The Oscars: La La Land To Dance All Over The Opposition

Predictably La La Land looks set to be the this year’s most successful film at the Oscars and it is 2/9 with William Hill to win the Best Picture Oscar, with the film’s director Damien Chazelle almost certain to win Best Director at 1/9.

“La La Land has become an unstoppable juggernaut and we fully expect a total clean-up at the Oscars,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
