Online bets going on the Oscars

This week is Oscars week, the most famous awards ceremony on the planet, and betting on who will be nominated and who will walk away with one of the iconic gold figurines.

Betting on Oscar nominees with hard cash is supposedly impossible and forbidden, as some working in show business will know ahead of time who is nominated, and this gives unfair advantage to them.

Nevertheless, gambling pools betting on movies are cropping up at online casinos everywhere. Some of the favourites for betting on? Django Unchained, Lincoln, Argo and Les Miserables.
