Great odds on Meryl Streep, maybe she will win yet another Oscar :)

 

She is an amazing actress.  Be nice to see her win and at those odds, worth a bet on it too.

Pffff... Matthew McConaughey! He shouldn't have won. :) but that's my humble opinion.

 

I don't know what to say, I haven't watched the movie yet.

Not a huge fan of Matthew, until the True Detective that is (I recommend this Show to everyone).

I feel a bit sorry for Leo though.

On the bright side, I am betting next year the Leo won't get the award, it seems like a sure bet :)

Wow, I am quite surprised to see Romania so high on the favourites list! Our song was chosen by the public last weekend and I don't think it has a chance to win the contest. But who knows?

 

Here it is:

Perhaps it's a good thing. He could end up in a fantastic company:

 

Richard Burton (7 nominations, 0 wins)

Peter O'Toole (8 nominations, 0 wins)

Alfred Hitchcock (5 nominations, 0 wins) or

Stanley Kubrick (4 nominations, 0 wins).

 

There are many more amazing actors and actresses who have never won an Oscar. :)

Murray has no chance if he keeps playing like he currently does. I think everything depends on the football World Cup, if England do well there then a football player might get it. Ronnie O'Sullivan might be a good bet.

I agree with Johnny. I think that Ronnie O'Sullivan deserves to win, but if Murray manages to get his form back, he will easily win this. I'm sure he's extremely popular in the UK.

But murray won last year, i dont think there has been a repeated winner in the sports personality award in its history, but i didnt do a search to find out if that is the case, but to be honest i do agree that Ronnie O'Sullivan does deserve to win this award, he is truly deserving of it. but it will probably be someone who is under the radar this year :P

Not sure if Murray has a chance this year, and I would put my money on Ronnie. The man is simply a legend!

Austria (aka the bearded lady) won the contest! Quite a surprising result if you ask me, the song doesn't sound like anything special but I guess all the hype around the singer made them win.

I don't know whether the winner is surprising. Everyone were talking about her; and after the semi-final night it was quite expected. I agree about the song; it's average at best.

I really ddn't think much of the winning song at all  -  guess all the hype did the trick.  I liked the Netherlands one the best.

 

I see Austria weren't even in teh betting!
