I am a big fan of the Oscars and I am watching almost every nominated film for years.

Here's my prediction:

Best Picture - Spotlight

Best Director - Adam McKay – The Big Short

Best Actor - Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant as Hugh Glass

Best Actress - Charlotte Rampling – 45 Years as Kate Mercer


Hope this will help somebody to win. )

Well my picks are slightly different than yours but if you're right about Charlotte Rampling then you'll get 20x as she is currently the under dog.

Its sad to see that Sicario might end up not winning in any category, It was a great movie.

I am also surprised that Sicario is not even nominated. I really like this movie. As for the Spotlight - I do not think that so controversial movie can get Oscar. The fact that he was nominated, for me is a very big surprise. ( I mean, because of the influence of the Church..)
In my opinion Oscar for the best movie will get The Martian. This is the first movie (as i know) with action in space that is neither a documentary nor fantastic, and besides, is very interesting.

Not way The Martian gets anything, it sucked ass sorry, predictable and boring Hollywood that has been done much better in Gravity and Castaway (I didn't even like that one...but still). I do agree on Sicario and Spotlight, Sicario was amazing and Benicio Del Toro should've been at least nominated, at least it got 4 nominations I think. Spotlight was ok, I think it was controversial back then but right now the story is a little too common (sadly) to have the same impact. Either way I don't think it'll win, not because the Oscars wouldn't like it, but because it's doesn't really deserve it, perhaps it could get some love in other categories.

I think Leo is a lock to win best actor this year.
That's why odd for him is only 1.01x so it is like nothing you get in profit if you win and if you loss by chance it will be a big blow with huge loss. Grin
you still earn profit from your bets if Leo win but very small profit but you can placed huge amount for Leo and for an example if you bet 1 btc then if Leo win you will get 0.01 from your bet


That's seriously a bad bet, yes I know Leo will most likely win but risking 1 BTC to win 0.01? Come on, if it was such a sure thing they would already announce him as the winner! There's a lot of pressure to give him an Oscar and frankly this year he doesn't have that strong competition but I don't know, maybe they give it to the guy who won last year, Eddie Redmayne, it's like the new Jennifer Lawrence. Plus the juries love that kind of stuff.
i know that this is not an good options but betting in oscar is very unpredictable and as usual for betting site for those who have low odds it mean a chance to win the bets is very big and for someone who did this and won i thought he/she still earn profit from their bets even only for the small amount

I think many people bet on Leonardo. Because he didnt ever win and now he won so that is quite good.
But I think that a lot of people also lose some money because of him. You never know what can happen.

You can watch it on their official website I think, though is region restricted, might find it on youtube also. Congrats on your win, I had 5 small bets but didn't win anything but then again I chose the ones with slightly better odds than favorites and based on the things I like.

Leonardo DiCaprio is confident that his losing streak at the Academy Awards is finally over, he deserved it over and over thru the years.

Many people was betting on Di caprio. And they will get some a lot of money. Because he won.
Everyone was surprised, but finally he won the oscars after 6 times. So it is good to gamble on oscars it is quite hard to predict.

I think its good that people bet on Di caprio but if you think about the fact a lot people did it the odds will be low in my opinion right ?
So I think there will some people that win a lot of money but also some people that will not win a lot only a little bit of money.

Too bad I was not able to bet on Di Caprio for the Best Actor award as I had this second thought that he will not bag the award. Why do I have this sudden feeling that this Oscars event is made for him to win his first award?

Good to see Di Caprio finally got his Oscar. Very well deserved after a long, successful career. Would have been a tragedy if he didn't get one.

Honestly, the odds of him winning were so high, the payout wasn't much. I think the odds were around 1.15 or maybe even lower, so you didn't miss out on too much. I was going to bet on Leo, but I decided that the payout wasn't worth it.

Yea, the people went for the sympathy vote on that one. If you looked at his statistics, you might think a 1:15 should have been crazy. It is like looking at a baseball game, and knowing the home team will just get that extra bit of sympathy from the ref. < He also knows he will get mobbed attacked, if the home team lose >

Congratulations to the winners. ^smile^
