Video: Consolation Prize

At the Oscars, even the losers go home with nice prizes. The Wall Street Journal reports that top nominees at this year’s Oscars received gift bags valued at $178,000:


Much of the value in these bags is in offers such as:

  • Free stays at luxury hotels
  • Home remodelling
    • PM: Not a bad consolation prize for those that don’t win.
      • No wonder actors are always saying “It’s an honour just to be nominated.”
