Odds for the 2009 Oscars

Sports Interaction betting analyst Frank Doyle considers the odds for the 2009 Oscar nominees announced on Thursday.

Slumdog Millionaire is a red hot favorite for Best Picture and is the movie everyone is talking about in the run-in to the Academy Awards themselves. It's interesting, actually, that a feel-good movie is the most talked about movie of the year - it's like a throwback to the thirties, with people going to theatres to watch Fred and Ginger dance in evening clothes before going back to Great Depression outside.
