(WPRI) - It's the grand finale of Awards Season, the Oscars.
While a select few will have a shiny gold statuette to place on their mantle, those nominees who go home empty handed won't have to settle for the rationalization that it was an honor just to be nominated; they will be 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 judging by the response from Hugh Jackman, Meryl Streep, Angela Bassett, Dame Helen Mirren, Ron Howard and Jeremy Renner, it has been working!
"To be part of the film industry's biggest night on any level is thrilling," says Distinctive Assets' founder Lash Fary. "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. This is always one of the best gift assortments we create...and certainly one of the most valuable."
