The Brits are destined for big success at the Golden Globes, and the Bookmakers are already seeing a big Oscar night for the UK film industry.
The Golden Globes are the first major gongs of ‘awards season’ ahead of the BAFTAs and then the big one, the Oscars.
Now the Globes, voted for by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, has announced their nominations and it is full of potential British success in all the big categories.
Dunkirk, the co-British, American, Dutch and French production is favourite for best movie along with its British director Christopher Nolan.
Gary Oldman is favourite for best actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the Darkest Hour, whilst Sally Hawkins is joint-favourite for the Best Actress gong for her part in the Shape of Water.
“As it stands the Golden Globe betting lends itself to the Oscars, so the odds are similar and if that stands up – the Brits are in for a very strong showing during prize season in Hollywood,” confirmed OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.
“In this market you do get the odd upset but generally the market leaders do come out on top.”
