GLOtoSLEEP™ Masks Assure Non-Winning Nominees Get A Winning Night's Sleep After Oscars® Night

Share Article

In its spectacular American debut, the glotosleep(tm) mask is sent to Oscars® Night runner-ups to assure a drug-free sleep by combining ancient wisdom with modern technology to clear their minds quickly relax their bodies and get to sleep naturally.

Today, as the afterglow of the 2008 Oscars® leaves behind a host of tired celebrities, proudly announced that the very first "GLO TO SLEEP™" masks, available in the U.S., were delivered to the non-winning nominees in the five principal categories in the 2008 Oscars® as part of their "Everybody Wins at the Oscars®" gift bags. Manufactured in California, from hypoallergenic materials, the GLOtoSLEEP ™ mask induces a natural drug-free sleep in the wearer, as the eyes focus upwards on pairs of blue luminous points inside the mask; the mind automatically shifts from active beta waves to relaxing, pre-sleep alpha waves.

Recipients of an ongoing good nights sleep, courtesy of the GLOtoSLEEP™ mask, were Best Actor Nominees: George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Tommy Lee Jones, and Viggo Mortensen; Best Supporting Actor Nominees: Casey Affleck, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Hal Holbrook and Tom Wilkinson; Best Supporting Actress Nominees: Cate Blanchett, Julie Christie, Laura Linney and Ellen Page and Best Actress Nominees: Ruby Dee, Saoirse Ronan and Amy Ryan. Cate Blanchett will get a 'doubly' good night's rest, as she received two masks for being nominated for both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. Directors Julian Schnabel, Jason Reitman, Tony Gilroy and Paul Thomas Anderson, as well as host Jon Stewart, are also in for a season of restful mellowness as recipients of GLOtoSLEEP™.

Possibly the most unusual item in the Gift Bag, because, at first glance it looks like an ordinary sleep mask, but it is so much more, because it is truly the 'gift of sleep' - and a healthy night's sleep at that. The GLOtoSLEEP™ inventor, and co-founder of its Canadian developers, Line 49 Inc., was an oil rig engineer, lucky to get two hours of unbroken sleep a night, so necessity became the driving force behind the sleep mask. Unique and patented, the mask's outer fabric is breathable, super-soft super-light foam, which blocks out all light and is custom-made in Europe exclusively for the product. It is extremely comfortable against the skin and suitable for even those with extreme environmental sensitivities and has an adjustable Vel-Stretch® strap.

"We are pleased to be able to give the 'gift of a natural night's sleep' to this select group of actors after what must be the most exhausting night of their year - OSCAR® night," said Mackeonis for, the exclusive US distributor of the GLOtoSLEEP™ mask. "Because the world is 'on' 24/7, our brains are on too, constantly being bombarded with stimulus - computer screens, blackberries, cell phones, iPods, TV, lights, not to mention our jobs - people just can't turn off at night when they want to. Actors have the added complexity of needing to be on the set all hours of the day and night, with only a few hours to devote to sleep, which may not come as easily as they'd like, until now," concluded Mackeonis.

The GLOtoSLEEP™ mask has been available in the UK and Europe since 2005 and is now making its debut in the United States at the Oscars® in Los Angeles. The GLOtoSLEEP™ mask retails for $64.95.
