Oscar Nominations Released, Bookmakers Taking Bets
By Staff
Some people bet on sports, some on blackjack. However, there is always a large betting market for the highlight of the cinematic year – the Academy Awards, aka the Oscars.

William Hill’s film expert has been making odds on the awards for years, and is right more often than not. He has successfully predicted who the Best Director statue will go to before it is announced.

“The biggest prizes have never looked as settled as they do this year,” a spokesman for the company said to a major London newspaper. “There are normally at least two contenders for each award but this year the favourites are all nailed on.”

Slumdog Millionaire is 2-7 to take the Best Picture award with 13-times-nominated The Curious Case of Benjamin Button at 4-1. Kate Winslet is 8-15 to pick up her first Oscar for The Reader – she broke records at age 22 for being the youngest actress to pick up two nominations so for her, a win is long overdue.
