For over two decades, Los Angeles-based marketing firm Distinctive Assets has taken it upon themselves to assemble the “Everyone Wins” consolation prize pack for the Academy Awards’ acting and directing nominees — something to soften the blow of losing that gilded statuette (or sweeten the evening for all the winners). And the 2024 Oscars gift bag is no less indulgent.

With more than 50 gifts totaling a whopping value of approximately US$178,000 (AU$270,000), similar to previous iterations of Hollywood’s most OTT party favour, the headliners are experiential.

Last year, it was a secluded getaway on a 10-acre Canadian estate — complete with a home theatre, outdoor pool, archery lane, catering from professional chefs, 1965 Shelby AC Cobra 427 Roadster, and McLaren Artura.

In 2024, it’s a luxurious all-inclusive Swiss getaway for up to 10 guests at Chalet Zermatt Peak, which is priced at US$50,000 (AU$75,000) alone.

Distinctive Assets has also thrown in a seven-day wellness retreat from the Golden Door, retailing for around US$24,000 (AU$36,000); a three-night stay in a private villa at Saint-Barth Paradise, plus quite an expensive performance from celebrity mentalist Dr Carl Christman.

“Obviously, [the nominees] can afford to go where they want,” Lash Fary, Founder of Distinctive Assets, once noted.

“It’s not about the fact that this is free. It’s about the fact that we’ve found a unique place that has built-in privacy for a celebrity.”
