The Oscars are a chance to see Hollywood’s brightest stars receive accolades for their work over the past year, listen to acceptance speeches of the good, bad and sometimes long varieties, and, for lots of people, a chance to make some friendly wagers. For entertainment purposes only of course.

Even as legal gambling has expanded in the US recently, betting on the Oscars remains illegal in places like Las Vegas. Gambling on events with predetermined outcomes is almost never sanctioned there. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t odds being laid on the show. We looked at the site GoldDerby to see who’s a favorite (or a Favourite) and who’s a longshot.
