Odds of 66/1 on Bond to win elusive Best Film Oscar

Before the nominations are even announced William Hill has put odds of 66/1 on the latest Bond film to win the Best Picture Award for the first time in its 50 year history.

Spokesman Rupert Adams said, “Bond is the longest running movie franchise in history and Skyfall the most successful in that 23 film series, you have to think it has a chance of delivering the big one."

But despite optimism about Skyfall's chances it is still trailing Stephen Spielberg's Lincoln - 10/11, Les Miserables - 9/4 , and Life of Pi - 20/1. The British spy lags with odds of 66/1.

Attention could be on Brits at Oscar nominations

With Daniel Day-Lewis firmly in the running for a best actor nod at today's Oscar nominations, acting veterans Dame Helen Mirren and Dame Judi Dench aren't too far behind.

It's thought Dench could receive a nomination for her role in the latest Bond film Skyfall.

Mirren could also pick up a nod for her portrayal of Alfred Hitchcock's wife, which she played alongside Anthony Hopkins.

The singer, whose album 21 has been a huge hit in America, could receive a nomination for her Bond theme Skyfall.

There has been speculation that she could perform at the ceremony, as the awards mark 50 years of James Bond.
