All eyes will be on television's brightest stars Sunday when the winners of the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are revealed. Pinnacle Sportsbook opened betting on the Emmys shortly after nominations were announced on July 6th and with only a few days until the awards ceremony, the company has released updated 2006 Emmy Awards odds on the six major categories.
The largest sports betting site on the Internet, Pinnacle Sportsbook is the source for betting odds on all things entertainment ranging from hit reality series, movie openings and award shows. According to the oddsmaker, ABC's hit Grey's Anatomy is a hot 5/14 favorite (i.e., win $5 for every $14 bet) to win the Emmy for Best Drama Series, while The Sopranos is a surprising 33/1 long shot. The Office is favored to strike Emmy gold for Best Comedy Series (11/10) and Best Actor in a Comedy for star Steve Carrell (4/7). Denis Leary (1/2) is currently the bettor's choice to win the Emmy for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his role on FX's Rescue Me. Malcom In The Middle's Jane Kaczmarek (7/5) is the bettor's choice in the Best Actress in a Comedy Series, while the most hotly contested award category is the Best Actress in a Drama where Kyra Sedgwick (11/4), Frances Conroy (14/5) and Geena Davis (3/1) are all serious Emmy contenders.
Below are the current odds offered by Pinnacle Sportsbook as calculated by the company's team of oddsmakers. Nominees appear in descending order from favorites to long shots under each category heading.
