British online gaming sites are giving odds on how many Oscar winners will mention Barack Obama during their acceptance speech. The odds-on favorite is that no one will.
The most interesting of the specials is perhaps the amount of winners that will mention President Barrack Obama in their acceptance speeches. The favourite is no one which is 7/4 with Paddy Power whilst one winner to mention Obama is 7/2 with Paddy Power. Two winners to mention the new President is 4/1 with Paddy Power and the same price is available on over five winners. Three winners is 5/1 with Paddy Power, four winners is 6/1 and five winners is 8/1. Obama is 16/1 with SkyBet to present an Oscar himself.
There’s also odds on who will cry.
Kate Winslet, the 10/11 favourite with Stan James to win Best Actress, is 5/2 with SkyBet to cry during her acceptance speech. SkyBet offer 4/1 that the winner of the Best Actor cries during his acceptance speech. The favourites for that award are Mickey Rourke who is 11/10 with SkyBet and Sean Penn who is 7/4 with Stan James. Sean Penn is 4/1 with SkyBet not to attend the ceremony.
