Di Caprio Could Finally Win An Oscar According To Bookmakers

Leonardo Di Caprio is the favourite to win the Best Actor Oscar according to William Hill as a new trailer for The Revenant was released on Tuesday. The Titanic actor, who has famously never won a best actor gong, is 2/1 only slightly ahead of Michael Fassbender in the betting at 9/4.  


The Revenant is set to be released slap bang in the middle of awards season and will surely be nominated for a whole host of awards. Could it finally be Leo’s year?” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


The Revenant is 4/1 second favourite to win Best Picture behind Spotlight which is 3/1 favourite.


Brie Larson and Carey Mulligan are joint favourites for Best Actress, both at 3/1 while Saoirse Ronan and Cate Blanchett (for Carol) are both 4/1.
