It would be funny if DiCaprio didn't win again. Its funny how he is one of the best Actors in hollywood and has never won as Oscar but other lame actors win year by year. Its staged most likely.

I think it is going to take Dicaprio the Oscars this time.

He has never won and I think that people gamble on him that he's going to win.

It's not staged but plenty of great actors face fierce competition when nominated but with a weaker part or movie. Other years they are not even nominated for perhaps they best work ever. In this case I think Di Caprio is actually the favorite.

I don't really care who or what movie wins, that's really lame because one cannot say one is "better" than the other, but nominations are cool and should be well considered, they are like achievements by themselves, the movies and technical work that stood out, no matter which one is actually the best one.

Never heard of it, frankly. But I think it is done well, but probably not so popular.
Maybe later we can gamble on more such shows.

Am I allowed to say that I thought Di Caprio was fine but not amazing in the revenant? I thought Tom Hardy gave a better performance but he did have more to work with. I can think of plenty of other actors who would've been as good.

I'm not sure I'd want to bet on Oscars. At least with sports you have some form to go on. The Oscars are totally subjective and it's decided by a few thousand old white guys with dementia.

You may be right but like I said I don't think Di Caprio has strong opposition this year compared to previous ones and that's why he is most likely to win. I think this internet/meme movement and cause is also a factor since the man has been paying its dues for years. Of course that doesn't guarantee him an Oscar but considering this year best actor nominations is clear why he is the favorite to get it.

This is nice, directbet is taking bets for Oscars I hope thus not going to be just a one time offering but everytime there is Oscars.

Hi DaddyMonsi,

Thank you so  much for your kind words and for your feedback !

It is actually the 3rd year DirectBet is taking bets for the Oscars Smiley

DirectBet has been taking bets for the Oscars since DirectBet was founded, three years in a row.

We of course plan to continue offering these special bets in the future.

This is the direct link to our Oscars Offerings : DirectBet Oscars Offerings.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or if you need anything.

All the Best,

Michelle

Thanks for this DB... however parlay feature is disabled. Not Cool!!  Angry

Hi bitcoinprofit,

Thank you so much for your feedback !

This is because special bets and bets on the same event can not be parlayed due to potential correlation.

For example, there could be a correlation between different Oscars categories.

If you are interested in parlaying your bet on the Oscars with Direct Dice you can use our 'Double or Nothing' betting option.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.

Thanks again for your feedback. Your feedback is very important to us Smiley

All the Best,

Michelle

I don't see any bets on DirectBet anymore, when I click on Oscars, I get this message: "The specified event could not be found."

I have watched all the nominated movies and can make my predictions and I don't think Spotlight will win it, its good but I find Revenant to be better.

That would be really funny.

But I think it happens often.

But most do it among friends. But it would be fun to do.

I just saw Star Wars The Force Awakens is in the Oscars under Best Visual Effects and has the same odds with Mad Max this will be a close call to be honest Smiley

Yep. For me it is the worst.. because i don't like Star Wars Smiley Anyway for Visual Effects i bet on Mad Max.
I didn't change my mind about best film and actor 100% Di Caprio and 90% for Marsian.
Supporting actor - other very difficult position - or Stallone or Hardy. I think Hardy.

DiCaprio has good chance of finally winning an Oscar, already won the Golden Globe, the Oscar is next.

Very true. I also believe he will very likely win the Oscar this year, but the odds I see is terrible @ 1.07. It is definitely not worth the risk IMO.

I did not bet on DiCaprio 3 weeks ago when I thought the odds was too low. Now the odds is even a lot lower, and I was feeling a bit regretful lol. Anyway I will probably only bet on Stallone this year which I think has a high chance to win and a reasonably good odds.

I also wonder if Oscar gets Sylvester Stallone or Tom Hardy .. but for "ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE". For an Oscar "ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE" are nominated:
Bryan Cranston, Trumbo
Matt Damon, The Martian
Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant   <--- here is my bet Wink
Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs
Eddie Redmayne, The Danish Girl

So there is no way to compete Stallone with Di Caprio  Grin

Oops sorry for not mentioning it clearer. I was planning to bet on DiCaprio winning best actor but was deterred by the very low odds, and now I has decided to bet on Stallone winning best supporting actor @ 1.33.

I wanted to write a correction.. when i read once again your comment more carefully i understand what you mean Wink
I have bigger problem with Stallone/Hardy than with Di Caprio - here i'm sure Wink
Movie - Martian (probably Wink )

Leo deserves to take it for sure. Not a ton of talking in the film
but wow he makes you think you are actually on that hellish journey
when there is dialogue.

Definitely think oscars need a younger makeover of voters because im
pretty sure no one has seen brooklyn or the room.

Maybe someone went and saw brooklyn and was shocked it wasnt made
by spike lee and was boring as hell.
