And The Oscar Goes To…Check Out Who Is Predicted To Win An Academy Award In 2019 📽️

Hollywood’s biggest annual event will take place on February 24th 2019 ⭐️🎵

The 91st Academy Awards are nearly here and Oscar fever is fully underway. With the fall film festivals giving us a glimpse of the main contenders it will be up to the 7,000 members to vote on the twenty-four categories.

Traditionally, the film critics, the Screen Actor Guild Awards and the Golden Globes have given us the best insight into who will take home the coveted prize, but with the rise of social media buzz and the Academy’s changing demographics it’s now harder to predict the winners.

However, one traditional outlet that seems to get it right each year and update their predictions are the bookies! So we’ve taken a look at some of the top sites via the Oscars betting related website to bring you the most up-to-date predictions.

BEST PICTURE: A Star Is Born

Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, A Star Is Born, is sitting on top of the pile but Roma, BlacKkKlansman, Green Book and First Man are also in contention for an Oscar nod. A Quiet Place might also sneak into the lineup.

BEST DIRECTOR: Alfonso Cuaron

Alfonso Cuaron is the overwhelming favorite to take the best director accolade for Roma. He also won the Oscar for Best Director and Best Film Editing in 2013 for Gravity so this isn’t his first rodeo – unlike Bradley Cooper who’s making his directorial debut with A Star Is Born.

BEST ACTOR: Christian Bale

The bookies have Bradley Cooper in A Star Is Born at the top right now but Christian Bale is creeping behind him with his extraordinary transformation into Dick Cheney for Vice. We’re tipping Bale.

BEST ACTRESS: Lady Gaga

Glenn Close (The Wife), Viola Davis (Widows), Olivia Colman (The Favourite) and Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) are hotly tipped, but Lady Gaga is odds-on to take the golden statuette for her role as Ally Maine in A Star Is Born.

Best Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali

Timothee Chalamet (Beautiful Boy), Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me) are in the running with Sam Elliott (A Star is Born). But it’s Mahershala Ali (Green Book) that is pipping it at the moment.

Best Supporting Actress: Amy Adams or Regina King

Amy Adams (Vice) and Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk) seem to be in a two-way battle for this Academy Award. Looks like the critics, bookies and social media are also divided so this one is too close to call!

Best Original Screenplay: The Favourite

The Favourite is the favourite! Vice, Green Book, Roma, Bohemian Rhapsody, Isle of Dogs, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and Eighth Grade are likely to be contenders and worth following. But The Favourite is top of the predictions.
