The Hollywood Stock Exchange has opened up its annual Award Options. Right now, here is how it is looking.
The way the Hollywood Stock Exchange works is that it simulates actual stock options for contenders. The more people who believe a certain film or performer will win, the higher their stock. You can’t really win big unless you happen to have stock in a surprise winner.
