Best Bets

Oscars betting season is well underway as the top online sports betting sites offer odds on who will walk away with the top awards. The Academy Awards will be looking to put controversy aside, after the confrontation between Will Smith and host Chris Rock last year, and try to focus on the achievements of Tinseltown’s finest.

2022 finally saw spectacle return to cinemas around the world as pandemic-era restrictions began to be lifted. From critical darlings to box-office behemoths like Avatar, audiences flocked to their local cinema last year. Now, the Academy will recognize these achievements on March 12 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Host Jimmy Kimmel will oversee the festivities which are already attracting major attention at the best online sportsbook sites. We asked our resident experts for their Oscars betting picks, plus we have the latest sports betting odds for all the major awards categories.

Best Picture

Nominee Latest Oscars Odds
Everything Everywhere All at Once -1,200
All Quiet on the Western Front +900
The Banshees of Inisherin +1,600
Top Gun: Maverick +1,600
The Fabelmans +1,800
Tár +4,000
Avatar: The Way of Water +10,000
Women Talking +10,000
Elvis +10,000
Triangle of Sadness +10,000

Neil Jordan – The Fabelmans

It’s wild that Steven Spielberg has won just three Oscars over 19 nominations, excluding this year: Best Picture and Best Director for Schindler’s List in 1994, and Best Director for Saving Private Ryan in 1999. This semi-autobiographical movie about Spielberg’s early years seems like it’s ripe for a Spielberg celebration in 2023, which started with a win at the Golden Globes in January.

Sunil Prakash – Everything Everywhere All at Once

Seamlessly blending family drama, multiversal sci-fi, and laugh ’til you cry moments, I can’t quite recall at film like Everything Everywhere. Practically everything about this film is gold and I honestly cannot see how it won’t walk away the winner after picking up wins at the PGA and SAG awards in recent weeks.

Fleur de Jong –Everything Everywhere All at Once

The multi-faceted genre-bending action comes thick and fast, but this is a family drama at its core. The emotional interplay between Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu, and Jamie Lee Curtis rivals any Best Picture winner in any year. This is one of the rare Best Picture front-runners that was a hit with both critics and audiences and I believe it will go down as one of the best in recent memory.

Best Director

Nominee Latest Oscars Odds
Daniels, Everything Everywhere All at Once -1,200
Steven Spielberg, The Fabelmans +500
Martin McDonagh, The Banshees of Inisherin +1,200
Todd Field, Tár +1,400
Ruben Östlund, Triangle of Sadness +5,000

Neil Jordan – Steven Spielberg

See above. I’m expecting Spielberg to tie Capra and Wyler on three Best Director Oscars this year.

Fleur de Jong – Daniels

The Daniels (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) exploded onto the scene with Everything Everywhere but they have been working on the project for at least five years. Their passion for the project is evident in every scene. I could hardly imagine any other director, or directors, who could have converted this concept into the fantastic piece of cinema that it is.

Sunil Prakash – Daniels

It’s a surprisingly open field this year, but I believe that the Daniels have made the greatest contribution to cinema in this year. They re-invigorated multiple careers and have probably made the greatest mutliverse story we have, or if the Flash continues to be a train-wreck, will ever see. I think the Academy will be bold and opt for the Daniels.

Best Actress

Nominee Latest Oscars Odds
Michelle Yeoh, Everything Everywhere All at Once -150
Cate Blanchett, Tár +105
Andrea Riseborough, To Leslie +1,600
Michelle Williams, The Fabelmans +2,500
Ana de Armas, Blonde +4,000

Fleur de Jong – Michelle Yeoh

It’s a shock to discover that Michelle Yeoh has never been nominated for an Oscar before. Her performance as Evelyn is sublime. Not only does she play multiple versions of the same person, she deftly brings to life the sadness, joy, confusion, and love each possesses. It would be a travesty if she did not win.

Neil Jordan – Michelle Yeoh

In my opinion, Everything Everywhere All At Once was the best movie of the year. But since it won’t win Best Picture, we’ll give this to Yeoh, who should have at least earned a nomination for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2001. This is the Academy’s chance to right that wrong.

Sunil Prakash – Cate Blanchett

The Academy loves Cate Blanchett – the Australian has two wins in eight nominations. Although Yeoh is the favorite and front-runner, I feel the Academy will opt for Blanchett as a safe option. For a truly wild pick, imagine the rumors and conspiracy theories if Andrea Riseborough were to win after the controversy surrounding her campaign.

Best Actor

Nominee Latest Oscars Odds
Brendan Fraser, The Whale -190
Austin Butler, Elvis +125
Colin Farrell, The Banshees of Inisherin +1,400
Bill Nighy, Living +5,000
Paul Mescal, Aftersun +6,600

Neil Jordan – Colin Farrell

Farrell also won at the Golden Globes, but honestly, this is a personal pick because I think he’s an incredible actor. I think he should have won for Phone Booth in 2002, but I’m probably in the minority (he wasn’t nominated and Denzel Washington won for Training Day, and I stand behind my statement).

Sunil Prakash – Brendan Fraser

Few could have predicted the career turn-around from Brendan Fraser. From box office smash to MIA, Fraser has had a career like few others. This is the sentimental favorite and the Academy may follow the public on this one.

Fleur de Jong – Austin Butler

For all intents and purposes, Austin Butler is Elvis. Butler embodies the physicality of the King across his life. It takes a lot to eclipse Tom Hanks, but Butler overshadowed the legendary actor in Elvis.

Best Supporting Actress

Nominee Latest Oscars Odds
Angela Bassett, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever +105
Jamie Lee Curtis, Everything Everywhere All at Once +165
Kerry Condon, The Banshees of Inisherin +275
Stephanie Hsu, Everything Everywhere All at Once +2,000
Hong Chau, The Whale +3,300

Fleur de Jong – Stephanie Hsu

In a role that develops across the course of the film, Stephanie Hsu mesmerizes in Everything Everywhere. Channeling the rage and depression of her character, Hsu dazzles across from Michelle Yeoh as the mother/daughter relationship is explored.

Neil Jordan – Angela Bassett

Another Golden Globe winner, Bassett was nominated for Best Actress in What’s Love Got To Do With It, the Tina Turner biopic, in 1993. To win an Oscar exactly 30 years later for her turn as Queen Romanda in the highly-emotional Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, would be the icing on the cake in an amazing career.

Sunil Prakash – Jamie Lee Curtis

I could hardly believe that this is Jamie Lee Curtis’ first Oscar nomination. I suspect we may see a Sean Connery-esque ‘lifetime achievement’ Oscar for Curtis. That being said, Curtis is stunning in Everything Everywhere and nobody should take anything away from her mutli-layered performance.

Best Supporting Actor

Nominee Latest Oscars Odds
Ke Huy Quan, Everything Everywhere All at Once -5,000
Brendan Gleeson, The Banshees of Inisherin +1,200
Barry Keoghan, The Banshees of Inisherin +1,200
Brian Tyree Henry, Causeway +2,800
Judd Hirsch, The Fabelmans +2,800

Neil Jordan – Brendan Gleeson

Ke Huy Quan won the Golden Globe for Everything Everywhere All At Once, but I’m going with Gleeson in his first Oscar nomination.

Fleur de Jong – Ke Huy Quan

It is only fitting that Ke Huy Quan has received the awards and plaudits he has. His turn as Waymond is amazing and keeps the audience guessing throughout.

Sunil Prakash – Ke Huy Quan

Once only known as Indiana Jones’ sidekick ‘Short Round’, Ke Huy Quan returned from retirement to deliver one of the best performances of all time. If he doesn’t win, it will be the upset of the decade.
