|With a host of award ceremonies about to take place the vast majority of online betting sites are offering punters the chance to gamble on their favourite films, stars and singers. The upcoming Oscar night is the obvious ceremony to place a bet on, but there are alternatives.|
At BetWWTS you can make wagers on the 45th Annual Grammy Awards taking place on Sunday in New York. The peoples’ favourite performer of the year will be announced at the event that is estimated to draw over two billion viewers.
The site, running for over ten years now, is currently accepting wagers on the following five categories: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording. BetWWTS will even let you place your bet just hours before the show starts at 8pm.
Another alternative is being offered by Intertops. This online sports book is giving punters the chance to gamble on the most critical awards ceremony going – the Golden Raspberry Awards. The 23rd Annual Razzie Awards take place a day before the Oscars, 14th of March. Contenders for Worst Picture so far include Britney Spears’ “Crossroads” and “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.”
