Australian actress Naomi Watts may have picked up a Worst Actress Razzie nomination for her performances in Diana & Movie 43, but online bookmaker Sportingbet has installed her as the outsider to win the annual award.
Watts is at odds of $6.50 with Sportingbet, well behind favourite Tyler Perry at $2.80 for her role in A Madea Christmas. Fellow nominees Halle Berry ($3.20), Selena Gomez ($3.50) and Lindsay Lohan ($3.60) are all ahead of Watts in the market.
“Our punters won’t have a bar of Naomi winning the Razzie and they are backing everyone else to beat her,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.
The Adam Sandler comedy Grown Ups 2 is the $2.10 favourite at Sportingbet to win the Razzie for Worst Picture, with Sandler the clear-cut $1.28 favourite to win the Worst Actor Razzie for his leading role in the movie.
“The odds suggest that Sandler’s Raspberry statuette collection is about to multiply,” Brown said.
