|Betting is already underway for this year’s Academy Awards. But what’s hot at the bookmaker’s is not who’s best in Hollywood. The title of ‘Best Dressed’ Actress in a Leading Role nominee is where people are putting their money, and the action is at international celebrity poll betting site AnyBets.com. |
Hilary Swank, Annette Bening, Imelda Staunton, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Kate Winslet are all in a race for the Best Actress Oscar this year, but betting on People magazine’s Best Dressed List is where the real action is taking place!
To date, the majority of the betting public have picked Kate Winslet as the most likely best dressed by 23%, following close behind is Hilary Swank with 20% of the vote and Annette Bening at 11%.
Examining the actresses’ history in fashion fantastics, faux pas and blunders, the voters on AnyBets.com are right on track. Hilary Swank won People’s Best Dressed at this year’s Golden Globe Awards and Kate Winslet and Annette Bening have made it to big-time fashion icon Mr Blackwell’s Best Dressed List for 2004.
According to London-based luxury accessory sets designer, William Sharp, Hilary is the glamour princess the voters should be backing in the fashion stakes, and not Kate.
“Hilary’s beautiful body, sexy legs, and nice ass look fabulous in a revealing cleavage-showing dress. And with those sexy collar bones, every outfit she wears bestows that Hollywood WOW factor,” added Sharp.
A spokesperson at AnyBets.com said that British hopeful, Imelda Staunton, has hardly rated at all in this betting poll. “Perhaps Imelda’s fashion disaster at the Golden Globes has made her an unlikely winner by in vogue voters. She was voted Worst Dressed by People for her outfit at the Golden Globes. Only 6% have voted that she’ll be best primped at the Oscars.”
“Catalina Sandino Moreno is new to the red carpet fashion domain, and the rookie is only attracting 9% of the public’s money for the 2005 awards.”
The Academy Awards is the ultimate showbiz event, and the betting polls are making fashion pundits out of all who follow Hollywood’s A-list.
AnyBets.com added, “It’s the Night of Nights, when the who’s who of the film industry glam up in their best designer gowns, and what better occasion than to have a flutter on the Best Dressed celebrities. As your favourite actress walks down the red carpet it is much more exciting to see how they’re dressed when there’s money on the line!”
