You can bet on them internationally. It's illegal in the United States to gamble on entertainment events as far as I know. Also as far as I know, you can't just bet the house on something obvious. Something like Chris Plummer winning for Beginners would cost, for example, $60 to win $1. If I bet the house a few years ago on The Secret in Their Eyes beating The White Ribbon, though, I'd have at least two houses. (But I wasn't 21 then, so boo.)


yeah, all sports betting sites are based in Guam or something. just checked the one I use, the odds they have on oscars are pretty extreme, have never seen such locks compared to sports bets. The Artist is 1-20! The Descendants is 10-1, not a bad bet. Best Actor is the only remotely close category.

They also have odds for who Joan Rivers will name best & worst dressed. looks like Nick Nolte is favored in worst dressed.

Of the ones I've seen:

The Artist, Hugo and The Descendants I'm not disappointed to see nominated. The Help deserved its acting nominations. But I wouldn't call it the Best Picture by a long shot. JB called it "a soap opera with some good acting" and that's the best way to describe it.

Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close was okay.

Got Moneyball and Tree Of Life in the Netflix que. I have no real interest in Midnight In Paris and War Horse.
