2021 Golden Globe Awards Odds, Picks & Predictions

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler return to host the 78th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday February 28 and we’ve decided to break down the latest betting odds for the event and thrown in a few of our predictions too!

The ‘Globes’ typically kick off Hollywood award season and though they don’t hold the prestige of the Oscars they certainly give a good indicator on who could come out on top for the Academy Awards which takes place on Sunday April 25. The award ceremony tomorrow night takes a look at the very best of film and TV, with numerous awards for actors, actresses and those behind the scenes.

Here’s a look at the latest odds for all of the major categories with an OddsChecker prediction for each! You’ll notice that we’ve listed the odds from the bookmakers from the UK, unfortunately no legal sportsbook is currently offering odds on the Golden Globes, but make sure to check back here in April for the latest Oscars odds. A number of books offered odds on the Academy Awards last year and we can expect the same this time around.

Palm Springs

25/1

Music

OddsChecker verdict: We reported a couple of weeks ago the weight of support behind Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat sequel and it’s time to follow that money in. We all know that Hollywood will love any film poking fun at Republicans!

Kate Hudson
