Could La La Land Get Trumped At The Oscars? Gamble On Moonlight
William Hill have slashed the odds of Moonlight winning the Best Picture Oscar from 7/1 to 11/2 in the space of 24 hours after a sustained gamble while the odds of La La Land winning it have gone the other way from 1/9 to 1/6.
“La La Land remains the red hot favourite to win the Oscar but this last minute gamble suggests that maybe it does not have the two hands on the statue that everyone thought it did,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
