Bet on the Oscar Bond Tribute
Paddy Power is offering two special betting markets on the James Bond 50th anniversary section of the Oscar Ceremony.
The online bookmaker is offering odds of 4/1 that Daniel Craig will parachute into the ceremony as well at odds of 7/1 that the ceremony’s host, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, will dress up as a Bond girl at some point during the ceremony.
At present the Oscar producers are working hard trying to persuade all six actors who have played James Bond to attend the tribute. According to rumours Sean Connery is the least likely to show up, he is known to dislike the producers of the official Bond franchise and two years ago he decided not to make any more publish appearances.
However, there have been some reports that Connery is planning on showing up.
One source quoted in Scotland’s Daily Record said that “Sean’s relationship with the Oscars is good and we’re hoping he’ll appear. His issues with the Bond producers are not our business and we hope he will overlook that as we pay tribute to what he has done. It would be magnificent to see him up there with the other actors – and quite a coup.”
