PARTING GIFT No gift bag, but Emmy runner-up Lauren Ambrose got this consolation prize from Wanda Sykes

Emmy losers Matt LeBlanc and Sarah Jessica Parker got a consolation prize – along with other presenters, they received a gift bag worth $30,000, according to the Associated Press. The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences called the bags a ''generous thank you,'' and they weren't kidding. Among the prizes inside were a mattress (well, presumably a gift certificate for one), a DVD player, a watch, and a cellular phone. Attendees also got gift certificates for a dinner party, trips to various spas and resorts, and a year's worth of makeup. With all the kissing going on at the ceremony, let's hope any lipstick included was smudge-proof.
