Oscar nominees take home $45,000 ‘swag bag’


The $45,000 consolation prize “swag bag” should ease the pain for losing nominees. Contents include a $12,000 vacation to Australia, a $5,000 “vampire facelift,” and a five-day stay on the south shore of Kauai in Hawaii. Losers can also choose one week at a luxury weight loss retreat or a bottle of Bonita Platinum tequila.
