Entertainment betting covers a broad range of entertainment, including game shows, reality competitions, tv shows, movies, and more. Some of the most popular shows to bet on include American IdolThe Voice, Survivor, and other competition shows. Still, the Grammys, Oscars, and the Razzies are also popular wagering options. 

This year several favorites are leading into the Oscars awards show, but nothing is guaranteed. Giving the nature of the Oscars competition, 18+ online sportsbooks are currently offering odds for top categories, including best actor, best actress, best screenplay, and more.
