While it’s always an honor just to be nominated, we know even the biggest stars will surely be disappointed if they go home from the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards empty handed! So a company called Distinctive Assets will once again soften that blow with award-worthy gifts for the non-winning nominees in the eight major acting categories (Outstanding Lead Actor/Actress in a Drama; Outstanding Lead Actor/Actress in a Comedy; Outstanding Supporting Actor/Actress in a Drama; and Outstanding Supporting Actor/Actress in a Comedy).
These consolation gifts will be delivered on August 30, 2010 (the day after the awards telecast of course.)
Here’s some of the stuff that went to the losers :
Altoids SMALLS One-Year Supply: ($70.00) Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company. No comment needed.

Ful (pronounced (fuel) Load Runner Duffel: ($120.00) We took this out for a test drive and the inline skate system had us doing wheelies. We also liked the multi-compartment storability and the retractable trolly handle.
