without further ado, let's take a look at the 2010 Oscars
predictions posted by one of the most reputable online
Of course, we will begin with the most
anticipated category this year - the Oscar for the Best Picture.
It was a two-horse race when the early odds on the 82nd Academy
Awards were initially posted a couple of weeks ago and even
though it remains that way, we have a change in the favorites.
At Bodog the favorite movie to win the 2010 Oscars Award for the
Best Picture right now is "The Hurt Locker" sitting on odds
20/27! The picture replaced the previous favorite - "Avatar"
which is now paying on even odds 1/1/ to win the Best Picture
Award. Big shift in odds and public opinion, considering that
initially Avatar was the big favorite paying on 1/3 and The Hurt
Locker was trailing with 5/4 odds to win the Oscars this year.
Here is the full list of odds to win the 2010 Oscars for Best
Picture, as posted by
A Serious Man - 75/1
An Education - 75/1
Avatar - 1/1
District 9 - 100/1
Inglourious Basterds - 9/1
Precious - 30/1
The Blind Side - 50/1
The Hurt Locker - 20/27
Up - 75/1
Up in the Air - 25/1
But despite the change of favorite to
win the Oscars for Best Picture, the race remains pretty close
to call. And here are some other odds on the tonight's Oscars.
We have Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart) as the ultimate favorite to
win the 82nd Academy Awards in the Best Actor category, sitting
on short odds 1/9, i.e. you have to bet $9 to win just $1.
Bridges is followed by George Clooney for his voice in Up
in the Air and odds 10/1, along with Morgan Freeman (Invictus)
with 12/1 odds to win the Oscar for Best Actor. The Best Actress
Academy Award will likely go to Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side),
according to the bookmaker, who has placed Bullock atop with
odds 4/11. Competition for the Best Actress at the 2010 Oscars
will come from Meryl Streep (Julie & Julia) listed at 9/4 to win
and Gabourey Sidibe at 17/2 for her role in Precious. Wondering
about Mo'Nique (Precious) and her chances to win the Best
Supporting Actress at the Oscars 2010? Don't - the bookmaker has
listed Mo'Nique with the whopping odds of -1600 to win the
Award, i.e. people have to bet $1600 to win just a measly $100.
