Oscar Betting Odds

With the 2019 Oscar’s ceremony set to take place in Los Angeles in february, let’s rounds up the movies, actors and actresses currently on track to take home one of the famous golden statuettes.

Best Picture

Since its release to critical and commercial acclaim last summer, A Star is Born has led the way in most Oscar prediction lists. The fourth remake stars Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, whose performance Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian calls “mesmerizing”, he describes the film as “outrageously watchable and colossally enjoyable”. Telling the story of the first moon landings in 1969, First Man, another early frontrunner, has seen its odds lengthen in recent weeks.

The Golden Globes also threw up some genuine shocks, Green Book’s win for Best Comedy/Musical over the likes of Vice and The Favourite was one of its biggest surprises. Starring Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen, its set in the 1960s and tells the story of an African-American musician who hires an Italian-American driver to take him on a tour of the Deep South.

The victory of Bohemian Rhapsody against A Star is Born in the Best Drama category, was its another big surprise that shocked everyone.

According to Forbes, the non-frontrunners, such as the heartbreaking drama Beautiful Boy starring Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet has also a solid shot at a Best Picture nomination as does the Spike Lee’s BlackkKlansman.

A possible dark horse is Roma (from Oscar regular Alfonso Cuaron), set in the 1970s it’s about a middle-class life in Mexico City. Although released on Netflix, it has received rave reviews from critics, while Gold Derby (Hollywood prediction site) lists it as second favorite to win, behind A Star is Born which leads the way at 13/2.

Best Actor

Rami Malek's surprise Golden Globe win for playing Freddie Mercury, has seen him rocket to the top of the bookies Best Actor lists. He appears to have edged out the A Star is Born's leading man and director Bradley Cooper as favorite to pick up the golden statuettes, although Cooper is still expected to easily pick up his fourth Oscar nomination in just six years.  The Guardian predicts he will be joined by Ryan Gosling for First Man and Robert Redford for Old Man and the Gun.

The Golden Globe Best Actor winner Christian Bale, who plays former vice president Dick Cheney in Vice, can also crash the category.

Best Actress

A Star is Born again leads the way, with Lady Gaga’s performance being showered with praise by the critics, according to many experts a win for the musician-turned-actress seems like almost a lock at this point.

However, a recent surge in support for Glenn Close's performance in the drama The Wife saw her surprisingly beat off competition from Gaga to claim the Best Drama Actress at the Golden Globes.

With Olivia Colman, who stars in the English period drama The Favourite, it now appears to be a three-horse race, as the production company Fox Searchlight plans for positioning the film for the upcoming 91st Academy Awards.

Saoirse Ronan is very likely to get a nod again for Mary Queen of Scots, after already being nominated for an Oscar three times.
