Oscar Nominees 2018: Full List And Projected Winners

Natalie Robehmed, Forbes Staff

As nominees ready their acceptance speeches ahead of the 90th Academy Awards this Sunday, the online gambling world has already crowned its winners.

According to bets placed by internet speculators, Best Picture is a toss up between Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy The Shape of Water. Del Toro is out-and-out favorite to nab Best Director.

In the performance categories, Gary Oldman’s portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour makes him bettors’ pick to win Best Actor ahead of Get Out‘s Daniel Kaluuya, while Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri‘s Frances McDormand is the clear favorite for Best Actress.

The bookies have a good track record of selecting eventual Oscar winners. Last year’s online betting favorites won 66% of the time, correctly predicting 16 out of 24 categories, including all the performer awards. That success rate was consistent with 2016, when online favorites won two thirds of the Academy Awards.

Viewers will have to tune in this weekend to find out whether they made good on their money. This year’s Oscars will be awarded on March 4 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, airing at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
