ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: "La La Land" is a lock to sweep the Oscars next week, but the race to be crowned Hollywood's leading man is going down to the wire, say bookmakers who are seeing record bets on the Academy Awards this year. Ladbrokes favors Affleck with 8/15 odds, compared to 13/8 for a Washington victory but said it's getting down to the wire. Bookmakers, however, are overwhelmingly confident that musical "La La Land" will take home the best picture gong. Punters are finding several ways to put their money behind "La La Land." Ladbrokes has the film 3/1 to equal the record for most wins - currently 11 held by "Titanic," "Ben-Hur" and "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King." The odds for "La La Land" to beat the record for most wins is 10/1.
