Did anyone place bets this year? The Wiz made some money last year laying the favorites. I would bet on Bovada again, if they didn't stop accepting wagers from my state.

I've got a bet on my girl J-Lawr. Got it at -190 and I am thrilled with that price.

Good luck! What was the line on the Anne Hathaway "lock"?

I don't know what the lines are, but I think Les Mis or Lincoln were stronger films. However, my tastes and the Academy's have been wildly different in the past. Since Les Mis was hamstrung by Russell Crowe's singing, I am choosing Lincoln for the win.
