The Academy Awards offer the most enticing event of the year. The best achievements in moviemaking out of 2017 will confront for golden statuettes in many different categories as well as the Oscars gambling odds allow you to cash in on these films worthy of Hollywood’s top honor.
Who better to break down the top bets for the 90th Academy Awards than a movie buff from vegas? Film critic Josh Bell gives his insights into which films should walk away with the Significant awards–along with 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
Phone Me 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 Outdoor Ebbing, Missouri would be the front runners to win Best Picture at 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 Will 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 – all reliable ancient Oscar indicators. It also has a social conscience that is timely although not overly divisive, which might place it right in the sweet spot of what Academy voters wish to promote (or to be seen as marketing ).
What Should Win: The Form of Water also picked up some significant early awards from critics groups, in addition to the top honor in the Critics Choice Awards, and it boasts the most overall nominations (with 13). Guillermo del Toro’s fable about the love affair between a mute cleaning woman and a mysterious amphibious humanoid monster is also more ambitious and creative than most of the other nominees, but it might prove too weird to prevail as Best Picture.
