Oscars Betting Tips

Betting on the Oscars is tricky. It's not like betting on sports when nobody knows the outcome. However, our top Oscars betting tip is to follow the three preceding major awards that fall in January. In the past 20 years:


That is not a foolproof Oscars betting system, but it does narrow the field of odds. The next tip to consider when betting on the Academy Awards is to follow social issues, and other Oscars trends. For example:

  1. Real People - 12 of the last 17 Best Actors won for playing real people, like 2017 winner Gary Oldman (Winston Churchill), including the last two. This used to be a good system for betting on all of the acting roles, but for women that had changed, until Olivia Colman (Queen Anne) sprung a surprise in 2019. She was the second Best Actress this decade to win for playing a real person.
  2. Moonlight - #Oscarssowhite, or Oscars Whitewash, was a movement protesting against the lack of color in the Oscars nominations in 2016. The Academy stressed it would address this, so there were non-white nominations for 2017 - and it could be argued, there had to be a major winner. Moonlight, an independently-made film about a young black man, won Best Picture.
  3. MeToo - Female empowerment dominated Hollywood, and the world, in 2017, and was like many major social issues, reflected in the Oscars. Golden Globe Best Actor winner James Franco, a short price in the Oscars odds, was not nominated after being accused of sexually-exploitative behavior. Best Picture was won by a film with a dominant female lead for the first time since 2004 - The Shape Of Water scoring.

When are the other movie awards?

The biggest mover of the Oscars betting odds are the three other major awards, which will all take place in January 2020: the Golden Globes coming on January 5, the Critic's Choice on January 12, and the Screen Actors Guild's on January 19.

With the Oscars not announcing nominations until January 13, 2020, if there is going to be any early moves in the Oscars betting odds, they are likely to relate to December nominations:
