Christian Bale and Glenn Close favourites for Oscar glory

| 23.01.2019

Our traders have revealed the most likely winners at this year’s Oscars.

With nominations now confirmed, we make Roma the even-money favourite to win Best Picture ahead of Green Book (4/1) and The Favourite (8/1).

Christian Bale is Evens favourite to take home the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Dick Cheney in Vice.

He’s followed in the betting by 5/4 shot Rami Malek for Bohemian Rhapsody and 6/1 chance Bradley Cooper for A Star Is Born.

Meanwhile, Alfonso Cuaron is clear favourite at 1/8 to scoop the Best Director gong, with Glenn Close odds-on at 4/9 for Leading Actress, ahead of The Favourite star Olivia Colman 4/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Roma looks set to scoop a handful of awards at the Oscars with Alfonso Cuaron for Best Director being the most likely winner in the book.”
