It’s no fun betting on the favorites in the Oscars, so Max Liu makes the situation for a trio of nicely priced bets for Tinsel Town’s big night this Sunday…
Best Picture — Roma place to romp to victory
This marketplace looked aggressive when nominations were declared but, with two days to go, Roma 1.58 is set to be the first foreign language film to win.
Mexican director and screenwriter Alfonso Cuaron reached deep into his youth, and his nation’s political background, to craft this gorgeous movie. What’s more, Netflix have played a blinder during the Oscar campaign, emphasising the labor and technical nous that went to realising Cuaron’s vision and their case needs to prove persuasive here because it did with all the Directors Guild of America, in which it took the top prize.
According to the gambling, Green Book 4.20 is your closest rival to Roma, but it’s hard to confirm when its director, Peter Farrelly, did not get a nod for Best Director. Only four movies have won Best Picture without a Best Director nomination.
The film with the best chance of causing an upset is, for my money, Black Panther 25.00. True, it does not have a nomination in any of the other significant categories — directing, acting, writing — but it might win support from the Academy’s expanded, younger and more diverse membership.
