Only a few of this year's Oscar nominees will take home a statue, but many, many more will be taking home… a $250 bottle of maple syrup!?
Not everyone can walk away with a statue on Oscar night, but Distinctive Assets is seeing to that most folks at least get something to take home!
They've dubbed their consolation prize the "Everybody Wins at the Oscars" gift bag — it's an assortment of goodies that will be handed out to the also-rans, and it's valued at over $55,000!
Woo hoo! Sounds AMAZEBALLZ!

UPDATE: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has EXCLUSIVELY! assured us that they don't have a hand in the gift bags — their rep says they haven't "approved, endorsed, or sponsored" them.
In fact, considering the tax liability that may be involved, they aren't even sure whether the intended recipients would want a gift bag!
