Oscars Best Documentary: Odds On Who Will Win

Documentary Feature -

Favorite: Searching for Sugarman at 1/14

Next Best: The Gatekeepers at 14/1

Searching for Sugarman is a Mortal Lock to win for Best Documentary Feature. Though this category is often ripe for an upset, it doesn't seem to be in the cards for 2013.

 

Animated Feature:

Favorite: TIE between Wreck-It Ralph and Brave, both running off at 5/4

Next Best: Frankenweenie at 11/2

Animated Feature is a 100% dead heat between Dreamworks' Wreck-It Ralph and Pixar's Brave according to the oddsmakers, but when was the last time Pixar actually lost this one? Have they ever?

 

Foreign Language Film -

Favorite: Amour at 1/25

Next Best: Kon-Tiki at 20/1

Amour is a Metaphysical Certitude to win for Best Foreign Language Film. Some parlors have it as high as 1/66, and it's even nominated for Best Picture. Logic begs the question: How could it lose to a film that didn't deserve a nomination in that category?
