Ledger's family is in from Australia, cash your ticket Munson.

Slumdog for best picture looks like a winner, but a small hedge with Milk might be wise...

I think I laid a ton on Ang Lee for Brokeback director a couple of years ago...

Same people that voted for Brokeback will vote for Heath. 1) Cuz he's dead and 2) Cuz he was in Brokeback.

The Academy leans WAY GAY, that's the only reason I would give Milk a fighting chance against Slumdog.

Laying 25-1 eh Jimmy?

Yikes.
Some of these outcomes are predetermined, it's not like betting on a game. Basically the competition is over, you just have to follow the clues like Jimmy is to find the winner.

You can find Wall-E at -1000 at a sponsor book.

Hell I got Rourke to win Best Actor there at +100 two days ago

Ledger was -1250 to win BSA there as well

at this point Milk at the highest price you can find is about the only play left with a small amount of value..

You going big on Wall-E? I found the bet Hines is referring to, only ? is how much to throw at it.
I went X-Large on Wall-E.

As a rule the academy detests anything from from Disney because they are "family friendly", however this time the quality trumps the politics.

I took a chance on Milk. I bet $20 at +3000. Worth a shot I guess. It's hard to find odds like that. I know Slumdog is the overwhelming favorite but if Marissa Tomei can win an Oscar for My Cousin Vinny then who knows...
