Will Globes Lead On To Oscars Glory For DiCaprio?
With the US release date for The Revenant just two days before the Golden Globes take place, Leonardo DiCaprio is 1/5 to scoop a Golden Globe for his performance in the movie and is 2/7 to win the Oscar for Best Actor. He is miles ahead of the rest of the contenders with Michael Fassbender his closest rival at 7/2 in both categories.
Spotlight looks most likely to scoop Best Picture in the Globes at 2/5 and is 4/7 for the Oscar, while Brie Larsson heads the betting for Best Actress in both at 4/7 (Globes) and 4/6 (Oscars).
“The Globes is usually the first indicator as to who and what will be the big players during Awards Season and if the betting is correct, there could be a few people picking doing the Oscar/Globe double this year,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
