Oscars Best Documentary: Odds On Who Will Win
Documentary Feature -
Favorite: Searching for Sugarman at 1/14
Next Best: The Gatekeepers at 14/1
Searching for Sugarman is a Mortal Lock to win for Best Documentary Feature. Though this category is often ripe for an upset, it doesn't seem to be in the cards for 2013.
Favorite: TIE between Wreck-It Ralph and Brave, both running off at 5/4
Next Best: Frankenweenie at 11/2
Animated Feature is a 100% dead heat between Dreamworks' Wreck-It Ralph and Pixar's Brave according to the oddsmakers, but when was the last time Pixar actually lost this one? Have they ever?
Foreign Language Film -
Favorite: Amour at 1/25
Next Best: Kon-Tiki at 20/1
Amour is a Metaphysical Certitude to win for Best Foreign Language Film. Some parlors have it as high as 1/66, and it's even nominated for Best Picture. Logic begs the question: How could it lose to a film that didn't deserve a nomination in that category?
