Oscars 2011 Odds Have Kings Speech Favourite To Win Just Two Of Big Six Oscars
Thursday 17 February 2011 at 10:21
The big six Oscars are traditionally, the Oscars for Director, Picture, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress and despite the Oscars 2011 Odds suggesting that The King's Speech will be the big winner on the night, the film is expected to get just two of the biggest awards according to the Oscars 2011 Betting Odds, The Fighter is expected to win the same amount.
King's Speech And Social Network Could Split Key Awards
The Best Director and Best Picture Oscars are expected to follow the same path as the BAFTAs, David Fincher is expected to win Best Director for The Social Network at 8/13 with Stan James and SkyBet, The King's Speech director Tom Hooper is still in the running though at 11/8 with Bet365, who offer up to £200 in free bets to new customers. The King's Speech should get revenge in the Best Picture category, it can be backed at just 1/6 with SkyBet and William Hill, The Social Network is some way off the pace at 5/1 with Bet365. That should put the score at 1-1 between The King's Speech and The Social Network.
Colin Firth The Most Likely Winner On Oscar Night
The biggest certainty of the night should be a Best Actor Oscar for Colin Firth for his performance in The King's Speech, he is just 1/33 with SkyBet and Blue Square. In the Best Actress category there is another short priced favourite, Black Swan actress Natalie Portman is available at just 1/12 with Blue Square and 888Sport. In the supporting categories The Fighter could win both awards, Christian Bale is 1/6 with Bet365 and Coral despite missing out on the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress, meanwhile Melissa Leo should win Best Supporting Actress, she is 1/2 with Sportingbet at the moment, well ahead of third favourite Helena Bonham Carter for her role in The King's Speech, she is 8/1 with Sportingbet.
