LOS ANGELES - Jan. 13, 2014 - PRLog -- When Australia’s high-profile entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins informed Cate Blanchett on Channel Nine’s TODAY show that she was a roaring favourite with to win this year’s Golden Globe/BAFTA/Academy Award treble for her performance in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, the actress joked about comparisons with Phar Lap.

It’s not Phar Lap but Black Caviar that Blanchett is now drawing comparisons with, after her price of winning the 2014 Best Actress Oscar shortened to ‘Black Caviar-type’ odds of $1.14 at Sportingbet following her best dramatic actress award at the Golden Globes.

Blanchett’s odds of completing the Golden Globe/BAFTA/Academy Award treble also firmed from $1.60 into $1.36 at Sportingbet.

“Cate joked with Wilkins about being a people’s favourite like Phar Lap and our punters are now backing her as though she’s unbeatable like Black Caviar,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.

“More than 90% of the money we are holding in our Best Actress Oscar market is for Cate,” Brown said.

Arguably Australia’s greatest ever racehorse, Black Caviar retired undefeated last April after an incredible 25 race career.

Meanwhile, 12 Years A Slave tightened its grip on favouritism for the Best Picture Oscar, firming from $1.65 into $1.33 at Sportingbet. American Hustle is a $4.50 second favourite ahead of Gravity at $5.50.
