Bookies take aim at 21st annual GLAAD Media Awards

(DUBLIN, IR) Ireland based betting website Paddy Power today announced betting on the 21st annual GLAAD Media awards following the release of the nominations yesterday.

Freshman musical comedy Glee is the bookies hot favorite, with odds of 7/4 to win the Outstanding Comedy category followed by British series Beautiful People at 3/1 and the Primetime Emmy Award winning United States of Tara at 4/1.

HBO’s bloodsucking True Blood is the 2/1 favorite for success in the Outstanding Drama category but will have to fight off a strong challenge from ABC’s Brother and Sisters at 5/2 and award winning British teen drama series Skins at 7/2.

In the other main categories New York sensation Lady GaGa is the 6/4 favorite to win Outstanding Music Artist and Tom Ford’s critically acclaimed drama A Single Man is heavily tipped for the Outstanding Film gong.

Said a Paddy Power exec in a January 14 press release, “In my opinion this year’s nominations are the strongest yet and I’m pretty sure we can expect a few surprises on the night”
