It’s no fun gambling on the favorites in the Oscars, so Max Liu makes the situation for a trio of nicely priced stakes 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 weeks ahead, 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 beautiful film. What is more, Netflix have played a blinder throughout the Oscar campaign, emphasising the labor and specialized nous that went into realising Cuaron’s vision and their case should prove persuasive here as it did with the Directors Guild of America, in which it took the top prize.
According to the gambling, Green Book 4.20 is your nearest rival to Roma, but it’s hard to confirm when its director, Peter Farrelly, didn’t get a nod for Best Director. Only four films have won Best Picture without a Best Director nomination.
The movie with the very best chance of causing an upset is, for my money, Black Panther 25.00. True, it doesn’t have a nomination in any of the other significant classes — directing, acting, writing — but it might acquire support in the Academy’s enlarged, younger and more diverse membership.
