Oscars betting odds get a lot of attention each year, especially the ones for the Best Picture. American Sniper won this year’s Oscar for Best Picture. In many cases, the film to win Best Picture was really not that popular with the general public but the Academy definitely liked them. The other popular categories in Oscars betting odds are Best Actor, Best Actress, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress. Best Director can also sometimes attract some attention in Oscars betting odds.
The first Academy Awards were given out on May 16, 1929 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. The first televised Academy Awards was the 25th show held on March 19, 1953.
The year 1939 was one of the most popular years for the Academy Awards as “Gone with the Wind” won best picture. The record for most Oscars is eleven as the 1959 film “Ben Hur” set the record which was later tied by “Titanic” in 1997 and “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” in 2003. It is interesting to note that “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” received 11 nominations and won all 11 Oscars.
Meryl Streep has the record for most Academy Awards odds nominations with 15 but she has only won the award twice. Oscars betting odds show that Katharine Hepburn won an Oscar four times.
