Will Punters La La Lump On La La Land For The BAFTAs?
Following the BAFTA announcements, it looks as though the traditional British bias could go out of the window if the betting is anything to go by.
William Hill make La La Land odds on to pick up three of the big four awards at this year’s with just Ryan Gosling NOT heading the betting in his category. Casey Affleck is the 1/5 favourite to scoop Best Actor, while the La La Land trio of Emma Stone (8/15), Damien Chazelle (1/6) and the film itself (1/4) all topping their respective categories
“La La Land looks set to sweep the board at every ceremony and we can see it fighting off British competition here to scoop even more awards,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
