Five Bizarre Oscar Wagers You Can Seriously Bet On.

Published

on

Gambling on sports, sure… that’s common – but betting on whether someone will fall at the Oscars? Now THAT’S a wager! 

If you’re still in the process of filling out your office Oscar pool, why not add another element of suspense into the mix! It turns out you can bet on everything from who will cry, to who will wear a hat at the big event. Here’s a look at the top five WEIRD bets that are available on Bodog.Com.

TOP FIVE WEIRD OSCAR BETS:

1) How many of the Big 3 award winners (Director, Actor, Actress) will visibly cry when receiving their award?    So here – obviously the odds are that not all three will cry… I’m guessing, based on history – that at least ONE will cry…and in fact, the odds definitely reflect that. Natalie Portman did not cry when she won at the Golden Globes…but this is the Oscars! You may wonder though … what if they just get choked up? How do you measure this? The key words are VISIBLY CRY… Bodog.com is the site offering this wager and they say that it only counts during the receiving of the award and the acceptance speech, that they must visibly cry, and that their decision is final. That’s a tough one… the others are far more clear cut.  

2) How many times will the word Thanks or Thank You be used in the acceptance speech of the Big 3 Awards (Director, Actor, Actress)? If you’re not into placing a bet, just get everyone to do a shot. Prepare to be hammered. If this were the Grammy Awards you could drink every time a rapper get’s an expletive bleeped out.

3) Cruel but brilliant: Will any Oscar recipients fall on their way to the stage?  Okay – it’s a not so well kept secret that people get a sick pleasure out of watching people fall…and with all those long gowns and high heels its pretty safe to say someone will fall… but again, there are conditions!!!! At least 1 hand must touch the floor to be graded as winner  

4) Will any award winner drop the Oscar?  Condition: Statue must hit the floor for winner.

5) Will Geoffrey Rush be wearing a hat inside the theatre?  Say what? Yes, it’s a real wager. Red carpet does not count, must be shown in the theatre wearing a hat.

Why, you ask? 

The King’s Speech star wore a hat at the Golden Globes because he had to shave his head for a new role… so it’s entirely possible he could be donning one for the Oscars.

Now place your bets!

(Oh yeah – just a note… it’s illegal to bet on the Oscars from a US based website… but the can do spirit of opportunists found us all a glorious loophole! As long as the websites is based out of another country, you can – when you go to an online gambling website, you can never tell the difference, so lots of gambling sites are based outside america to avoid the regulations. A lot of people are gambling this way. (It’s the same way with Cruise ships… they’re almost always registered outside the US to avoid all our pesky rules and regulations!) This doesn’t mean they’re unsafe or sketchy (although I can’t really be sure which sites are on the level or not… this is not an endoresement) … it’s just easier to do these things from other places.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
