Seth your that big of a degenerate that you bet on movie award shows? Yep, and if you’ve never experienced betting on movie or music and award shows, I’d suggest you start. It’s almost as exciting as betting on on a player putting on the 18th hole at the Masters or a last second field goal in the Super Bowl. Big Mick, Base and I have won some epic award bets, most notably a best picture winner for the Last King of Scotland and Stadium Arcadium for album of the year.
Tonight in the Golden Globes I’m eyeing two bets. Big Mick is Big Rips resident movie insider and has a strong feeling on the following.
Best Supporting Actor – Christian Bale -550. He portrayed Mickey Wards crackhead half brother in the Fighter. He played the role perfectly. I read an interview with Bale and as part of his character development he hung around lowell with his family, friends, went to his old drinking hangouts and dabbled in the crack (I made that last part up). Bale should be a lock. Bet Bale -550
Best Supporting Actress – The Globes notoriously give out sympathy globes, could reward Amy Adams for her role in the Fighter after she’s lost the last 3 times she been nominated. Still the consensus around Hollywood and movie insiders say Melissa Leo – Adams counterpart in the Fighter – is the sure bet. Bet Mellissa Leo -105
Best Picture – The Social Network -260 is the heavy favorite and all the talk is around this picture cleaning up. I’m going to take a flyer and bet a long shot. I think it’s The Fighters night and it wins as a long shot. Bet the Fighter at a healthy +875.
Good luck and fuck the Jets,
