Which would you rather have: an Oscar, or a ride on a space ship? Natalie Portman may have the first, but Annette Bening will get the second! According to the New York Post, the Academy Award nominees who walked away without a gold statue at Sunday's Oscars received some major consolation prizes. Here's what the likes of Jeff Bridges, Javier Bardem and Amy Adams received in their swag bags...
A space flight on Virgin Galactic, the airline that will offer sub-orbital flights to the public starting as soon as this year. (The flights include six minutes in anti-gravity -- whee!) Value: $200,000
Four nights at a luxury resort (which has an underwater spa!) in the Maldives. Value: $16,000
A vacation on a private island for five days, courtesy of (of course) APrivateIsland.com. Value: $12,000
Eye and neck cream made of caviar. Value: $200
Electronic cigarettes studded with Swarovski crystals. Value: $100
The six-figure consolation prize package also contained a one-week fitness retreat, a roll of $20 "Shimmer" toilet paper and some nasal spray. (No, not diamond-encrusted or made of caviar -- just nasal spray.)
Kind of gives new meaning to the word "loser," doesn't it?
