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.

Lee Daniels Speaks Out On The ‘Pain, Anger, Sadness And Frustration’ Surrounding The Jussie Smollett Scandal

Published

on

Although never mentioned by name, it’s clear that Empire creator, Lee Daniels, is still processing “the freaking roller coaster” Jussie Smollett has put him through.

Lee Daniels took to Instagram on Wednesday night to speak out about the Jussie Smollett scandal. The caption to the video states that Lee was “in [his] feelings last week,” alluding to the further developments surrounding the case. In the video, after brushing his teeth, Lee takes a moment to address the fact that Jussie is still appearing in new episodes of the hit show because they were filmed prior to “the incident.” In the wake of the allegations, the show has released a statement confirming the fact that Jussie has been written out of the last two episodes of the season. Lee’s pain and frustration stems from something deeper than character arcs as he told his followers “this is not what the show was made for. This show was made to bring America together to talk about the atrocities that are happening right now in the streets.”

On January 29th, Jussie made claims that he was the victim to a racially-motivated attack. After an extensive investigation, Chicago police believe that the alleged attack was fake. Since being charged, Jussie has pleaded not guilty on 16 felony counts for allegedly making false statements to police. Jussie also denies claims that he faked the ordeal due to his dissatisfaction with his salary. No word on whether Jussie will return to Empire next season as of yet.

Dan And Eugene Levy Announce That Next Season Of ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Will Be It’s Last

Published

on

Well ain’t this some real, sad Schitt…

Very few television shows gain popularity over time which is why I am astonished by the news that Schitt’s Creek will be ending after next season! It’s got charm. It’s got wit. It’s got heart. Not to mention outstanding performances by LITERALLY everyone in the cast. Ugh, I’m more upset than a disgruntled pelican.

I guess we should all take comfort in knowing that the show is ending on the terms of  co-creators (and stars) Dan Levy and Eugene Levy. Just moments ago they released an official statement announcing their renewal for a 6th and final season. In the statement they express their gratitude for being given “the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with the final chapter that [they] had envisioned from the very beginning.”

To Our Dear Fans…

A post shared by Dan Levy (@instadanjlevy) on

Over the course of it’s five seasons, Schitt’s Creek has been praised by fans and critics alike for their hysterical yet positive storylines. Dan Levy, whose character is identifies as pansexual, has been clear since the show’s beginning that the world of Schitt’s Creek is a tolerant one that is free of bias and homophobia. I can’t tell you how many times I laughed and then snot-cried on my couch while watching this show!

There are three more episodes of season 5 of Schitt’s Creek to still be aired with a final fourteen episodes airing sometime in 2020. Seventeen episodes doesn’t seem like nearly enough time for a proper bereavement to deal with this Schitt-y news but I guess we will have to make do.

QUESTION: Did You Know Cole Sprouse Could Sing?!?

Published

on

All those years on Disney and never once did we see Cole Sprouse belt out a few bars but now the bruiting teenager suddenly wants to sing?!

You know Cole Sprouse. He was on Friends as Ross’ son, Ben. He was in the Adam Sandler hit, Big Daddy. He and his twin brother, Dylan, even starred as the titular roles in the Disney channel original series, The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody. I can’t tell you which one is which because the twin thing has always confused me.

Nevertheless, Cole has grown up quite a bit and is now starring in the wildly popular, CW hit Riverdale. The series is a dark twist on the old Archie comic books and Cole plays the social outcast, Jughead Jones. Last night was the show’s second annual musical episode and this time they paid homage to Heathers: The Musical. Jughead didn’t so much as hum one note in last years musical so fans were SHOOK when he had an entire duet with co-star Lili Reinhart last night! The pair sang a beautiful rendition of “Seventeen” along with Vanessa Morgan and Madelaine Petsch…which is surprising because no of us knew that Cole could sing!

Of Cole’s hidden talent, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa  said “Cole and I talked about it a while ago and I said, ‘How do you feel about musicals and stuff?’ He basically said, ‘Listen, I never sang for Disney. It would take a lot.’” This might be a new avenue in Cole’s career, however, as he sings in his new movie Five Feet Apart as well. Well color me surprised! Good job hiding this suite talent, Cole!

Riverdale airs on The CW Wednesdays at 8p EST.
