2020 Jussi Awards Actor and Actress predictions: Best Actor nominees
Currently, Pekka Strang stands the best chance of claiming the 2020 Jussi Award for Best Actor according to 22BET Sportsbook. According to the online sportsbook news in Finland, he’s the lead role in Koirat eivät käytä housuja/Dogs Don’t Wear Pants.
In the movie, Pekka Strang plays a grieving widower and medical surgeon who finds unexpected comfort in a dominatrix. Fortunately, his excellent performance alongside lead actress Krista Kosonen has rightfully earned him a Best Actor nomination.
Consequently, our 2020 Jussi Awards Actor and Actress predictions have labelled him a safe bet with odds at 1.75. Furthermore, Matti Ristinen the second Best Actor nominee thanks to his role in Olen Suomalainen.
Ristinen was tasked with playing the role of Finnish music legend Kari Tapio in the biographical film Olen Suomalainen. Fortunately, Ristinen excellently paid homage to Tapio as the movie was the second most-watched film in Finland in 2019.
Currently, the chances of Matti Ristenen claiming the Best Actor award are at 2.50 on 22BET Sportsbook. On the other hand, Amir Escandari stands the worst chance of claiming the 2020 Jussi Award for Best Actor.
Despite the success of the movie Aurora, the actor will be a risky bet on with odds at 5.00.
Mimosa Willamo is the top Jussi Award for Best Actress nominee
Aurora’s lead actress Mimosa Willamo stands the best chance on 22BET Sportsbook of winning a Jussi statue for Best Actress. In the movie, Willamo plays a free-spirit-alcoholic who agrees to play matchmaker for an Iranian refugee desperate to stay in Finland.
Furthermore, her astonishing performance in Aurora has gained her widespread recognition locally and internationally. Consequently, our Jussi Awards Actor and Actress predictions have labelled Mimosa Willamo a safe bet with odds at 1.60. Another nominee eyeing this year’s Jussi statue for Best Actress is Jaana Saarinen.
She’ll be hoping to gain the ultimate recognition at the Jussi Awards for her lead role in Äiti/A Mother. In the movie, Saarinen gives an outstanding performance as a freed prisoner who goes in search of her grown-up daughter.
Currently, Saarinen has the second-best odds on 22BET Sportsbook to achieve the Best Actress with odds at 2.20. Lastly, Suvi-Tuuli Teerinkoski is among the nominees for the 2020 Jussi Award for Best Actress.
Teerinkoski plays the role of a small-town girl whose envy for a new girl leads her to a series of unfortunate events. However, the actor currently finds herself in an unfavourable position of winning on the online sportsbook in Finland.
Consequently, our 2020 Jussi Awards Actor and Actress predictions have labelled Teerinkoski a risky bet with odds at 5.00.
