Special Edition PEBL for Oscar nominees

Marc Perton

In addition to getting a shot at one of those little statues, some Oscar nominees are getting a little something extra from Motorola in their swag bags this year: a special-edition, gunmetal-gray PEBL, along with an H700 Bluetooth headset and three months of service from T-Mobile, all wrapped in a stylish custom-made keepsake box suitable for display or auctioning on eBay. Unfortunately, if you've been nominated for, say, sound mixing -- or even screenwriting -- you're out of luck. The only noms who rate are those up for Best Director, Best Actor/Actress and Best Supporting Actor/Actress. Rumor is the rest of the nominees will get leftover ROKRs and $5 iTunes gift cards tossed in a brown paper bag.
