Odds for 88th Annual Academy Awards are Taking Shape

The 88th Annual Academy Awards are just around the corner, and the bets are beginning to trickle in for the various categories with The Revenant the current favorite to take home Best Picture.

UK betting firm Ladbrokes is currently posting The Revenant as the favorite to win Best Picture at 4/7, with Spotlight sitting at 9/4 and The Big Short coming in at 6/1. Brooklyn, Bridge of Spies, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, and The Road all have the same 100/1 odds of winning.

Leonardo DiCaprio appears to be a lock for Best Actor, as he has 1/100 odds for his role in The Remnant, while Eddie Redmayne has the second best odds in the category at 20/1 odds. Brie Larsen is expected to win Best Actress for her role in The Room, as she has 1/20 odds, while the second best odds are Saorise Ronan for the film Brooklyn, where she posts 12/1 odds of winning.

The Academy Awards are set to be held on Sunday, February 28th, and will begin at 8:30pm EST, which will be televised throughout the world.

Obviously Leonardo DiCaprio is a big favourite to win not only for Best Actor but at some other categories as well, didn't watch the movie still but the odds are quite significant, it's pretty amazing that you can bet on almost everything these days.

I haven't seen many of the movies, but really enjoyed The Martian. Can't comment on the others.
