Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is early Oscar favourite

August 22nd, 2019 Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release, Showbiz

Quentin Tarantino’s new film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has emerged as the new favourite to win the best movie Oscar.

The 2020 awards take place early in the New Year, and a number of the contenders are yet to be released – including Martin Scorsese’s highly anticipated ‘The Irishman’ – which was favourite.

But now Tarantino’s ninth movie, his first in four years, has been been made favourite after a big opening weekend.

Other expected to be in contention are The Last Thing He Wanted – a political thriller starring Ben Affleck and Anne Hathaway, and Tom Hanks’s A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “It is very early in Oscar betting, but it would not be a major shock if it was a straight battle between Tarantino and Scorsese come February.”

Selected Oscar best picture odds:

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood – 3/1
The Irishman – 5/1
The Last Thing He Wanted – 8/1
A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood – 9/1
Jojo Rabbit – 10/1
Avengers: Endgame – 10/1
Cats – 10/1
Rocketman – 14/1
The Lion King – 16/1
1917 – 16/1
