Starting off with perhaps the most prestigious award, bookies appear to have essentially crowned a winner.
Chloe Zhao’s drama Nomadland is the clear front runner in the race, currently the best price of 1/6 to take home the biggest award on the night.
The Trial of the Chicago Seven is the second favourite with every bookmaker, currently priced at 6/1.
There’s another strong favourite in the Best Actor category, with a posthumous favourite in Chadwick Boseman at 1/8 best price.
Some bookies make odds even shorter, with multiple firms going 1/16 on his performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
Welshman Anthony Hopkins is 7/1 second following his performance in The Father, at the ripe old age of 83.
Finally, a competitive betting market! Bookmakers are far less clear on the winner of Best Actress, with no odds on favourite listed.
An award that has thrown up drama in the past seems to be a done-deal according to the current betting markets, with the aforementioned Chloe Zhao the 1/14 favourite.
In layman’s terms, that means bookies are currently predicting a 93.3% chance of Zhao taking home Best Director in just a few days’ time.
