07:00, 11 Mar 2023

The 95th Academy Awards air on Sunday night and this year’s instalment could be the most interesting in years, with a plethora of stunning films released over the last 12 months. .

We’ve decided to delve into the Betfred markets and look at the biggest categories that are up for grabs in Los Angeles this weekend. 

Best Picture

Everything Everywhere All At Once: 1/12

All Quiet On The Western Front: 10/1

The Banshees Of Inisherin: 14/1

Top Gun: Maverick: 20/1

The Fabelmans: 33/1

Tar: 50/1

Elvis: 66/1

Triangle Of Sadness: 100/1

Avatar: The Way Of Water: 100/1

Women Talking: 100/1

This one looks pretty wrapped up already with Everything Everywhere All At Once priced at just 1/12 to sweep the Best Picture award. Is there any chance of an upset? All Quiet On The Western Front picked up best film at the BAFTAs so has a chance, albeit a very slim one. 

All Quiet On The Western Front to win Best Picture - 10/1

Best Director

Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheinert - Everything Everywhere All At Once: 1/12

Steven Spielberg - The Fabelmans: 6/1

Martin Mcdonagh - The Banshees Of Inisherin: 16/1

Todd Field - Tar: 20/1

Ruben Ostlund - Triangle Of Sadness: 50/1

Another award that also seems destined to go to Everything Everywhere All At Once. Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert are the heavy favourites to pick up the Best Director gong at 1/12 but there is reason to look further afield. Steven Spielberg picked up the same award at the Golden Globes in January, which is often a decent barometer for Academy Award success.

Best Actor

Brendan Fraser - The Whale: 4/7

Austin Butler - Elvis: 5/4

Colin Farrell - The Banshees Of Insherin: 12/1

Paul Mescal - Aftersun: 33/1

Bill Nighy - Living: 50/1

The Brendan Fraser renaissance is one of the most talked about narratives of this year’s Oscars and it would be a big surprise if The Whale actor didn’t pick up a golden statuette. Austin Butler’s excellent turn as Elvis Presley will be Fraser’s biggest competition, having already beaten him to Best Actor awards at both the Golden Globes and BAFTAs. 

Brendan Fraser to win Best Actor - 4/7

Best Actress

Michelle Yeoh - Everything Everywhere All At Once: 4/7

Cate Blanchett - Tar: 5/4

Andrea Riseborough - To Leslie: 20/1

Michelle Williams - The Fabelmans: 20/1

Ana De Armas - Blonde: 50/1

Michelle Yeoh looks a decent bet on what could be a historic night for Everything Everywhere All At Once. Yeoh has already won a Golden Globe for her role as a dissatisfied laundromat owner turned multiverse martial artist, but was beaten by Cate Blanchett at the BAFTAs.

Best Supporting Actor

Ke Huy Quan - Everything Everywhere All At Once: 1/66

Brendan Gleeson - The Banshees Of Inisherin: 11/1

Barry Keoghan - The Banshees Of Inisherin: 11/1

Brian Tyree Henry - Causeway: 50/1

Judd Hirsch - The Fabelmans: 50/1

The biggest favourite of the night goes to Everything Everywhere All At Once actor Ke Huy Quan who, like Brendan Fraser, has returned to the big time in another Hollywood feel-good story. At 1/66 it seems unlikely he’ll be pipped but if you fancy an upset, Barry Keoghan’s role in The Banshees Of Inisherin was particularly breathtaking and at 11/1 is worth considering.

Best Supporting Actress

Angela Bassett - Black Panther: Wakanda Forever: 5/4

Jamie Lee Curtis - Everything Everywhere All At Once: 7/4

Kerry Condon - The Banshees Of Inisherin: 2/1

Hong Chau - The Whale: 25/1

Stephanie Hsu - Everything Everywhere All At Once: 33/1

The race for the Best Supporting Actress award is fierce. Two-time Oscar nominee Angela Bassett is the current favourite at 5/4 and already has a Golden Globe in the bag for her role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever but Kerry Condon picked up Best Supporting Actress at the BAFTAs so should be appreciated at 2/1. Jamie Lee Curtis’ excellent performance in Everything Everywhere All At Once is also a major contender.

Angela Bassett to win Best Supporting Actress - 5/4
