One of the first bets of the 2011 Oscars was paid out Sunday before the awards ceremony even began.  Odds on Natalie Portman’s dress color had “Other” listed at 4/1 at Bookmaker.com.   Purple was not among the colors specifically listed on the Bookmaker.com website. 

Portman, who is pregnant, wowed viewers on the red carpet with her stunning rich purple draped dress by Rodarte.

Twitter fans rejoiced:

Didn't like her Golden Globes dress but this is stunning RT @lawschoolninja: Wow Natalie Portman is beautiful in that purplecolor.

Debberrific Deb

Natalie Portman is radiant!!! Perfect dress for the night. Not my fave color, but it looks beautiful on her.

Natalie Portman was a favorite coming into the 2011 Oscars, nominated for “Best Actress” for her role in Black Swan. 

Oscar betting traffic had been steady throughout the day on Sunday.  The Oscars are traditionally the most wagered on nonsporting event on the Web.
