“Best Picture” Odds Has The Social Network Early Favorite for 2011 Oscars

The Social Network was easily nominated Tuesday morning for an Oscar in the “Best Picture” category.  Its early odds of winning were set at -500, making the film a favorite but by no means a “lock” where Oscar betting is concerned. 

Typically, Academy Awards odds are released based on which film wins previous awards honors, specifically The Golden Globes.  The Social Network won a Golden Globe for “Best Picture” earlier in the month.

The Social Network is a 2010 drama about the founding of the social networking website Facebook and the resulting lawsuits. The film was directed by David Fincher, who himself was a big -1500 favorite to win for “Best Director”.

The Social Network is up against stiff competition, however.  For example, just one month ago, The King’s Speech was slightly favored to win an Oscar over The Social Network. 

"This and the 'Best Supporting Actress' category I feel is among the most competitive and up for grabs in 2011," remarked Payton O'Brien, Senior Editor of the Gambling911.com website.

Other films up for “Best Picture” Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The Kids Are All Right, The King’s Speech, 127 Hours, Toy Story 3, True Grit, and Winter’s Bone.
