William Hill have this week taken a quite extraordinary Oscars wager with a punter from London placing a whopping £10,000 on Viola Davis to win the Best Supporting Actress at this year’s ceremony.
The countdown has begun for the Oscars and La La Land looks set to win big.
Dev Patel's odds of winning an Oscar have been slashed following his shock BAFTA win.
The winners at this year’s BAFTAs looks pretty much like a foregone conclusion according to William Hill who have six clear favourites to win the big six awards.
This year’s BAFTAs look set to be a thoroughly predictable affair with the big six categories all having odds on favourites at William Hill. Casey Affleck and Emma Stone head the betting for Best Actor and Best Actress at 1/5 and 4/11 respectively while La La Land is just 1/5 to win the Best Film.
There are a few critics starting to turn on La La Land but the odds at the bookmakers continue to drop with William Hill now offering 8/11 that it wins three of the big four Oscars. It is 5/1 that film manages to win Eleven or more Oscars.
Predictably La La Land looks set to be the this year’s most successful film at the Oscars and it is 2/9 with William Hill to win the Best Picture Oscar, with the film’s director Damien Chazelle almost certain to win Best Director at 1/9.
Since its Venice Film Festival premiere last year, La La Land has been touted as an Oscar contender, and it now seems a question of how many rather than if. It is currently the top pick for Best Picture 2/9, Emma Stone is 10/11 favourite for Best Actress, Damien Chazelle is 1/8 top pick for Best Director, while Ryan Gosling is 9/1 third favourite for Best Actor.
Following the BAFTA announcements, it looks as though the traditional British bias could go out of the window if the betting is anything to go by.
