Oscar statuetteSo you thought life was fun being a Hollywood star?

You would be absolutely right. And if you are an Oscar nominee, life couldn't get better.

Not only do you win the gold statuette, but this year, it is a haul for the acting category nominees, says USA Today. Get a load of this: each nominee gets a Manolo Blahnik leather overnight bag with matching suede sandals, a Hermes cashmere shawl, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne and a pair of Baccarat crystal earrings. All this is courtesyEstee Lauder.

There's more. The Best Actress nominees will get a jewelled pink bra-and-panty set from Victoria's Secret worth $7,000. Variety reports thatthe Best Actor Director and Picture nominees will walk away with gift vouchers that include an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas's Caesar's Palace, a coupon for laser eye surgery, and gold accented Havaianas flip flops.
