Welp, this is nice consolation: Apparently, losers in the Best Actor/Actress, Supporting Actor/Actress, and Director categories at the Academy Awards are going to get a swag bag of free stuff worth a massive total of $80,000. The gifts range from weird, to useful, to not exactly a gift. Us Weekly has important 411 on the contents: Hydroxycut, some outrageously expensive maple syrup, vaginal rejuvenation, a trip to Las Vegas with a Boyz II Men meet and great, and a home spa system.

The best part, though, as Buzz60 points out: Oscar host Ellen Degeneres' pet food company, Halo, is giving away 10,000 meals for each losing nominee to donate to an animal shelter of their choice. 
The 86th Academy Awards will air on ABC on March 2 at 7pm.
