Best actress at the 85th Academy Awards - Jessica Chastain
I'll put in my Academy Awards picks now because odds tend to go down rapidly here and when they go down, they go down to the extreme. For example, Daniel Day-Lewis now has 1.4, when the awards start coming he will probably be down on 1.01. When Octavia Spencer won last year the odds were 1.002. Therefore it’s always a good idea to be early out with these kind of bets. Of course no one can guarantee that one single film will be the one to go down at those odds, but I think rather bet at these odds than when the gala is approaching.
I would say it's about 50/50 between Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain. I do however think that Silver Linings Playbook might be ignored by the Oscars, it will get nominated but I don't think it will be the big movie at this awards, as many however do think, at least when it comes to acting. Both these actresses are liked by the academy but I think Jessica Chastain has chosen a career more wisely. She is also the leading role of the movie I think will grab the biggest Oscars.
I need say no more here, I don't think Chastain is the obvious winner, rather 50/50, and therefore odds 4 are good. Keeping the stakes down a bit.
