other swag: watches from Kim Kardashian' s watch collection, a leather iPad case, and of course, chocolate.
