Olivia Colman defied the odds by winning the Best Actress Oscar, but William Hill customers were cheering across the country after taking the bookies for over £10,000. William Hill are now offering 6/1 that Olivia Colman is made a Dame before the end of the year.
Richard Madden Well Backed For Bond
William Hill have cut the price of Richard Madden being named as the next Bond from 6/1 to 4/1. “Winning a Golden Globe is a massive deal for Richard Madden as the only thing against him was perhaps a lack of gravitas, which he clearly now has,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
Next James Bond: 6/4 Tom Hiddleston, 7/4 James Norton, 4/1 Richard Madden, 5/1 Idris Elba, 6/1 Tom Hardy, 12/1 Cillian Murphy, 20/1 Aidan Turner, 20/1 Henry Cavill, 33/1 Bar
A Star is Born had a very disappointing night at the Golden Globes and as a result has drifted out to 5/2 to win the Best Picture Oscar. Rami Malek is now the 5/6 favourite to win the best Actor Oscar, with Bradley Cooper 11/4 and Lady Gaga is out to 7/2 to win Best Actress.
“The Globes did not show much love for A Star Is Born and as a result the film and its stars are drifting in the Oscars betting,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
