The Academy Awards offer the very enticing pop-culture gambling event of the year. The best achievements in moviemaking from 2017 will face off for gold statuettes in many different categories as well as the Oscars betting odds permit you to cash in on these movies worthy of Hollywood’s top honour.
Who better to break down the top bets for your 90th Academy Awards than a movie buff from vegas? Film critic Josh Bell gives his insights into which movies should walk off with the major awards—and the cash — if the Academy Awards air on ABC Sunday, March 4 at 8:30 p.m. ET
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri 7/5
The Shape of Water 2/1
Get Out 13/2
Lady Bird 22/1
Call Me by Your Title 50/1 Phantom Thread 80/1
The Post 100/1
Darkest Hour 100/1
THESE TWO LIVE UNDERDOGS ARE PROVIDING BETTING VALUE IN THE OSCAR ODDS FOR BEST PICTURE
The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri are the front runners to win Best Picture in the 90th Academy Awards, but fans of the underdog could find worth in Lady Bird or Get out when the Oscars hand out the hardware into the best in Hollywood on March 4.
What’s Going to Win: The momentum is behind Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outdoor Ebbing, Missouri, following its wins at the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the BAFTAs — most dependable ancient Oscar indicators. Additionally, it has a social conscience that’s timely although not too divisive, which may place it right in the sweet spot of what Academy voters want to promote (or to be viewed as promoting).
What Must Win: The Shape of Water also picked up some important ancient awards from critics groups, in addition to the top honor from the Critics Choice Awards, and also boasts the maximum overall nominations (with 13). Guillermo del Toro’s fable about the romance between a mute cleaning girl and a mysterious amphibious humanoid monster is also more ambitious and creative than the majority of the other nominees, but it might prove too weird to prevail as Best Picture.
